Edwards recorded 30 tackles over 16 regular-season games in 2019.
Although Edwards made four starts, he never played more than 22 defensive snaps in any game. The undrafted rookie out of Wisconsin showcased a strong special-teams presence, however, ranking second on the unit with nine tackles. The Eagles will return their entire linebacking corps in 2020, so Edwards is set up for a similar role in his sophomore campaign.
Edwards will likely start at middle linebacker Sunday against the Cowboys, Dave Zagrano of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Edwards has earned rave reviews around the team since signing as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin in the spring, and he's primed to see an expanded opportunity in Week 7 with Nigel Bradham (ankle) ruled out and Zach Brown released earlier in the week. Edwards saw 10 defensive snaps last Sunday against the Vikings -- his first real run of non-special teams work -- and recorded four solo tackles.
Edwards is expected to sign with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports.
Edwards had potential to be a late-round pick after totaling 112 tackles, three sacks and three interceptions during his senior season at Wisconsin, but ultimately ended up going unselected. He exceeded 80 tackles in all four years as a Badger and figures to serve in a special teams role if he can crack the 53-man roster.
