It remains to be seen if that's how the rotation actually shakes out, but it's worth keeping an eye on Edwards in IDP formats, as he posted 15 tackles and a forced fumble through the first four games despite playing less than 50 percent of the defensive snaps in three of those outings.

Edwards is eyeing an increased role on defense heading into Year 2, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.
Edwards only handled 115 defensive snaps across 16 games as a rookie. Though he officially logged four starts, he never played more than 22 snaps on defense in a single contest. If the undrafted linebacker out of Wisconsin is able to take a step forward in his development heading into the second year of his career, the Eagles could see fit to rely on him to handle an expanded interior role.
