Edwards finished the 2019 season with 45 tackles (33 solo), one sack, six defensed passes and one fumble recovery across 15 games.
The 2019 third-round pick was in and out of the starting lineup during the campaign, but he seemed to be gathering momentum as the season came to a close. Edwards logged four of his six pass breakups over the last six contests and notched multiple stops in six of his last seven games overall. The Kentucky product will compete to retain a starting job in 2020, although the potential return of Justin Evans (toe) after a season on injured reserve could certainly prove an obstacle.
Edwards recorded three tackles (two solo) and recovered a fumble in the Buccaneers' 38-35 win over the Colts on Sunday.
The rookie alertly picked up a Nyheim Hines fumble at the Buccaneers' 14-yard line forced by Devin White with 10:45 remaining in the contest, helping prevent the Colts from adding to their 35-31 lead at the time. It was the first fumble recovery of Edwards' career, and he also notched his third straight three-tackle tally. The rookie safety has multiple stops in four consecutive contests overall, but his 36 tackles for the season make him a marginal IDP prospect.
Edwards made six tackles (five solo) and a sack in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Saints.

Edwards logged six tackles (four solo), including one for loss, and also defensed a pass in the Buccaneers' 32-31 loss to the Giants on Sunday.
The rookie drew the start at strong safety and turned in a solid all-around performance.
