DL Edwards a grinder

Seeing Baltimore free agent Dwan Edwards here at One Bills Drive today (Tuesday) is an encouraging sight.

What I like about Dwan Edwards game is he’s a grinder. In a 3-4 system the defensive ends are not going to rack up a lot of big time stats like DEs in a 4-3.

They’ve got to do a lot of the dirty work to allow the linebackers to make plays. They’ve got to hold the point of attack and help to stretch out run plays. Edwards is known as a blue collar player, and a darn good one.

Evidence of that is being ranked among the top 10 unrestricted free agents out there when the signing period began.

Edwards had two free agent visits within the first week of the signing period (Seattle, Denver), but he hasn’t signed yet, likely giving the Bills hope that they can close a deal. Time will tell.
