The Buffalo Bills released defensive tackle Dwan Edwards as they try to trim their roster down to 53 players by the end of the day on Friday, the Buffalo News reports. Edwards played two seasons in Buffalo after joining the team as a free agent from the Baltimore Ravens, and racked up 109 tackles in 27 appearances.
Analysis: Edwards was a pretty steady source of tackles as a defensive end in the Bills' 3-4 defense. He never fit in at defensive tackle this offseason when new coordinator Dave Wannstedt reverted Buffalo back to a base 4-3 defense, however. Edwards' release should also serve as a sign of the Bills' defensive strides this offseason. The team signed Mario Williams and Mark Anderson to bolster the line, and Kyle Williams' return from a nagging foot injury made a stout lineman like Edwards expendable.
