While hosting the Dwan Edwards Elite Football Camp at Wendy’s Field at Daylis Stadium, Edwards announced that he believed his NFL career was over.
“I haven’t done anything official. That’s not my style,” Edwards said. “But I’m pretty sure I’m done.”
He added, "I’m probably done. For the most part, I’m pretty excited about hanging it up and seeing what’s next. I’ve had an amazing journey and the people in Montana have been amazing."
Edwards' career began with the Baltimore Ravens in 2004. He played with the team for five seasons before joining the Buffalo Bills for two years. For the last four years, the defensive tackle has played for the Carolina Panthers. In his career, Edwards recorded 355 total tackles, 19.5 sacks, three interceptions, three forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries, and one defensive touchdown.
Looking back on his career, Edwards called it a "blessing."
“I’ve played 12 years and the average is about three,” said Edwards. “To get to play that long has been a blessing.”null
