Panthers re-signed DT Dwan Edwards.

Edwards, 34, will return as rotational depth behind starters Star Lotulelei and Kawann Short. He received poor marks from PFF across 643 snaps last season.
Tue, Mar 10, 2015 01:09:00 PM

Panthers DT Dwan Edwards was forced from Sunday's game against the Bucs with a leg injury, and will not return.

Edwards went down late in the second half. Colin Cole is now in opposite Star Lotulelei at defensive tackle.

Panthers declared DT Dwan Edwards, WR Marvin McNutt, CB D.J. Moore, CB Josh Norman, RB Armond Smith, S Robert Lester and DT Sione Fua inactive for Week 7 against the Rams.

Colin Cole is starting opposite Star Lotulelei at defensive tackle in Edwards and Fua's absence. Otherwise, the Panthers come into Week 7 as one of the league's healthier teams. Edwards (hamstring) has a good shot at returning for Week 7.
Sun, Oct 20, 2013 11:36:00 AM

Panthers DT Dwan Edwards (hamstring) practiced on Thursday for the first time since Week 2.

"It’s by no means 100 percent at all, but I wanted to go out there and feel and at least see what I was able to do," Edwards said. "At some point in time you got to see where you’re at." Colin Cole has been starting in Edwards' place next to Star Lotulelei. Edwards hopes to play Sunday against the Rams.

Panthers DT Dwan Edwards is not expected to play in Week 3 against the Giants due to a thigh injury.

Colin Cole is expected to get the start. Edwards graded out positively in run defense in Week 1 per Pro Football Focus, but was part of the problem as C.J. Spiller shredded the Panthers for 6.44 yards per carry last Sunday.

Panthers re-signed DT Dwan Edwards.

Edwards turns 32 in May, but showed in 2012 that he has gas left in the tank. His six sacks were the most by a Panthers defensive tackle in a decade. Edwards' return gives some credibility to a Carolina interior line that is annually among the NFL's worst. They need to continue to add talent in April's draft.
Fri, Mar 22, 2013 10:05:00 PM

The Dolphins are hosting free agent DT Dwan Edwards on Friday.

Edwards has a one-year, $1.5 million offer on the table from the Panthers, but he's looking for more. A penetrating, three-technique tackle, Edwards would be a starter in Carolina. He'd back up Randy Starks and Paul Soliai in Miami.
Fri, Mar 22, 2013 03:44:00 PM

There has been no movement in negotiations between the Panthers and free agent DT Dwan Edwards.

The Panthers made Edwards a one-year, $1.5 million offer last week. He says he has a two-year deal on the table from another team and is inclined to take it if Carolina doesn't up the ante. Edwards, 32 in May, posted 6.5 sacks as a 4-3 tackle last season.
Tue, Mar 19, 2013 12:04:00 PM

The Panthers have offered free agent DT Dwan Edwards a one-year deal.

Edwards is reportedly weighing "several contract offers," and one team is said to have been a playoff team last year. The one-year offer isn't expected to be enough to woo him back to Carolina after Edwards recorded 6.5 sacks last season. The Panthers view him as a priority, but they have no money.
Thu, Mar 14, 2013 02:43:00 PM

Free agent DT Dwan Edwards says he would like to re-sign with the Panthers.

The Panthers have already reached out to Edwards, so there's mutual interest. The 32-year-old said he enjoyed playing on the interior in the 4-3 after being a 3-4 end earlier in his career. Edwards should come relatively cheap.
Thu, Feb 28, 2013 03:48:00 PM

The Panthers have reached out to free agent DT Dwan Edwards about a new contract.

Edwards was Carolina's lone effective interior defensive lineman in 2012, and new GM Dave Gettleman is on board with trying to retain him. Going on age 32, Edwards should not be a highly coveted free agent if he hits the market.
Thu, Feb 21, 2013 02:10:00 PM

Panthers DT Dwan Edwards (wrist) has been ruled out for Week 15 against the Chargers.

Edwards hasn't returned to practice since missing Week 14 and is out indefinitely. The Panthers will also be without Jonathan Stewart (ankle) and Geoff Hangartner (foot) for Sunday's game. Hangartner's absence means a struggling Jeff Byers will make his first start since being benched in Week 11.
Sat, Dec 15, 2012 07:37:00 PM

Panthers DT Dwan Edwards suffered a left ankle injury in Sunday's loss, and is sporting a protective boot.

According to coach Ron Rivera, Edwards' status is "uncertain" for Week 9. That would suggest he's dealing with a high-ankle sprain, and highly unlikely to suit up against the Redskins. Edwards has started all seven games this season, but made little impact against the run or in the pass rush.
Mon, Oct 29, 2012 02:41:00 PM

The Panthers have already inserted newly acquired DT Dwan Edwards into their starting lineup.

Edwards will play the "three-technique" pass-rushing interior position while bulkier Ron Edwards handles the nose. Dwan has never been a big-time sack guy (career-high 2.5), but it's difficult to imagine him being any worse than what Carolina was previously trotting out. We still recommend targeting the Panthers' defense for fantasy matchup purposes, especially in the run game.
