"It's great being out on the field and getting my hands in the dirt. It's just what I do," Edwards said. "Being without it does something to me. I'm really enjoying this."

For Edwards, who was forced out of action for the entire 2011 season (his first season with the Panthers) with a triceps injury, his present joy is a stark contrast to the hurt he felt last year.

"It's like being that kid locked up in school and watching everybody else out there playing around through the window," Edwards said of his rehabilitation process. "Being out here again is making my year."

And he can make a difference for defensive line coach Eric Washington's unit, as well as the Panthers defense as a whole.

"He has the ability to make our defense work, to make our defense fit," Washington said. "We're excited about having him out there."



Looking forward to seeing him at camp as well.

He is huge. He's a run stuffer. People get caught up in sack numbers and say that he's nothing special, which is retarded for his position. He's an above average nose. He holds the line and stuffs the run. He very rarely get's pushed out of position.

He's never had good tackle numbers or anchored a good run defense either so there's no evidence to suggest he's an above average nose or run stuffer unfortunately.

He can't hurt though.

My point was that he holds his position, which reroutes runs. He doesn't get pushed off the point of attack - ie he doesn't allow huge running lanes. He allows the linebackers and blitzers to do their jobs. That IS his job, not piling up statistics. He's an above average player for what he's asked to do.

Ya he would def better this defense from last year.
I dnt have hopes in Fua and McClain. Hope they do well this year but man they were tough to watch last year. Drafting a DT in 2013.

Edwards not as 'huge' as Kris Jenkins. Or Kemo. That really speak on how bad we sucked at DT since they left, when people starts saying Edwards is huge.
