“It was fun. It was kind of a situation for me coming in and not knowing the team. I wasn't really sure how it was going to be and what my expectations were. I hadn't heard great things about the defensive line,” Edwards said when reached by phone.
“But throughout the season I could see us getting better and improving. And I really felt we won some games for us.”
Edwards, who turns 32 in May, signed a one-year deal worth $1.5 million with Carolina last year after the Bills released him before the start of the regular season. Despite missing two games late in the season with a wrist injury, Edwards finished with six sacks, the most by a Panthers defensive tackle since Kris Jenkins had seven in 2002.
Only Ndamukong Suh, with eight, had more sacks among NFC defensive tackles.
That last line, as Johnny Carson would say, "I did not know that."
