Dwan Edwards signs with the Bills

Just hours after Dwan Edwards said that free agency has been difficult, the defensive lineman has taken himself off the market.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Edwards agreed to an undisclosed contract with the Buffalo Bills.  Edwards, who should mostly play defensive end in the team’s new 3-4 defense,  also visited the Broncos and Seahawks.

Edwards told the Baltimore Sun Tuesday that some teams had expressed reservations about the neck he surgically repaired in 2008.  It’s a high-risk, high-reward signing for Buffalo.  (We had Edwards in our top ten free agents a few weeks back.)

The Bills also signed linebacker Andra Davis earlier Tuesday.

    Wow…
    Thought reports said you left WITHOUT a deal…
    May you forever be isolated to the society that is the pride and joy of Dave & Busters’
    What a complete waste, he would’ve gotten so much more playing time and experience this year.
    The Bills like to pickup free-agent busts anyway, so good-riddens Edwards!!!

    I love this now we can move towards our o line and the rest on that side of the ball.

    Unlucky, Dwan.

    its riddance, and let’s go Buffalo.

    It’s a start for the Bills. A lot more work to be done. That said, while Edwards/Stroud could be solid, they need to pick up some young assets later on.
    But this pickup probably allows them to wait on DL. While I think they should pop a NT early if there is value, I think they’ll probably roll with the undersized Kyle Williams for a bit and find a cheaper guy later on.
    More than likely, their starting pieces for the defensive front 7 are in place. Not saying it’s going to be a good front 7, but the pieces are likely in place. Now, they need to focus on addressing both tackle spots, adding a WR, add a QB.

    Ravens lost a player who had a nice contract year but not sure how he’ll hold up in the long run. Shame he took what probably ends up being a little more money for chance to star in a Ravens Superbowl run.

    Sad to see him go, but I am pretty sure the Bills made out better on our deal a few years back. What a joke willis is.
    Plus, I love Baltimore but it is not much better than BLO.
    Go Ravens!

    Don’t sound so bitter Ravenator!

    Way to step it up Buddy Nix. Two solid free agents in one day. Our offense may remain putrid, but our defense will be drastically improved.

  11. BuffaloThad says: Mar 16, 2010 8:36 PM

    Go Bills. Signing high priced free agents rarely ever works. This is another value signing with tremendous upside. Now the Bills will pick the best Left Tackle in the draft at the #9, then a QB in round 2 (Lefevere or McCoy). It most likely will be another long year-but we are rebuilding the correct way after many messed up drafts (Donte Whitner, Mike Williams and Aaron Maybin). Now the Bills need to get the draft right!!!

  12. Al_Davis_needs_a_dirtnap says: Mar 16, 2010 8:37 PM

    Look out, this signing, along with Cornel Green , should wrap up the AFC east!

    What are you thinking Dwan? After being the Ravens highest draft pick in 04 (2nd round thanks to the Boller trade/draft in 03) & waiting for you to do something, the team that kept you when you were hurt, then you finally show somwthing & you run out of town to Buffalo? You are giving up the chance for more playing time & a run @ the Super Bowl in Baltimore to go to Buffalo?? After what the Ravens did for you? Good riddence & have a great time in gray Buffalo!!!

    I normally don’t point out typos, but this one is just too funny to ignore.
    “some teams had expressed reservations about the neck he surgically repaired in 2008.”
    Just whose neck did Edwards surgically repair? And why are teams concerned about it? Was this his first surgery? Or did he perform others?
    What’s a surgeon doing playing football? Does he have his hands insured? You know, in case he injures one or both and can no longer perform surgery.

    Hey Ravenator…it’s “good riddance”. You’re too stupid to even display sour grapes correctly.

  16. mastablasta says: Mar 16, 2010 8:45 PM

    dwan edwards has taken a long time to develope,thought the ravens might have tried harder to hold onto him,guess they figure he hit his best last season,and his best just isnt good enough,but he is a descent pick up,nothing that blows a mind,but solid pick up[when he wants to give it his all]

  17. Ravenator says: Mar 16, 2010 9:07 PM

    Pardon me I’ve been pregaming for st pattys day…
    RIDDANCE…
    Enjoy another season of missing the playoffs coupled with false hopes of what will forever be an organization that’s truly upside down.
    You can watch us march into the playoffs though…again…

  18. JOldewurtel says: Mar 16, 2010 9:25 PM

    I hope for the Bills sake this isn’t a 5/$25M-ish with $12M guaranteed contract given to a former Ravens DE… This has Anthony Weaver Part 2 written all over it… and ask Houston how well that turned out for them.

  19. mastablasta says: Mar 16, 2010 9:58 PM

    Sad to see him go, but I am pretty sure the Bills made out better on our deal a few years back. What a joke willis is…………..
    i dont know what team and player you have been watching for the past couple years but wow couldnt be much further from the truth,why dont you take a sec and look up who the bills used that pick from baltimore on,oh and you say that after a season where willis totals 14 TDs, your comment is the joke

  20. lets go bills83 says: Mar 16, 2010 10:31 PM

    your a loser ravenator… Who cares about how bad the bills are. Did you watch the olympics ? Number 39 on team USA who won tournament mvp….. yeh Ryan Miller. He have him to look forward to for a long time and maybe in couple years the bills might get it right but until then go sabres. Besides Buffalo is trying to become the City oF HOCKEY….

  21. Dr Hiram J Puddlestone says: Mar 16, 2010 11:41 PM

    I never wish any ex-Ravens ill will…
    Best of luck to you Dwan and hope you have a long successfull career.

    Pretty sure the Bills did that for Willis didnt they? Gave him a year to recover and paid him…etc. Minus the chance to play for a SB team obviously. Just saying.
    Willis got what 14 1 yard TD runs? Give me a break. Rice made that team, not Willis. Excuse me if I think McGahee and is huge contract was a joke. Is he worth 6 million this year? Did he not suck the past 2 years, or was that someone else. Really?
    The Bills got Trent Edwards with their pick… so I give you that… maybe it is a wash… haha.
    Dallas bound! Go Ravens!

    “It’s a high-risk, high-reward signing for Buffalo. (We had Edwards in our top ten free agents a few weeks back.)

    No, it’s a high-risk, low-reward signing. As a Ravens fan, I’m glad he’s gone. Edwards stinks.
    If he is in the top-10 of your free agents then A) No. 11 must real, real stink or B) You have no clue.

    Wow someone from Baltimore is ripping on Buffalo…isn’t that like the 500 pounder making fun of the 600 pounder?
