Bears part ways with receiver Armanti Edwards


Seven years ago this weekend, Armanti Edwards authored one of the greatest wins — not upsets — in college football history.

Tomorrow, he’ll have plenty of time to watch the rematch.

According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, the Bears released the former Appalachian State quarterback, who led the Mountaineers to two national championships and a win over Michigan.

Edwards converted to wide receiver after the Panthers traded up to take him in the third round of the 2010 Draft. They cut him last year, and he had a short stint with the Browns.

The Bears kept his old Panthers teammate Jimmy Clausen, but there wasn’t enough room for him on the 53-man roster.

Just like there weren’t enough Wolverines to stop him in 2007.

    Probably not a big surprise to him after Jordan Lynch got more reps (at RB) than he did last night.

    From what I’ve seen, the Bears actually need to get down to 48 or so, clean out the bottom few spots of their current roster, i.e., their special teamers — who are awful — and backfill from there.

    Good luck AE, hopefully you’ll catch on somewhere else.

    Your playoff game against Richmond was by FAR the greatest performance I have ever seen on a football field.

    Just to clarify about that greatest qb performance ever: Rushed for 313 yards and four touchdowns and threw for 182 yards and three more scores.

    Edwards should have gotten a chance to QB in the nfl. Definitely better than clausen!

    He is one of the most underrated players in the league. a good offensive coordinator could do a lot for his career
