Dwan Edwards – Signed by the Bills in 2010
Defensive lineman Dwan Edwards was a member of the Baltimore Ravens from 2003 to 2009, although he did miss the entire 2008 season with back surgery. In that time, he had a total of two sacks. Let’s repeat that – two.
Still, the Bills thought they saw something in Edwards, and signed him to an $18 million contract over four years. The defensive tackle stayed for two seasons, and at least improved his career sack total with 3.5 more tackles of quarterbacks. Buffalo had Marcell Dareus and Kyle Williams set to play Edwards’ position, and so Edwards was cut shortly before the 2011 season.
The Panthers picked him up a few weeks later, and he eventually moved into the starting lineup. He had six sacks for Carolina in 2011 alone. Edwards had an 11-year NFL career, but the Buffalo years were not worth remembering except for the reminder that sometime free-agent signings don’t work out well.
They still love him in Montana, at least:
