Dwan Edwards Returning to Carolina

Streeter Lecka

The Miami Dolphins hosted free agent defensive tackle over the past couple of days. However, it now appears Edwards will return to the Carolina Panthers rather than move on to his fourth team this year.

The Miami Dolphins hosted free agent defensive tackle Dwan Edwards on Thursday and Friday. However, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer now reports that Edwards will return to the Carolina Panthers for the 2013 season.

Edwards, who has also played for the Baltimore Ravens and the Buffalo Bills in his career, started 14 games last year for the Panthers, recording a career high six sacks as well as 52 tackles. Over his eight year career, Edwards has 11.5 sacks, two interceptions, three forced fumbles, one touchdown, and 280 tackles.

The Dolphins currently have two time Pro Bowler Randy Starks and one time Pro Bowler Paul Soliai at the defensive tackle position, so Edwards is likely returning to Carolina where he would have a chance to return to the starting lineup.

Miami will continue to shop this offseason, looking to upgrade a team that finished 2012 at 7-9 and in the playoff hunt in December. The team already signed wide receivers Mike Wallace and Brandon Gibson, linebackers Dannell Ellerbe and Philip Wheeler, and tight end Dustin Keller.
