Wide receiver: 2007-13

Division All-Star: 2007, 2010, 2011
Bombers Most Outstanding Player – 2010
The Montreal Alouettes cut Edwards adrift in late May of 2007 and the Bombers were eager to scoop him up, where he joined former Montreal assistant coach-turned Bomber head coach Doug Berry.
It turned out to be more than just a shrewd move.
Edwards, the University of Georgia’s all-time receiving yardage leader, was transformed given playing time with the Bombers, cranking out five 1,000-yard seasons over six years – he had 818 yards in 16 games in 2009 – while twice being named a CFL All-Star and three times a divisional all-star. He retired as the Bombers fourth all-time leading receiver with 469 receptions for 7,200 yards, behind only Milt Stegall (15,153), James Murphy (9,036) and Joe Poplawski (8,341). His 46 career TDs ranks just outside the club’s Top 10.
