Dwan Edwards emerges as first Bills cut

By Tim Graham

The Turk has summoned at least one Buffalo Bills player so far today.

The Bills have cut defensive lineman Dwan Edwards, an NFL source told The Buffalo News. Edwards played deep into Thursday night's preseason finale in Detroit. That wasn't a good sign for a veteran entering his ninth NFL season.

Buffalo signed Edwards as a free agent two seasons ago, when they were transforming to a 3-4 defense. He was a defensive end in that scheme and started 24 games for the Bills.

Edwards seemed out of place at defensive tackle, as new coordinator Dave Wannstedt reverts back to a 4-3 base. Edwards also would have been an expensive backup to Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus. Edwards would have received a $4.1 million base salary this year.

Teams have until 9 tonight to reduce their rosters to 53 players.

More to come.
