Originally selected in the third round of the 2021 draft by the Las Vegas Raiders, Edwards finished his second season with 45 catches for 764 receiving yards and four touchdowns. The 23-year-old is the starter favorite against London on the outside.

Raiders tight end Darren Waller had some nice things to say about his former teammate during an interview with heavy.com:

The fact that the Raiders traded Edwards had less to do with his level of talent than with the team’s stagnation at wide receiver. Las Vegas was traded for former All-Pro Packers WR Davante Adams, and Edwards would have had a significantly smaller role this season.

Edwards, London and year two tight end Kyle Pitts Have your team of three primary pass catchers be at least 6’3″.
