The 6-foot-4, 244-pounder played at Iowa, and was a fourth-round pick of Miami last year who spent all of 2010 on injured reserve after tearing his the ACL in his right knee training camp. The 23-year-old Edds led the Dolphins in tackles this preseason with 18 (with one sack), and could also serve as a long snapper in a pinch.
