Mario Edwards Jr. Medically Cleared

Breaking News: Edwards’ Neck Ready to Go


Per his personal Instagram account, second year defensive player Mario Edwards Jr. has been medically cleared to resume football activity. A promising and versatile defender, Edwards will be an important part of a unit looking to make big strides in 2016-17.

Edwards became a starter after a Justin Tuck injury early last season and improved week-to-week. He figures to start at Defensive End in 3-4 packages and can kick inside on obvious passing downs. His medical clearance is a huge boon for a Raiders team looking to make strides in a wide-open AFC West.
