Bills sign veteran S Mike Edwards

Mike Edwards Chiefs

The Buffalo Bills signed safety Mike Edwards, a two-time Super Bowl champion, to a one-year contract, the team announced Wednesday.

Contract terms were not disclosed.

Edwards said joining the Bills was the right choice for his career.

“The culture, the coaching staff, they sold me very well,” Edwards said. “(It’s) safety-friendly. The two guys they had were phenomenal over the past seven years. So, I felt like I could come in and take on that role and try to get better and try to improve every week.”

Edwards, 27, played last season for the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs, appearing in all 17 regular-season games and starting five. He totaled 51 tackles, one sack, five passes defensed, one interception and two fumble recoveries, including one returned for a touchdown. He made a season-high 11 tackles in a 20-17 loss to Buffalo on Dec. 10.

He started all four playoff games and collected 12 tackles and one interception. The Chiefs defeated the Bills 27-24 in the AFC Divisional Round but Edwards missed most of the game after sustaining a concussion in the first quarter.

Edwards won his other championship right in Super Bowl LV with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Edwards in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft. In four seasons with the Bucs, Edwards made 184 tackles, two sacks, seven interceptions with three returned for scores, and 26 passes defensed.

The Bills have been a postseason regular but have been unable to get over the hump.

“You can pick up on some things that you can translate over to the next team and try to give a little insight on what it takes to win the Super Bowl,” Edwards shared. “What it takes to get over the hump, what it takes to win those games week in and week out. … I have all the confidence in the world that we can do that and get to the Super Bowl and finally make it happen.”
