Shared by Edwards himself, on his LinkedIn page. One of the best players in the Indoor Football League in 2022, Edwards reminds me a lot of DeAndre Johnson, do it makes sense that the Generals QB Coach is working with Edwards. He’s a very electric run threat, who can still beat you with his arm.
Edwards also attended the XFL showcases and put up good numbers. As seen at the link below. It’s very clear Edwards is doing everything he can to get back to the outdoor game.
After 2 seasons split between the IFL, and FCF Edwards has proven his abilities, while continuing to develop as a passer. His relative lack of size has held him back at 6’0 205 lbs. However with more and more players making it at the NFL level that stand below 6’2, the opportunities for men like Edwards are only increasing
In the 2022 IFL season Edwards led his team to a 15-3 record falling short in the playoffs. His stat line was impressive. Ranking in the top five amongst starting quarterbacks in nearly every important ranking. He also managed to seize the job from Blake Sims who has since retired.
With 182 attempts, Edwards completed over 68% of his passes. He racked up 1,481 yards 26 tds, to just 5 ints placing him at a 178.1 good for third among starting quarterbacks. On the ground he added 126 carries for 759 yards and 28 touchdowns. A 6.0 yard per carry average.
Edwards has already resigned with the Fighters for the 2023 season but this contract doesn’t stop him from pursuing outdoor opportunities. In fact the IFL as a league loves to promote their players, and help them get to the next level. That is part of why the IFL is one of, if not the biggest talent pool for the USFL, and XFL to tap in building their leagues.
