Bucs Sign Cornerback Mario Edwards
Ronde Barber and Brian Kelly will be the starters when camp opens this summer. Fans remember last year when Kelly went down and Tim Wansley had a difficult time filling his shoes. Edwards would be better suited to handle this duty if the need arises. If the squad stays healthy Wansley and Edwards will split time as the nickel back and spelling the starters during those scorching early season games.
Edwards was a sixth round pick out of Florida State in 2000. Seminole fans will remember him from the back-to back national championship games he played in 1998-99.
The Bucs need team players. When athletes buy into a defensive system they play as a unit, not individuals. The 2002 defense did that and saw huge dividends. Edwards wants to be a team player. He said, "Tampa Bay has established itself as one of the league's elite defensive units and I can't wait to be a part of it." Music to Bucs' fans' ears.
