Panthers release DT Edwards

The Carolina Panthers released defensive tackle Ron Edwards on Friday.

Edwards signed with the Panthers as an unrestricted free agent in 2011. He suffered a torn right triceps at training camp that year and missed the entire season.

The Texas A&M product started the first 11 games of the 2012 season and recorded 14 tackles and one sack before a dislocated left elbow landed him on injured reserve.

"We appreciate the contributions that Ron has made to the Panthers the past two seasons," head coach Ron Rivera said. "He set a great example on and off the field for our young players, and we wish him well moving forward."

In 139 career games with the Bills (2001-2005), Chiefs (2006-2010) and Panthers, Edwards has 206 tackles and 16 1/2 sacks.
