As teams around the league part ways with players in advance of today’s 3pm cutdown deadline, the Cowboys have added to their roster, acquiring defensive end Lavar Edwards from the Titans in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick, according to Todd Archer of ESPN.com (via Twitter). Adam Schefter of ESPN adds (on Twitter) that it’s a 2015 draft pick.
Edwards, 24, was selected by Tennessee in the fourth round of the 2012 draft after playing his college ball at LSU. He played in seven games last season, starting one contest, and ultimately saw time on 153 snaps. Pro Football Focus’ advanced metrics (subscription required) graded Edwards as below-average, especially in terms of pass-rushing, where he finished with a -4.1 mark.
In Dallas, Edwards will act as depth along a defensive line that, save for a recovering Henry Melton, doesn’t have many stirring options.
