The Jacksonville Jaguars will reportedly sign defensive end Mario Edwards, in accordance with ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

Edwards was released by the Chicago Bears the other day despite 2 yrs remaining on his initial three-year contract. He appeared in 12 games last season, tallying just eight tackles and two sacks.

The 28-year-old has 16.5 career sacks across seven NFL seasons with the Bears, SAINTS, GAMBLING and Raiders.

Edwards was suspended for the initial two games this past year for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs. A lawsuit filed last October also accused Edwards of “assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress” from an instead that occurred at the team hotel, though it was later dismissed.

The NFL investigated and determined never to suspend him beneath the personal-conduct policy.

Edwards will now get yourself a fresh focus on the Jaguars, a defense that had tied for the fifth-fewest sacks in the NFL last season. The squad finished 3-14 while ranking 28th in points allowed throughout a miserable 2021 campaign, mostly under Urban Meyer.

New head coach Doug Pederson is seeking to turn things around in 2022, and Edwards will join a pass-rush that also contains Josh Allen, Dawuane Smoot and former Bears teammate Roy Robertson-Harris.
