Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star is reporting that the Panthers have signed Kansas City Chiefs NT Ron Edwards to a three-year contract.
Patrick Allen here, FanSided’s NFL Site Director and editor of Arrowhead Addict. Dropped by to let you guys know you got a good football player in Edwards. He isn’t great and he is getting up there in age but he is tough as nails and is pretty good against the run. He is a natural DT in a 4-3 defense but can also play the nose.
The most important thing, is that I pass something along to you. The guys over at AA insisted that you be told Ron’s nickname. The Chiefs stunk for a few years there (know you guys know about that) and part of what helped us entertain ourselves was by giving our players nicknames. It is something of a tradition at AA. Anyway, Ron had one of the best nicknames, in my opinion, we’ve ever had.
“Sweet” Ron Edwards.
So be good to Sweet Ron Panthers fans. And Sweet Ron will be good to you.
