Bryan Edwards Recovered and “Ready to Go” for Raiders Training Camp

Arguably the best value pick in the Raiders’ 2020 draft was third-round wide receiver Bryan Edwards.

Edwards left the University of South Carolina as the school’s all-time leader in receptions (234), receiving yards (3,045), consecutive games with a reception (48), and is second on their all-time list in receiving touchdowns (22). Not bad considering the list of receivers to play for South Carolina includes Sterling Sharpe, Sidney Rice, Alshon Jeffery, Troy Williamson, and Deebo Samuel.

The Raiders reportedly had a first-round grade on Edwards prior to his foot injury in February and still had a second-round grade on him going into the draft. Now, according to league insider Adam Caplin, Edwards is recovered from his foot injury and is apparently expected to be at full strength when training camp begins.

On #Raiders rookie Bryan Edwards: He has recovered from the broken foot that he suffered in Feb while working out for the combine + is ready to go. He’ll line up in camp behind Tyrell Williams, but could start in 2021. The gtd money in the Williams contract expires after 2020.

Given what the Raiders are paying Tyrell Williams, it wouldn’t be a surprise to the Raiders try to replace Willians with Edwards in the not-too-distant future. Williams has a salary cap number of more than $11 million in each of the next three years so it’ll take a very good year from him to justify the cost of keeping him beyond the 2020 season.

For anyone who hasn’t seen Edwards’ college highlights, here are a few worth watching…
