Mario Edwards needed less than 24 hours to find a new home.

The defensive end has been claimed via waivers by the New York Giants, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported.

Edwards, a former second-round pick of the Raiders, was waived by Oakland on Saturday as part of the team's cut down to 53 players. Oakland shopped Edwards before the roster deadline, but couldn't strike a deal, Pelissero added.

In three seasons with the Raiders, Edwards recorded 5.5 sacks and 71 tackles. He missed nearly all of the 2016 season due to a hip injury.

So is Tanney gone or are they trading Webb?

I'm concerned about DL depth. Who is our backup NT, now that Rob Thomas has been waived? By my count, we have 5 DL.

I think they'll kick Tomlinson inside and have Wynn or Banks step in.

Josh Banks was waived. But to your point slide in Tomlinson and have Wynn fill in at DE, and now that I think of it, Mauro will be back after his 4 game suspension, so when he's back, that puts us back up to 6 DL, so I'm not as concerned.

Rob Thomas was nothing without Santana.

Rumor is this DE is fat and lazy.

 

All he has to do is fill in until week 5 when Josh Mauro comes back.

I don't know about lazy, he's put some great work against the run on film.

 

He's not a pass rusher, he'll be a better fit as a DE/DT tweener in a 3-4.
