Rumor: Cowboys Sign RB Gus Edwards as a Free Agent for the Ravens?

With a plethora of pending free agents, the Baltimore Ravens face the risk of losing valuable players this offseason, including running back Gus Edwards.

Despite a stellar 13-4 regular season and boasting the NFL’s top rushing attack, the Ravens may see Edwards depart, with the Dallas Cowboys potentially showing interest.

The Cowboys themselves are dealing with free agency concerns, particularly at the running back position. Tony Pollard, last season’s RB1, played under the franchise tag and is set to become a free agent again.

Additionally, Rico Dowdle, Dallas’ RB2, is also heading towards free agency, likely leaving both positions vacant. This creates an opportunity for Gus Edwards to fill the void.

While other notable running backs like Derrick Henry, Josh Jacobs, D’Andre Swift, Austin Eckeler, and Saquon Barkley may hit the market, their price tags are expected to be considerably higher than Edwards’.

Despite being overshadowed by bigger names, Edwards has demonstrated significant growth

and improvement, notably filling in admirably after J.K. Dobbins’ season-ending Achilles injury in Week 1,

amassing 810 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Known for his physical running style, Edwards could provide the Cowboys with the kind

of power back they’ve been missing since releasing Ezekiel Elliott. estimates Edwards’ market value

at around $4.5 million per year, a figure that fits within the budget of most NFL teams this offseason.
