Armanti Edwards lined up with the first team offense late at Carolina's final OTA late Thursday morning. He ran a go route down the left side. Checking him was cornerback Josh Norman.
The defense was in a cover two and the safety went inside. So it was just Edwards and Norman. Cam Newton lofted the ball high and Edwards leaped, snatched the ball out of the air and held on when he hit the ground.
Many fans don't expect Edwards to make the team. They didn't expect him to make it last season. Competition was added this offseason when the Panthers signed return man/receiver Ted Ginn Jr. in March and receiver Dominik Hixon in April.
How did Edwards react to the signings?
He says Carolina added more talent. He says the Panthers have added receivers every season he's been with the team.
How he does he react to the criticism?
Edwards says he doesn't hear it. He doesn't read the newspaper.
