"Edwards became the Bills team leader on defense after coming over from San Francisco in a preseason trade. He played one game at tackle (at New England) before being moved to end. Earl is a fearsome pass rusher with excellent strength and speed.
Earl was a 49er for three seasons and was a starter in San Francisco in both 1971 and 1972. He played some offense as a 49er rookie and once caught a one-yard pass as a tight end. A fifth round draft choice of San Francisco in 1969, Earl was with Edmonton in the Canadian League for two years.
He played two years at Wichita where he was Sophomore Lineman of the Year. An All-Conference, All-Midwest and honorable mention All-America choice, Earl was credited with 15 unassisted tackles in a game against Drake University. He was a physical education and journalism major at Wichita."
