1977 Profile: Emmett Edwards

Wide Receiver
No. 86
"Emmett appeared in six games in 1976, starting one. He caught just two passes, but his first was a diving grab of a 46-yard Joe Ferguson bomb against Kansas City. He came to the Bills in a trade with the Houston Oilers on September 28. Edwards was a second round choice of the Oilers in the 1975 draft and caught two passes as a rookie.
He was the all-time leading receiver at Kansas with 105 catches for 1,808 yards and eight touchdowns for a 16.7 average. Edwards led the Big Eight in receiving in both 1973 and 1974. He also ran on Kansas' NCAA Champion 440-relay team."
