The Raiders have claimed defensive end Lavar Edwards off waivers, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport (on Twitter). Edwards was bumped off the Cowboys’ roster over the weekend.
Edwards, 25, appeared in four games for the Cowboys in 2014 and spent the bulk of the season on the taxi squad. In the year prior, he saw seven games with the Titans including one start. A product of powerhouse program LSU, Edwards was taken in the fifth round of the 2013 draft by Tennessee.
