Edwards likes Dallas' defensive scheme

Defensive end Lavar Edwards, a fifth-round pick of the Tennessee Titans last season, is happy to be with the Dallas Cowboys because he believes he’ll fit better in the Cowboys’ 4-3 scheme than the Titans' 3-4 defense. The 6-foot-4, 277-pound Edwards had nine tackles in seven games as a rookie.
