CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Defensive tackle Dwan Edwards, who grew up in Columbus, has re-signed for another year with the NFL's Carolina Panthers, according to the Charlotte Observer newspaper.

Terms of the deal with Carolina were not disclosed.

The Observer's story, quoting two league sources, said that Edwards agreed on a deal with the Panthers that would keep him with the team for at least the 2013 season.

The 6-foot-3, 300-pound Edwards, a nine-year veteran, was acquired by the Panthers before the start of the 2012 season after being cut by the Buffalo Bills. He finished third on the team in sacks this past season with six in 13 starts.

The Observer said that Edwards, who will turn 32 in May, was in Miami on Thursday and Friday visiting with the Dolphins.

The newspaper reported that the Panthers offered Edwards a one-year, $1.5 million deal at the start of free agency, which he rejected.

Edwards told the team he was looking for a longer, more lucrative deal rather than one that matches the contract he received when he first joined Carolina.
