Edwards told the Star Tribune that he has signed a two-fight contract and his four-round pro debut is set for May 20. It’s reported that Edwards is guaranteed $5,000 from the fight plus 50 percent of the gate proceeds for the fight at Grand Casino Hinckley. If the lockout continues into June, his second fight will take place that month under the same terms.

Edwards is the second NFL player to take up boxing during the lockout. Baltimore Ravens safety Tom Zbikowski also is boxing and has won his first two fights during the NFL’s work stoppage. His next bout is scheduled for April 23.
