Terrence Edwards announces retirement

Winnipeg, MB (SportsNetwork.com) - Terrence Edwards has decided to hang up his cleats.

"I've had a great run in this league, and made countless friends and memories I will forever cherish," said Edwards. "This city and the Blue Bomber organization have been so good to my family and me, and I just cannot thank them enough for everything they have done. Also, I would really like to acknowledge and thank the fans of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The support we get as players is amazing, and that is one of the best things I will take away from my time in Winnipeg."
