The Patriots have been awarded linebacker A.J. Edds off of waivers, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.

Edds was cut by the Miami Dolphins on Monday after one season. The Dolphins drafted Edds in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft out of Iowa, but he did not play last season due to a torn ACL suffered the first week of training camp.

He is 6-foot-4, 246 pounds and in one preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons this year he had seven tackles and one sack.
