ATLANTA (WMBF) - One of the Grand Strand’s own in the NFL is heading closer to home.

The Atlanta Falcons announced Friday that they agreed to a trade with the Las Vegas Raiders involving Conway native Bryan Edwards. The Raiders received a fifth-round pick in next year’s draft for Edwards and a 2023 seventh-round pick.

The trade was first reported by Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Edwards was drafted in the third round by the Raiders in 2020, tallying up 571 yards and three touchdowns in 2021. He also started just over half of his 28 total games played in Las Vegas.

The wideout was a standout at Conway High School before heading to South Carolina, where he became the Gamecocks’ all-time career leader in receptions, receiving yards and consecutive games with a catch.

Edwards also notably played alongside fellow Horry County native Hunter Renfrow as part of the Raiders receiving corps.
