Edwards became Derek Adams’ third summer signing of 2017, as he prepared for Argyle's return to the third tier. The Liverpool-born centre-back moved to Home Park after compensation was agreed with Morecambe according to the under-24 transfer rules.
Edwards began his career at Blackburn Rovers, coming through their youth system and captaining the side that won the 2011–12 FA Youth Cup. Whilst at Ewood Park he had five loan spells: at Rochdale in the first half of the 2012-13 season (29 games), Fleetwood Town for a month later that season (9 games), Chesterfield for three months at the start of the following season (7 games), just one game for Tranmere Rovers later in the year and finally Morecambe in the last 6 weeks of the 2013-14 campaign (9 games). He then became one of 16 players released by Blackburn on his return to Ewood Park.
Having impressing during his loan spell at the Globe Arena, Edwards became a Shrimp on a full contract basis in May 2014. Over the next three seasons he added 127 games and three more goals to his Morecambe tally, and won the Supporters' Player of the Year and Players' Player of the Year awards at the end of the 2016-17 season. The 23-year-old was naturally offered a new contract but he declined and instead chose Home Park.
