Gus Edwards is a professional football player. He plays as a running back for the Baltimore Ravens in the NFL.
Augustus Edwards was born in Monrovia, Liberia on April 13, 1995. His family immigrated to the United States when he was around five years old and settled in New York. He was raised mostly in Staten Island, New York. He attended Tottenville High School, where he was a standout football player. As a senior there, he helped take his team to the playoffs. He scored 11 touchdowns that season and had 868 yards. Coming out of high school he was rated as a three-star recruit and was considered to be the best fullback in the nation. He had offers from 11 colleges including Florida State University and Boston College, but eventually committed to the University of Miami.
As a freshman at the University of Miami, Edwards played running back and was on special teams. He played in 12 games that season. His first game was against Florida Atlantic University, where he had 22 yards in six carries. He also had stand-out games against Savannah State, the University of South Florida, and Duke University. He scored a touchdown in the Hurricane’s bowl game against Louisville. For the season he had 338 yards and five touchdowns.
The following year, 2014, he played in twelve games. He played a notable game against Cincinnati, where he had 85 yards and one touchdown. For the season, he had 349 yards and six touchdowns. In what should have been his third year playing for the Miami Hurricanes, he had a season-ending foot injury that occurred during camp. He was given a medical redshirt for the season.
In 2016, his redshirt junior year, he started in one of the 11 games that he played in. He had 106 yards in the season opener against Florida A&M, including a season-long 74-yard breakaway run, and scored a rushing touchdown. His only start came in the midseason, against Notre Dame. He also played in the Athletic Bowl victory over West Virginia, where he rushed ten times.
Edwards graduated from the University of Miami with a degree in Liberal Arts. He transferred to Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey as a postgraduate transfer. This meant that he would be immediately eligible, under NCAA rules, to play for the Scarlet Knights.
As a redshirt senior at Rutgers, he started in all twelve games that he played in. Edwards had standout games against Penn State and Michigan State University, as well as Perdue and Nebraska. For the season, he led the team in rushing yards and was named co-Most Valuable Player. He was also named Honorable Mention All-Big Ten.
Edwards was not invited to the NFL Combine after his collegiate career, but he did participate in the Rutgers University Pro Day. He ran a 4.52-second 40-yard dash and had 17 reps on the bench press. Edwards was not invited to the NFL Draft and he was not drafted.
In May of 2018, Edwards was signed as a free agent by the Baltimore Ravens. He had a decent showing at training camp, but failed to make the team and was waived in September. The day after he was waived, the Ravens retained him for their practice squad. He ended up being called up in October. He had 10 carries in his first professional game, which was against the Tennessee Titans. Edwards would record a 115-yard game against the Bengals later on in the season and a 118-yard game against the Oakland Raiders. He led the Ravens running backs with over 700 yards for the season. Among rookie running backs in the league, he ranked fifth for the season. He also played in his first postseason game, a wildcard game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
In 2019, he had two 100-yard games, one against the Houston Texans and the other against the Pittsburgh Steelers. For the year he had two touchdowns and 711 yards. He signed another one-year contract with the Ravens for the 2020 season. In 2020, he rushed for over 100 yards against the Cowboys and had 49 yards against the Cleveland Browns. For the 2020 season, he recorded six touchdowns and 723 yards.
During the offseason, Edwards signed a two-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens worth around 10 million dollars. During practice in early September 2021, he tore his ACL and was placed on the injured reserve list, ending his 2021 season.
Gus Edwards’ nickname is “Gus the Bus” because he runs over people like a bus on the football field. In November 2021, Gus Edwards filed a federal trademark application for “GUS THE BUS” for use on hats and athletic apparel like t-shirts, jackets, and hooded sweatshirts, as well as wristbands. The application also applied to conducting and organizing charitable benefits and entertainment and educational services related to football.
