Tri-Cities Fever Sign Two Receivers for 2015 Season

Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, WA - The Tri-Cities Fever announced Monday the signing of two wide receivers for the 2015 season, Michael Edwards (5’11”, 200 lbs.) from UTEP, and Harry Peoples (6’0”, 185 lbs.) who played last year as a rookie for the Fever.

Wide receiver was a position hard hit by injuries last season, and with that in mind Coach Adam Shackleford has been hard at work recruiting some healthy new hands for the Fever in the 2015 season.

Former Cleveland Brown Michael Edwards is the latest addition to the receiving core. Edwards played 4 games for the Browns last season after joining the team as an undrafted free agent out of UTEP. Mike will be looking to get back to the NFL after honing his receiving skills with the Fever.  

In college, Edwards posted 101 receptions for 1,477 yards and 11 touchdowns in two seasons for the Miners. Prior to that, he played for Mt. San Antonio College where he earned All-California honors while leading his team to a National Championship in 2010. Edwards is from Glendora, CA and attended Glendora High where he was also a standout defensive back and center fielder on his high school squads.

Harry Peoples had an outstanding rookie season for Tri-Cities after being released by the Chicago Bears. In 13 games played for the Fever, Peoples ranked second on the team in receptions, hauling in 45 passes for 499 yards and 10 touchdowns.

In addition to receiving, Peoples was also the team’s most effective return man, leading the Fever with 394 return yards, a 20.7 yard average, also a team high. Peoples also subbed in at running back for an injured Keithon Flemming and scored a couple rushing touchdowns, proving his versatility to the Fever offense.

“We are extremely excited about both our receiver signings today. Harry Peoples was one of the best rookies in the league last year. And Mike Edwards displays talent that can change a game quickly," Shackleford said.
