Edawn Coughman

Via Danny Kelly at Field Gulls:

Coughman was draft eligible in the 2011 Draft out of Shaw University, went undrafted and played in the CFL with the Toronto Argonauts last season. He was released May 14 following gun possession charges in Montreal. According to the different reports I've read, SWAT teams stormed into his room after a maid reported seeing his gun on a table; the gun was bought legally in Georgia but Coughman claims he wasn't aware of the strength of gun laws in Quebec.

That is a bit scary. Could he be a WKG? Or was he just an average American out of country? I must say, I don't know the laws even out of state. But I do own plenty of guns and have them laying all over.

CTV Montreal reported that Coughman told a bail hearing he had bought the gun legally in Georgia and was unaware the law was different in Canada. He was released on bail after two days in jail.

He played in the 2010 Russell Athletic HBCU Bowl. He was a First Team All-CIAA selection in 2009. He has praticed at both OT and DT while with Seattle last year for mini camps. He made it to the 75 man cut down before he was released. He played the 2011 season with the Toronto Argonauts. He started midway through the season when he replaced an injured player. He was released after the gun charges and not brought back to camp. It was suggested he would have been the starter again for the 2012 season.

If this is any consideration, this was after he was named the starting LT for the Boatmen:

Coughman has been staying late after practice the past two days trying to build a rapport with the other linemen.

“The most important thing is to have good chemistry,” Coughman said. “Every day I’ve been trying to understand my assignment and understand everybody’s assignment so we can have chemistry.


It looks as though he has the right attitude. And he seems to have good measurables:

At the North Carolina State Pro Day last year, Coughman ran the 40-yard dash in 5.07 seconds and bench pressed 225 pounds 31 times.

He registered an 8-5 broad jump, a 25 1/2 inch vertical leap, a 7.86 three-cone drill and a 4.76 20-yard shuttle.


If he can stay on top of his game, work hard and remember he has a wife and two kids to care for, he could make it. Everyone gets a second chance, maybe Dallas is his.
