Minnesota will be without one of its linebackers this fall as Lamonte Edwards has been kicked off the team, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
Officially, Edwards has been given the boot for violating team rules, but the Tribune writes that “Edwards was arrested after an iPhone was stolen from a weight room in a Gophers athletics building on June 18. Tracking software led police to Edwards, who first said the phone belonged to his cousin. When questioned later by U of M Police, he admitted he stole the phone from the weight room, according to the warrant.”
In 11 games as a sophomore in 2012, and in one start, Edwards recorded eight tackles.
