The 22-year-old was offered a new contract at The County Ground, but the Manchester-born youngster has decided to head back towards his native North West.
The winger has penned a 12-month deal and will be hopeful of impressing for The Red Dragons.
"I'm very happy to be here," said Edwards.
"I have had a good look around, it seems a great place to play football and the manager has been very straight with me.
"I don't know Jim Whitley that well, but I was a youngster at Maine Road with his brother Jeff, so there is a little bit of a connection there.
"I didn't play in either game against Wrexham last season, due to injury the second time, but I know a little bit about the club and the players here, which all gives me hope for the coming season.
"Playing in the Third Division doesn't worry me, as I've been around non-league football for some time, I'm just looking forward to next season and helping Wrexham to a more successful year."
