The Dragons boss was keen to retain Edwards' services, but was unable to stretch his budget to match the former Swindon Town ace's demands.
"It's disappointing that we haven't been able to reach an agreement with Paul, but I have my budget and I must stick to it," said Smith to the club's official website.
"These things always come down to money, rather then anything else, and it's a choice only Paul can make.
"We now move on and I'm looking to bring in another two players in the near future."
