Philadelphia Eagles Sign Former Buffalo Bills QB Trent Edwards to 1-Year Contract

The Philadelphia Eagles signed quarterback Trent Edwards to a one-year contract. Edwards played for the Buffalo Bills (2007-2010) and Jacksonville Jaguars (2010) and spent training camp in 2011 with the Oakland Raiders.

Edwards, 28, will compete with 2010 fourth round draft pick Mike Kafka for the backup quarterback role. The loser will probably be the third quarterback.

Throughout his career, Edwards has started 33 games, winning 14 and losing 19. He has thrown 26 touchdowns against 30 interceptions, with a passer rating of 75.4.

But he has played for some bad teams and his only decent receiving target was Lee Evans. He’s a smart quarterback (he went to Stanford), he fits the system well, and the Eagles think he can be a suitable backup in 2012.

Honestly I’m not a Trent Edwards fan. He’s a 28-year old who hasn’t played in over a year and didn’t have success when he did play. Let’s just hope that Vick doesn’t get injured next year.
