The Philadelphia Eagles signed quarterback Trent Edwards to a one-year contract on Thursday – a move that likely signals backup Vince Young’s departure from the Eagles.
The team announced yesterday via its website that it had agreed to terms on a deal with 28-year-old Edwards, who presumably will compete with Mike Kafka to become the teams No. 1 backup quarterback behind Michael Vick.
“[Trent] has expressed a desire to be a part of our team,” Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said at the NFL Scouting Combine on Thursday. “He’s a guy that we liked and we saw him out there and we thought maybe he would be a good fit.”
No other details of the Edwards-Eagles deal were disclosed.
Fox Sports points out that Edwards, a third-round pick of the Bills in 2007, has 33 NFL starts to his credit, all but one with Buffalo. He has also spent time with the Jaguars and Raiders, who cut him prior to last season.
Over the course of his 4-year career Trent Edwards, is 14-19 with 6,019 passing yards, a 26-30 TD-INT ratio and a 75.4 passer rating.
