Raiders signed QB Trent Edwards, DL David Carter and DT Torell Troup to reserve/future contracts.
The signing says as much about the state of Edwards' career as it does the Raiders' roster. Released by the Bears in training camp, Edwards has attempted just two passes over the past three seasons. We would say there's no chance he earns a roster spot next summer, but anything is possible for a team that signed OT Alex Barron in 2013. Thu, Jan 2, 2014 05:04:00 PM

Free agent QBs Trent Edwards and Mike Kafka worked out for the Falcons.

The Falcons lost No. 2 quarterback Dominique Davis to injury in Sunday's blowout loss to the Bucs. Edwards was part of the Bears' final cuts this summer, while Kafka spent training camp and preseason with the Jaguars.

Free agent Trent Edwards worked out for the Raiders on Tuesday.

Edwards is part of the Raiders' search for a better backup. The seventh-year pro has attempted just two passes since the end of the 2010 season.

Bears released QB Trent Edwards.

The journeyman veteran lasted 12 days on the roster. It means the Bears are going with just Josh McCown behind Jay Cutler at quarterback. It's a dangerous strategy considering Cutler's injury history, but Edwards would have been a waste of a roster spot. He's a sub-replacement level NFL quarterback.

Bears signed QB Trent Edwards and waived WR Jerrell Jackson.

Jackson is a former UDFA out of Missouri. Edwards has been bouncing around the NFL since once being regarded as the Bills' quarterback of the future. Now 29 years old, Edwards is just a practice arm for the rest of Bears camp.
Sun, Aug 18, 2013 02:12:00 PM

Free agents Trent Edwards and Jordan Palmer are joining JaMarcus Russell for Friday's workout with the Bears.

Russell has always had an impressive arm, but it will look like a missile launcher next to these two. Edwards beat out Mike Kafka for the Eagles' No. 3 job last year, but was released in April. Carson's little brother was on the street last season until Blaine Gabbert's injury led to a chance in Jacksonville.

ESPN New York reports the Jets haven't "slammed the door shut" on adding another quarterback to replace David Garrard.

The free-agent market is barren, but one name that sticks out is Trent Edwards. Edwards was with new Jets OC Marty Mornhinweg in Philadelphia last season. Including the preseason, the 29-year-old completed over 68 percent of his passes and threw for four touchdowns. Edwards wouldn't be an option to start, but he knows the offense and could hold the clipboard for Geno Smith if the Jets are intent on dumping Mark Sanchez.

Eagles released QB Trent Edwards.

Edwards, 29, won the Eagles' No. 3 quarterback job last year after a fine preseason performance that saw him complete 67.5 percent of his passes for 489 yards and four touchdowns. Edwards has a career 75.5 quarterback rating over the course of six regular seasons, completing 60.6 percent of his passes for 6,033 yards, 26 scores, and 30 interceptions.

Eagles signed QB Trent Edwards to a one-year contract extension.

He’s now signed through 2013. Edwards beat out Mike Kafka for No. 3 duties with an unexpectedly strong preseason, completing 67.5 percent of his passes for 489 yards and four touchdowns. He's behind Michael Vick and Nick Foles.
Wed, Sep 5, 2012 05:37:00 PM

Trent Edwards has won the No. 3 quarterback job.

Mike Kafka opened training camp as the backup and ended it as a fourth-stringer on the trading block. Edwards won the job by completing 68 percent of his preseason passes and compiling a 100.5 passer rating. The Eagles will roll with three quarterbacks in part thanks to Michael Vick's recent injury woes.
Fri, Aug 31, 2012 03:44:00 PM

Trent Edwards completed 22-of-32 passes for 197 yards and a touchdown to close out an impressive preseason against the Jets.

It's not like the Eagles to give up on any future trade value that Mike Kafka may possess, but Edwards has earned a roster spot. The veteran has completed 54-of-80 preseason passes (68 percent) for 489 yards and a 100.5 passer rating. Of his 18 preseason possessions, 12 ended in a score or a field-goal attempt. If Edwards doesn't make the team, it's not because of anything that happened on the field in August.

Trent Edwards had his mechanics adjusted this offseason to fit the Eagles' scheme.

Edwards struggled badly with the change, often missing throws in offense-only drills. He'll enter camp behind Mike Kafka and rookie Nick Foles. We wouldn't expect Edwards to crack the final roster.
Fri, Jul 6, 2012 11:42:00 AM

According to the Courier-Post, Mike Kafka is "running away" with the Eagles' backup quarterback competition.

Per beat writer Geoff Mosher, Trent Edwards has struggled to make good throws "even in offense-only drills with no defense to obstruct him." Kafka, meanwhile, is said to be sporting a stronger arm after spending the offseason bulking up. With rookie Nick Foles locked in as the Eagles' No. 3 signal caller, Edwards might not last beyond the early days of camp.
Sat, May 26, 2012 10:45:00 AM

Eagles QB Trent Edwards has "bulked up" this offseason, adding at least 10 pounds of (presumably) muscle.

It's surely an effort on the injury prone former third-round pick's part to make himself more durable, but 10 pounds of muscle is not the only thing that's been standing between Edwards and greatness. Depending on what the Eagles do in the draft, Edwards will either push Mike Kafka to be Michael Vick's backup or third stringer.
Tue, Apr 17, 2012 12:01:00 PM

Eagles agreed to terms with QB Trent Edwards on a one-year contract.

Edwards was out of the league last season after being released by Oakland in early September. GM Howie Roseman indicated Thursday that the Eagles would add competition for Mike Kafka as the primary backup, though we suspect Edwards won't be the only option. The injury-prone former Bills starter shouldn't be guaranteed a roster spot.
