The Chicago Bears will start the season with just two quarterbacks on their roster.
On Friday the Bears released veteran Trent Edwards. The release of Edwards means that Josh McCown will be left to shoulder the burden in the event of an injury to starter Jay Cutler.

Chicago’s season will rest on the arm of Cutler who is entering the last year of his contract.
Edwards appeared in one game last season going 2-for-2 with the Eagles for 14 yards. He did not play in 2011.
