All Things Philly Sports:
According to Adam Schefter, the Eagles have signed QB Trent Edwards to a one year contract. Edwards, who has played for the Bills and Jaguars, was cut right before the beginning of the 2011 season by the Raiders and didn't take a snap all season long. His most significant playing time came in 2008 when he started 14 games for Buffalo.
What is the significance of the Eagles signing a quarterback who didn't even play last year? Well, with Mike Vick locked in as the starter and Mike Kafka locked in as the quarterback of the future, Edwards figures to compete for the veteran backup role. Given that his skills fit the Eagles offense much better than the 2011 backup, Vince Young, this signing could be a signal that Young won't be brought back this season. If that's the case, so long Young and thanks so much for all the "Dream Team" crap.
