The Philadelphia Eagles signed former Buffalo Bills quarterback Trent Edwards this offseason, despite the fact that he did not play in the NFL at all in 2011.
So it’s not surprising that there was a little bit of rust for Edwards last week at the Eagles first set of OTAs this offseason. But it seemed that there was more than just a little. Edwards’ performance was alarmingly bad.
The Courier Posts’s Geoff Mosher said that Mike Kafka was running off with the backup quarterback competition. CSNPhilly’s Reuben Frank put it bluntly:
“OK, let’s be honest. Trent Edwards looked awful last week.”
Frank and others have said that Edwards is looking markedly better this week. But is he running out of time?

How long does he think it will take for him to acclimate to the Eagles’ offense?
“I don’t have a timetable for you. There ar...

The Eagles led the NFL with 50 sacks last year. Then they spent the offseason trying to make their defensive line even better.
Take last year's NFL-best group and add rookie Fletcher Cox, a first-round tackle from Mississippi State, second-round pick Vinny Curry, a tackle from Marshall, and then add yet another tackle, Antonio Dixon, who missed all of last year with an injury...
Eagles coach Andy Reid has continually harped on the benefit for his young team of having a full offseason of field and classroom work this spring compared to last year when a 4 1/2-month lockout prevented rookies from even getting a peek at their playbook until the start of training camp. Yet, one of their most important teachers -- offensive line coach Howard Mudd -- was nowhere...
