Bills Appear Set on Sticking w/ Edwards at QB for 2009

It looks as if the Bills are going to stay with Trent Edwards as their QB of the future. The latest Pro Football Weekly says that the team is going to make a stand with him as their starting QB for the 2009 season:

Any inkling that the Bills are questioning their decision to keep Trent Edwards as their clear-cut starting quarterback was quashed at the Combine with coach Dick Jauron’s effusive praise. “He got bigger and stronger last year over the previous year, (and) I think he’ll do the same this year,” Jauron said of his third-year quarterback, who struggled during the second half of the 2008 season. “He knows significantly more than last year. I’m very optimistic, almost entirely because the man has talent, he’s a good guy and he works at it.”

Edwards started 2008 fast, but was never the same after the concussion he suffered in Arizona October 5th. He threw for 2699 yards with 11 TD’s and 10 picks. I would think the Bills would take a hard look at a vet in the free agent market to make sure if Edwards struggles they have somewhere to turn. Dick Jauron could be sinking or swimming with Edwards in the 2009 season.
