The Trent Edwards Era is over in Buffalo. The Bills today announced they have released the struggling QB, this after the team has gotten off to an 0-3 start, two games in which Edwards was the starter.
Edwards was 29-of-52 pass attempts for 241 yards with a touchdown and pair interceptions for a 58.3 passer rating as the Bills on offense were awful in two losses with him.
Bills head coach Chan Gailey replaced Edwards with Ryan Fitzpatrick for Sunday’s 38-30 loss to the Patriots. The offense was much better despite the 8-point setback.
A 2007 third-round pick (92nd overall) out of Stanford, Edwards (6-4, 231) has started 32 of his 34 NFL games, completing 60.9% of his 878 pass attempts for 5,739 yards, with 25 touchdowns and 27 interceptions for a career passer rating of 76.8.
Edwards turns 27 on October 30, and had been earning a $1.65 million base salary in the final year of his rookie contract.
