Bills release QB Trent Edwards

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.

  1. Fitzpatrick looked good in this game. He was quick to make decisions and helped them score points on offense and move the chains. Although they lost, I expect Fitzpatrick to hold off Brohm in the foreseeable future. Not sure if Edwards catches on with another team.
