BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - The Buffalo Bills announced Monday that they have released QB Trent Edwards, who has made 32 starts for the team over the past four seasons.
Reports had surfaced over the weekend that the team was shopping Edwards around for a potential trade.
Edwards won the starting job coming out of training camp but was benched last Monday following two ineffective outings, both of which resulted in losses.
The former third round pick out of Stanford leaves the Bills after going 14-18 as a starter, throwing for 25 touchdowns and 27 interceptions, and totaling just over 5,000 yards.
"Those kinds of decisions are never easy. He (Edwards) gave us everything he had, we just felt like we were not going to go back [in] that direction," said Head Coach Chan Gailey Monday at Bills media day.
Gailey says the team has not made a decision on whether they will bring in another quarterback, however the team says that the desire to see more of Brian Brohm did play in to the decision. Brohm will be the second-string QB moving forward.
