In an offseason filled with uncertainty for the Eagles, one thing seems almost certain–Vince Young won’t be back with the team in 2012. As such, Andy Reid needs to find a viable backup to compete with Mike Kafka
if when Michael Vick goes down.
Enter Trent Edwards, the former third round pick out of Stanford who toiled in Buffalo and Jacksonville before spending 2011 out of football. The 29-year-old Edwards has thrown 26 touchdown passes and 30 interceptions over parts of four seasons.
Edwards possesses good size (6-4, 231) and has started 33 NFL games, completing over 60 percent of his passes in the process, but has never legitimized himself as a pro quarterback. Of course, playing with teams like the Jags and Bills may not have helped his cause.
According to RotoWorld, Chad Henne, Jason Campbell, Kyle Orton, David Garrard, Shaun Hill, Byron Leftwich, Sage Rosenfels, Brady Quinn, Drew Stanton, Donovan McNabb, Rex Grossman, Dennis Dixon, Charlie Batch, J.P. Losman, Dan Orlovsky, A.J. Feeley and Jeff Garcia are all scheduled to be unrestricted free agents this offseason. I wouldn’t be surprised if one of the names on this list ends up in Philadelphia next year taking snaps in the three to four games Vick will inevitably miss.
