Report: Bills shopping Trent Edwards
By Tim Graham
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Buffalo Bills want to trade quarterback Trent Edwards.
Schefter, citing an unnamed source, wrote the Bills have spoken to at least one other team about Edwards, who lost his starting job to Ryan Fitzpatrick after two games.
A trade would benefit all parties -- the club, the player and the fans.
The Bills have given Edwards several chances since they drafted him in the third round in 2007. It just hasn't worked out under the constraints the organization presents. Buffalo icon Jim Kelly publicly suggested last winter the Bills part ways with Edwards.
Edwards could use a change of scenery. He hasn't had much of an offensive line in Buffalo, and he has worked with myriad offensive coordinators in his four years.
Maybe the two weeks before the 2009 season opener sums up the chaotic working conditions best. The Bills fired offensive coordinator Turk Schonert and replaced him with play-calling novice Alex Van Pelt 10 days before the season started. A few days later, the Bills cut their most experienced offensive lineman, tackle Langston Walker.
