Bills quarterback Trent Edwards will have to win a training camp competition if he wants to be the starter in Buffalo this season.
But he says he gained confidence when he found out he wouldn’t have a rookie first-round draft pick in the competition with him.
“Was I happy to see that we didn’t draft a first round quarterback? Yes,” Edwards said on XX Sports Radio in San Diego, per Sports Radio Interviews. “That is a boost of confidence, yes.”
Edwards, who will compete with Brian Brohm and Ryan Fitzpatrick, was already feeling confident before the draft. But now that he knows Brohm and Fitzpatrick are the only guys he’ll have to compete with, his confidence has grown.
