In Jacksonville, Trent Edwards could become an alternative to starter to David Garrard.
The other team that claimed Edwards partially did it for other reasons.
“The obvious thing would be we were going to pick his brain. Absolutely, that would be true,” Jets coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday when asked why he wanted Edwards.
Honesty is awesome.
“The other thing is, I think the young
man can play. I think he’s a good quarterback and we always look at every
opportunity to make our team better,” Ryan said.
Ryan interestingly said he asked Kellen Clemens’ for the No. 3 quarterback’s blessing before making the claim. Clemens was all for it, which indicates Edwards would have been the No. 4 guy in New York, and probably not for long.
