Eagles part ways with Trent Edwards

The Eagles finally have reduced, not expanded, their quarterback depth chart.

Gone is veteran Trent Edwards, the Eagles announced late Monday afternoon.

The move reduces the Eagles’ roster to four quarterbacks:  Mike Vick, Nick Foles, Dennis Dixon and G.J. Kinne.

A third-round pick in the disastrous quarterback class of 2007, Edwards spent three-plus seasons in Buffalo.  Cut during the 2010 season, he landed in Jacksonville.  Out of football in 2011, Edwards joined the Eagles last season, appearing in one game.

The Eagles have said that the starting job will be determined via an open competition.  It’s unclear whether they’ll add another quarterback via the draft.

    He had a mediocre career at best and obviously he does he fit Chip’s system, but he was a team player and a great mentor to Foles. He definitely deserved the roster spot over Kafka and was a solid back up. Since he is getting older and was out of football for more than a year before the Eagles signed him, I’m not sure if he’ll find another team to play for. However, I wish him the best and hopefully he’ll get another shot this off season.

    Edwards still had a job in the NFL? Now, THAT’S news!

    They’ll add EJ Maunel in the 2nd round. Why else would he have been invited to attend. He goes from being a late invite to the Senior Bowl and late round pick to possible 2nd rounder and the Ducks new starting QB amazing. I mean Eagles keep doing that. Quack Quack

    Unlike black quarterbacks, he’ll get 5 or 6 more chances and will be in a roster by Friday. PFT. Will be posting about all the teams he’ll be visiting by tomorrow. Unlike Young, Russell, McNabb, and Culpepper, who were discarded at the first sign of trouble and forgotten about.

    Culpepper received multiple shots. Even after he blew out his knee.

    McNabb had multiple shots after Philly. No one discarded Donovan because of trouble, McNabb was traded once it was obvious he was not the same player.

    Young also had multiple shots after he actually quit on Fisher & the Titans. He had chances to start in Philly & Buffalo before everyone coming to the conclusion Tennessee did, he wasn’t a great pro QB.

    Russell wasted his talent was so disinterested & unmotivated after he got paid it was disgusting. He gained loads of weight & didn’t even try.

    And maybe the guy that most of all has been given the benefit of the doubt, Mike Vick blew up the Falcons then blew up the Eagles. He has never lived up to the hype and has received chance after chance after chance.

    Stop the black/white QB madness. What you have said is simply not true & meant to race bait. Play that BS card somewhere else.

    Similar to another Stanford quarterback, Jim Plunkett, he went to a team with a horrible offensive line and almost got himself killed trying to play quarterback there. Maybe he salvageable like Plunkett was, and maybe not. He had all the tools once, but maybe all those horrible hits have wrecked him. He’s a bright guy, he probably has a future in coaching if he wants it.

    Really? You have to make it a race thing??

    Yeah, we projected to Coach Hailey that Ryan will take over for Trent. (Could take over for Jake, but we like Jake) Hope Vick has a big year, but if not, Foles is going to be a stud in the NFL. Good move getting Dixon to mix it up!

    Trent had a promising career until the concusion suffered in the Arizona Game. The hit was by Ari. Safety Adrian Wilson. He never recovered

    Screwed from the start. 2007, the year the Raiders the had the first pick in the draft and desperately needed a QB.

    for. real enough with the black QB bs people this league is not racist I would say about 2/3 of the players in the nfl are black just because there are more white QBs in the NFL that is just cowincedence seriously stop with the ignorant comments McNabb had 2 chances with other teams young the same thing he could not beat out the starters Russell flopped as a starter then said he wanted to much monedoes drugs and hasn’t been continually staying in shape drugs

    “Similar to another Stanford quarterback, Jim Plunkett…”
    Comparing Captain Checkdown to Jim Plunkett. Hilarious.
