Oakland Raiders sign Trent Edwards to future contract

The Oakland Raiders will be looking to find some consistency at the quarterback position during the offseason and they are off to an early start. The team recently announced that they have agreed to sign journeyman quarterback Trent Edwards to a reserve/future contract and he will provide some competition during camp.

Edwards had previously spent time with the Raiders back in 2011, but he was beat out for the back up job to Carson Palmer by Kyle Boller. He was released as a result.

Since being released by the Raiders, Edwards has spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears.

Last season, Edwards was released by Chicago in the final cuts of the preseason and he never resurfaced on a roster for the remainder of the year. Now, he will get another shot at finding a home in the Bay Area.

In his career, Edwards has thrown for 6,033 yards with 26 touchdowns and 30 interceptions.

He has previously started games for the Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars and Philadelphia Eagles.
