Raiders sign QB Edwards

The Raiders agreed to terms with veteran quarterback Trent Edwards on Saturday, according to Rep1 Sports, the firm that represents Edwards.

Edwards, 27, finished last season with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He is a five-year veteran with 33 starts. He joins a quarterback corps that includes Jason Campbell, Kyle Boller and Jordan La Secla.

Edwards’ last game against the Raiders came in 2008, when he rallied the Buffalo Bills from a 16-7 fourth-quarter deficit. He completed 14 of 19 for 182 yards and one touchdown on Buffalo’s final three scoring drives in the Bills 24-23 victory.

Sounds as if this means the end for Charlie Frye with the Raiders unless someone gets hurt or cut.
