Jaguars acquire QB Trent Edwards off waivers


After passing on the opportunity to draft a quarterback every year since 2003, the Jaguars finally decided to be proactive about fixing their problem.

The Buffalo Bills decided Monday to part ways with quarterback and former third-round pick Trent Edwards. Soon after the move was made, the Jacksonville Jaguars put in their waiver claim and they were awarded the former Stanford signal caller on Tuesday.

In four seasons with the Bills, Edwards won and lost the starting quarterback job three times. Edwards was named a team captain and started the Bills first two games this season before being sent to the bench by new head coach Chan Gailey.
