Eagles Sign Trent Edwards to One-Year Deal

As general manager Howie Roseman suggested would happen earlier today, the Eagles and free agent quarterback Trent Edwards agreed to a one-year contract, according to an NFL source.

Adam Schefter of ESPN first reported the news. The Eagles later made the signing official.

The 28-year-old Edwards, who did not play in the NFL last season, will not be handed the backup quarterback spot to Michael Vick and will likely have to compete to make the roster. The Eagles still have Vince Young and Mike Kafka under contract.
