Report: Trent Edwards Claimed by Jacksonville Jaguars


Trent Edwards has found a new home — one in which he may soon find himself in the midst of another "lesser of evils" quarterback controversy.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Jacksonville Jaguars have claimed Edwards, who was released by the Buffalo Bills Monday after losing the starting job to Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Jaguars starter David Garrard has struggled this season, and has never been able to repeat his 2007 form in which he threw 18 touchdowns with only three interceptions.

He was even benched for a period in Jacksonville's week two matchup against the Chargers for Luke McCown. After placing McCown on injured reserve after tearing a knee ligament late in Sunday's game, head coach Jack Del Rio gave Garrard a vague vote of confidence on Monday, saying "As long as he?s our best option, we?ll continue to go with him."

It's unclear whether or not Del Rio will still consider that to be true with Edwards on the roster. Jacksonville has also recently added quarterbacks Keith Null and Todd Bouman.

Edwards has a 76.8 rating with 25 touchdowns and 27 interceptions over his four-year career.
