Some Think Chiefs Will Put A Claim In On Former Bills QB Trent Edwards

The Buffalo Bills on Monday released QB Trent Edwards, a 2007 third round pick.

Since Edwards is not a vested veteran, he now hits the waiver wire meaning 31 other teams will get a crack at acquiring him (and his current contract). He's still young and completed over 65 percent of his passes in 14 starts his second year in the league.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen has come up with a tally of teams he thinks may make a claim on Edwards.

Two NFL executives told ESPN's Chris Mortensen they believe Edwards will be claimed on waivers by 4 p.m. Tuesday.

The Carolina Panthers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Kansas City Chiefs, New York Jets and Seattle Seahawks are among the teams expected to put in a claim.

Kansas City does make sense with the Chiefs only carrying two active quarterbacks in Matt Cassel and Brodie Croyle. We know GM Scott Pioli likes to have a project quarterback on the roster and I'm not sure if Tyler Palko (practice squad) qualifies there.

Here's a look at Edwards career stats. There are positives in there and I think his name is intriguing.
