Kansas City Chiefs Never Put In A Waiver Wire Claim For QB Trent Edwards

New, comments

The Buffalo Bills on Monday released QB Trent Edwards at which point he hit the waiver wire. There was expected to be some activity on him and several reporters, including ESPN's Chris Mortensen, speculated that the Kansas City Chiefs may have an interest in Edwards.

In the end, the Chiefs didn't get Edwards as he was claimed by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Per ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Chiefs never even put a claim in on him. The New York Jets were the only other team that did.

I'm not sure that we can glean a whole lot from this but I do find it interesting that there's still just two quarterbacks on the active roster three weeks into the season. On the surface adding someone like Edwards would make sense to compete with Croyle but ultimately the Chiefs chose not to make a move.

By the way, even if they had claimed him, they wouldn't have gotten him. With that fancy 3-0 record, they're now one of the last teams on the waiver wire.
