Gailey made the right move

Standard

Some are questioning whether Monday’s release of quarterback Trent Edwards by the Buffalo Bills was the smart thing to do.

Considering his first two games Bills head coach Chan Gailey made the right move.

Edwards has become so scared of messing up he wouldn’t even throw the football during garbage time.

Edwards is lucky that several teams have put waiver claims thinking they can salvage something out of him.

However, his problem is mental as his high school quarterback coach Charlie Wedemeyer health diminishes each day with his kidneys having failed memories of his near death experience have cropped back up to the forefront of his mind.

Wedemeyer’s kidney’s failed prior to the 2008 season, which one could surely claim the concussion in the Bills game against the Arizona Cardinals that year and his three interception performance against the Cleveland Browns following the game against the San Diego Chargers, has created a mess of a quarterback.

In the end, Gailey simply put Edwards out of his misery.

As expected

Standard

The Buffalo Bills have announced that they have released quarterback Trent Edwards.

The move doesn’t come as a surprise as ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported yesterday that the Bills tried to trade Edwards.  However, with nobody willing to trade him they gave him his outright release.

In the end, the move ends what was at first a promising career in Buffalo.
