Bills release Trent Edwards

Trent Edwards' four-year tenure with the Buffalo Bills has come to an end.

The Bills today announced they have released the quarterback who less than a month ago was their starter.

Edwards lost his starting job last Monday to Ryan Fitzpatrick after the Bills began the season 0-2. Edwards struggled mightily in those games, throwing for just 241 yards and a 58.3 passer rating. The team's offense was last in the NFL in yards and points after the first two game.

The switch to Fitzpatrick came as a surprise, since Edwards took all the first-team reps in training camp and the preseason games. Fitzpatrick threw for 247 yards Sunday in a 38-30 loss in New England. He threw two touchdowns and two late interceptions.

Edwards, a former third-round pick out of Stanford in 2007, started 32 games in his career. He threw for 5,739 yards, 25 touchdowns and 27 interceptions.

Bills coach Chan Gailey will address the team's decision at 3 p.m. when he meets the media.

Review the talk at Allen Wilson's Bills Replay.
