2010 records determine waiver order for Edwards

Don't laugh, but NFL teams will be lining up for Trent Edwards' services this afternoon, just a few days after the Buffalo Bills decided to release him from their roster . Or, more accurately, they may have already lined up and are shuffling around trying to figure out who might be in front of them for his services.

See, if a player is dumped in the first three weeks of the NFL season, the prior season's records determine the waiver order. If it's after the first three weeks, the current season's records determine the order. Edwards was dumped on Monday, after the third Sunday of the season but not before the entire week was completed.

However, according to the NFL's clarifying statement to Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk , 2010 records will matter in this instance, because Edwards' contract is being awarded on Tuesday (which is today and which is after Week 3, obviously).

A quick glance at the standings reveals a few teams that stink this season, primarily because of quarterback problems: the Panthers, the Jaguars, the 49ers, the Browns and the Lions are all 0-3 and have either a) had a quarterback get injured, b) replaced their starting quarterback for poor performance at some point this season or c) been fooled for the 500th time by Alex Smith playing well in one game.

Oh yes, and the Bills. But it's at least "improbable" that they would release him and then claim him. ("Impossible" seems like a stretch, given the absurdity of releasing him this early in the season without even seeking some sort of trade with a quarterback needy team.)

Also in the mix -- according to Chris Mortensen -- are the Seahawks, Chiefs and Jets, although it seems pretty unlikely that, given their back-of-the-line status, any of those three would have a shot at landing Edwards.

But yeah, Trent Edwards is really popular, which is why it makes absolutely no sense that the Bills just cut him outright.

Just add it to the seemingly endless list of idiotic decisions the Bills have made this decade. This year has plenty to rival the dozens of others for most bone-headed move in the NFL. A few of my favorites so far from this year alone:

1. Drafting a RB in the first round when that was the ONLY area on offense that did not need to be fixed.

2. Knowing that teams were interested in a disgruntled Lynch, if they were going to draft Spiller, deciding it would be a good idea to field offers AFTER the draft, rather than prior to selections. This way every NFL teams knows the Bills are desperate to unload one of their 3 RBs and won't give up diddly to get him.

3. Naming Edwards the starter and cutting him after 2 starts. Beyond stupid.

4. Teams are lining up at the waiver window to get Edwardsl. So they can get him for essentially nothing and the Bills, already the worst team in the NFL, fudged up a chance to at least improve their team by getting SOMETHING for Edwards in a trade. I hope the Browns sign him and then he throws 5 TDs during the annual Battle of the Turds game between ClE and BUF where the Browns always win.

BazeBaller...If you can get an NFL starter, even one that looks as bad as Trent Edwards has at times, for nothing, you have to do it. Depth is everything in the NFL, starting QB's go down to injury almost every week.

The Alex Smith comment is hilarious.  Being a 49ers fan I wish it were true because if so that means he had 500 really good games which isn't the case lol.
