SHARE Bears sign veteran QB Trent Edwards

The Bears added another quarterback to their mix on Sunday, signing veteran quarterback Trent Edwards to a one-year deal.

Edwards was signed a day after the Bears announced a deal with quarterback Jordan Palmer. The Bears now have five quarterbacks on their roster, including Jay Cutler, Josh McCown and Matt Blanchard.

Blanchard, though, is injured, sparking the additions of Palmer and Edwards. It’s currently unknown how long he’s going to be out, but he suffered a broken knuckle on his left, non-throwing hand in the Bears’ preseason victory against the San Diego Chargers on Thursday.

To make room for Edwards, the Bears waived receiver Jerrell Jackson.Edwards has started 33 of 38 games played over five seasons with the Bills (2007-10), Jaguars (2010), Raiders (2011) and Eagles.(2012),

In his career, Edwards, a third-round pick out of Standford in 2007, was completed 60.6 percent of his passes for 6,033 yards, 26 touchdowns and 30 interceptions.
