ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Eagles will sign QB Trent Edwards in the next 24 hours to a one-year deal.
Another interesting note from Roseman, is that he seemed to be indicating that the Eagles will be signing Trent Edwards in the coming days.
This is interesting because the team is expected to add a quarterback and replace Vince Young but Edwards isn’t exactly a popular player at this point.
There have been plenty of rumors in the past month that have suggested that Jackson has played his last game in Philly but since then the team has been very open about their interest in keeping Jackson on their roster for the foreseeable future.
The Eagles figure to apply their franchise tag to him in the coming weeks but it will be interesting to see if they attempt to get a long-term deal done.
Both players were given the “minimum salary benefit” for last season which allows them to test the market before they can be re-signed. This is similar the Cowboys situation with WR Laurent Robinson.
Philadelphia wants to retain both of them but Mathis played well enough to draw plenty of interest on the open so we’ll have to see what he chooses to do.
