Is Brohm Signing Beginning Of End For Edwards?

Trent Edwards

When Ralph Wilson, team owner of the Buffalo Bills, indicated that there would be wholesale changes within the organization, he obviously included the players as well as the coaching staff and front office, as evidenced by the team’s signing of quarterback Brian Brohm to a two-year contract and releasing third-string QB Gibran Hamdan.

What does the signing of Brohm possibly mean in reference to the QB situation in Buffalo? What comes to mind immediately is that the team has no problems forging ahead without sometimes-starter Trent Edwards. Which in a sense is rather unfortunate as the Bills at one time had considered Edwards the team’s “franchise” QB. His stock started dropping, probably starting at last Sunday’s loss to the Tennessee Titans as he threw 3 consecutive bad passes – the last one intercepted and returned for a Titans score. Not surprisingly, head coach named Ryan Fitzpatrick as the team’s starting QB against Jacksonville this weekend.

What is certainly unknown is where Brohm fits into Buffalo’s long-range plans as no one seems to know who the Bills’ next head coach will be next season; but because Brohm has plenty of upside, he would be an intriguing option for the team’s next head coach. I will safely assume that Fitzpatrick is as good as gone when this season ends; what happens to Edwards is anyone’s guess. But I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see Edwards and Brohm battling for the starter’s gig at QB come training camp next season.
