Andy Reid Chimes In On Quarterback Decision

Andy Reid has chimed in on the decision to release Mike Kafka and go with Trent Edwards as the No. 3 quarterback.

“There was great competition at the quarterback position,” said  Reid through a statement. “That’s what football and training camp is all about. In the end, we had to make the difficult decision to let Mike Kafka go. Mike is a class act, a student of the game and a great person and I think he’ll have no problem finding a job in the National Football League very soon.

“On the other hand, I’m proud of the way Trent Edwards conducted himself since the early days of the offseason workouts. He had to fight for everything he earned this summer. He improved each and every day and made the most of every opportunity.”

The roster currently stands at 55 players. The deadline to trim the roster to 53 is 9 pm.
