The Oakland Raiders signed quarterback Trent Edwards to a future contract in order to add some competition for the 2014 off-season.

It was reported on Fansided.com on Friday morning that the Raiders agreed to a deal with Edwards for a reserve or future contract in order to spice up the competition at training camp in 2014.

As reported, Edwards had trained with the Raiders back in 2011 to be Carson Palmer’s backup, but he was beat out by Kyle Boller. The loss to the 2011 back-up position lead Edwards to be cut by Oakland.

After the cut with the Oakland Raiders, Edwards spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles and the Chicago Bears. Last year, the Bears released Edwards in the pre-season and never resurfaced in 2013.

Trent Edwards has thrown for 6,033 with 26 touchdowns in his career. The stigma is that he has 30 interceptions.

Quarterback Trent Edwards has also started for the Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles, and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Now, he will get another chance to re-boost his quarterback career with the Oakland Raiders. His competition in Oakland for the next off-season is still at large, since the Raiders were not very impressive with Terrelle Pryor or Matthew McGloin.
