When QB Trent Edwards was banished to the bench last season in favor of Ryan Fitzpatrick, the general belief was that his days in Buffalo were numbered. After all, he appeared to lose his confidence and struggled mightily during the early part of the season before suffering a concussion. The way we hear it, though, the Bills' new regime plans to keep Edwards around, seeing him as a "salvageable" player. According to the 26-year-old passer, one of the reasons he took a step back in 2009 was because he was receiving mixed messages, with as many as three people in his ear at times all giving out different instructions and advice. Now that man in charge of the offense is well defined — head coach Chan Gailey will be calling plays — Edwards just has to worry about listening to one person. Depending on what the Bills do in the draft, we hear Edwards is the early favorite to start in 2010.
