Ex-Bills QB Edwards won't be claimed by an 0-3 team

None of the NFL teams with 0-3 records put in a waiver claim on free-agent quarterback Trent Edwards, team and league sources said Tuesday.

Edwards will either be claimed on waivers at 4 p.m. ET Tuesday or clear waivers and be free to sign with any team.

The San Francisco 49ers had been linked to the former third-round draft pick, who played college ball nearby at Stanford, but they won't pick him up on waivers, a team source said.

According to league sources, the Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions and Carolina Panthers, all 0-3, didn't place claims on Edwards either. The only other 0-3 team is the Buffalo Bills, who released Edwards on Monday.

At this point in the season, waivers are based off 2010 records, from worst to best in inverse order.

Edwards started the Bills' first two games, but he was replaced by Ryan Fitzpatrick, who led the Bills to 30 points in a loss at New England.
