Edwards praises young WRs

Bills QB Trent Edwards was asked if he’s seen improvement in his game through the course of OTAs with respect to the offense. While he briefly addressed his own progress, he made sure to praise the young receiving corps.

“I still have a lot to learn,” said Edwards. “There are still things I need to iron out. There are still things I need to get on the same page with some receivers. I like a lot of the young receivers we have. I think it’s the best group of young receivers we’ve had since I’ve been here. I’ve been really encouraged with those guys. Just getting on the same page with those guys. I’m happy with where my mechanics are but once you get content you’re not going to get any better. So I need to continue to improve and continue to get better.”

Players like Naaman Roosevelt, Donald Jones, Felton Huggins and Marcus Easley have all made plays in the practice setting as have James Hardy and Steve Johnson. What will be interesting to see is if those young wideouts are as successful once the pads go on in camp.

Edwards, much like Brian Brohm expressed last week, said the reps for the three quarterbacks has been nothing but fair.

“We’re splitting reps evenly,” Edwards said. “I think they have it down to every single rep we’re getting and everyone gets the same amount. You can’t say one guy got more than the other guy. When it comes down to it you’ve got to make plays when you’re out there. And when you’re not you’ve got to sit back there and learn what you need to learn.”
