Sign someone who, I don't know, isn't a blithering idiot and might already know parts of the playbook because he spent some time here during Training Camp, like Patrick Turner.
You act like the Edwards signing completely eliminates any possibility of playing the young guys.
They are here, they aren't going anywhere and they will get a chance if Edwards isn't able to contribute.
But a I'll take a healthy/motivated Edwards over any of those guys.
If his knee isn't healed and if he can't help the offense, the other guys will get their shot.
This is a classic low-risk/high-reward move. I'm surprised so many people can't/won't see it this way.
And please, don't even bring up Patrick Turner. We all know what he offers -- absolutely nothing.
