ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - The Buffalo Bills have released quarterback Trent Edwards in a surprise move that came a week after he lost the starting job for a second straight season.

The team announced the move in a two-paragraph release Monday, a day after Ryan Fitzpatrick provided the offense with a spark in a 38-30 loss at New England. Coach Chan Gailey was scheduled to address reporters later in the afternoon.

Edwards was in his fourth season in Buffalo after being selected by the team in the third round of the 2007 draft out of Stanford. He went 14-18 as a starter, including 0-2 this season.

He was benched a day following a 34-7 loss at Green Bay on Sept. 19 after going 11 of 18 for 102 yards and two interceptions.

Brian Brohm is the other quarterback on the roster.
