Quarterback Mitch Trubisky and guard David Edwards addressed the media Thursday after signing contract or contract extensions with the Bills.

Here's what Trubisky and Edwards said of their new deals, remaining in/returning to Buffalo and the direction of the offense for next season.

Mitch Trubisky

Trubisky signed a two-year deal, returning to Buffalo after a two-season stint in Pittsburgh.

Trubisky, who spent the 2021 season backing up quarterback Josh Allen, said that the decision to sign with the Bills was an easy one.

When this opportunity to came back, it just felt right," Trubisky said. "It felt like kind of going home in the end."

Trubisky called his 2021 season with the Bills "special" and said he was looking forward to rejoining Allen and other former teammates. The former North Carolina Tarheel appeared in six games for Buffalo, scoring a rushing touchdown and throwing one interception.

"We stay in touch and I've always been rooting for him," Trubisky said of Allen. "So to be on the same team again, it's going to be special and I'm looking forward to going to war with these guys."

One member of the organization that will be new to Trubisky is offensive coordinator Joe Brady, who was promoted after spending the second half of the 2023 season as the interim OC.

Trubisky said he had a chance to speak with Brady and called the Bills' offense one that is "friendly to the quarterbacks."

"I'm excited to work with Joe," Trubisky said. "I got to catch up with him a little bit today. … He brings a lot of energy and passion for the game and after my talks with him, he's going to let me play my game. I'm not trying to be Josh Allen, I'm trying to be Mitch Trubisky and bring my skills to the table and do what I can do in this offense."

David Edwards

Edwards, who spent the first four seasons of his career with the Los Angeles Rams, echoed Trubisky's admiration for the city of Buffalo.

"Buffalo's a really special place and I had such a great esperiendce there with the guys in the o-line, the offense, the team," Edwards said. "I really wanted to come back and to be able to work something out and figure it out, I was pumped about that."

With a chance to play a major role on the offensive line, Edwards said he wanted to keep his mentality the same as last year going into next season. 

"My approach isn't going to change from last year to this year or any year that I've played," Edwards said. "You really got to earn it in this league and I wasn't promised anything last year, wasn't promised anything this year so my approach will be to be the best teammate I can be, work really hard and then compete to the best of my ability and whatever happens, happens."

With Brady set to have his first offseason as the Bills offensive coordinator, Edwards expressed his confidence in the young OC.

"He's such a smart guy, great way about himself," Edwards said. "Connects really well with the locker room and the offense. And then the results spoke for themselves toward the tail end of the season. And I think there was just a real confidence amongst the offense and the players having Joe lead us."
