Edwards Re-Signs With Roush, Biffle Plans To

ESPN [1] is reporting that Carl Edwards has decided to stay with Roush Fenway Racing after briefly considering free agency. He reportedly agreed to a three-year extension to remain in the No. 99 car.

Edwards was quoted as saying:

It took us about a week and a half of going back and forth with just little things and I feel like the luckiest guy in the world for the contract I got. … If I was dealing with someone that I didn’t trust or that I felt like I couldn’t just kind of air everything out with, then I’d probably have to have an agent, but dealing with Geoff [Smith] from day one has been very easy at Roush for me, so it was really pretty simple. Besides, I feel like I know what I need more than anyone else. I know what I want to make me happy and this is cool.

ESPN [2] is also reporting that Greg Biffle said he is intent on working out an extension with Roush this year.

He said:

There are a lot of great teams and great opportunities out there. … I am making my decision kind of how [Dale] Earnhardt Jr. did, and it’s about winning races and championships and contending for the title and having good equipment. There are a lot of teams that have that, but I feel comfortable where I’m at with Roush Fenway.
