How About a Backup QB?


#1

I’m thinking maybe FitzMagic, Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater, Mike Glennon, Tyrod Taylor, or Trevor Siemian. Trevor Siemian stands out as someone who could be a cheap but quality backup QB that would fill the role quite nicely. Tell me your thoughts on this topic. Here’s a link to the free agent QBs on Spotrac.

Thinking it’s going to be Connor Cook, and that doesn’t scare me even a little bit.


#3

But do you agree that it would be nice to have a backup like FitzMagic to backup Stafford so we aren’t scared of Stafford getting hurt. I wouldn’t want to spend a lot of money on a backup QB but if we can get an upgrade for the backup QB position without spending a boatload of money I’d be happy with that.


#4

Nice? Sure.
Affordable? Not after today.


#5

I agree the top guys will cost a lot more after the market has been set today. Do you think that we still could upgrade the backup while still being logically affordable. How about a guy like Trevor Siemian? I think we easily could afford him.


#6

Blake. Bortles.


#7

I’m just not feelin it.


#8

If Tyrod Taylor is cheap, he’d be interesting as a backup. Might be good for a few games if Stafford gets another Boo Boo finger.


#9

Tyrod Taylor would be good and Blake Bortles would fit if he got cut, which if the reports are correct, he will.


#10

Tyrod Taylor signed by Chargers for 2 years. Teddy backed out of the deal with the Saints, still available. So everyone on my list at the start is still available except Tyrod Taylor.


#11

Jaguars just officially released Blake Bortles.


#12

Yeah, that one shocked me. He really seemed content learning underneath Brees.


#13

Teddy back with Saints. Wishy-washy.


#14

Don’t know anything here, but I could see the Lions kicking the tires on A.J. McCarron as a backup to Matthew Stafford. I’ve said before, Lions looking for a little upgrade to that spot this offseason.

AJ McCarron would be nice, too.


#16

Blaine Gabbert?


#17

FitzMagic off the board. Going to Dolphins.


#18

PS - Bring back Dave Krieg


#19

Bortles gone. Rams.

I keep telling you guys, they picked up Connor Cook for a reason.
