Since it seems to be a general consensus that we will be looking for a future QB, I figured it would be a good idea to have thread on teams that we feel will be vying for a QB with us during the off-season. These teams are in no particular order:
Cincinnati Bengals: Finley was not the answer to Dalton's decline. Even worse, they may be looking for a head coach when it is all said and done.
Miami Dolphins: The entire team needs an overhaul, and that will start with a starter QB. Fitzmagic is only meant to be a bridge to the future and Rosen will be used to gather more ammunition.
Denver Broncos: Do the Broncos have enough time to find out if Drew Lock is their savior? John Elway has been consistently trying to find an answer after Manning.
Carolina Panthers: Newton is having surgery and most likely is done. Kyle Allen has not shown the franchise that he is capable of being a starter on a regular basis.
Chicago Bears: Mitchell hits free agency this year. While the Bears are finally above .500, their QB has caused too many mistakes.
Atlanta Falcons: Since their Super Bowl run, they have been in steep decline. A reboot is on the horizon, and Ryan might be shopped around.
New York Giants: They gave up on the Daniel Jones experiment and handed the reins back to Manning.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Has Bruce Ariens seen enough of Winston? It would be hard to imagine the Bucs not searching elsewhere for a franchise QB.
New England Patriots: Tom most likely is returning, but there's always that chance he decides to retire. The Patriots also like drafting and grooming QBs nearly every year.
New Orleans Saints: Drew Brees becomes a free agent this year. Realistically if he wins that coveted 2nd ring he could walk away from the game. Do they stick with Bridgewater for the long term?
Oakland / Las Vegas Raiders: It's entirely possible that the Raiders will try and trade Carr for more picks. Remember that Gruden and Co. parted ways with Mack fairly quickly. No one is safe in this organization.
Los Angeles Chargers: Rivers will become a free agent once the season ends and the Chargers will be in position to grab a young QB in the draft this year. Decisions, decisions...
I'm sure there's more that could enter the market. These things can be so unpredictable. But I figured this would be a fun way to reference who we might be fighting with come January / February.
