RGIII will have another shot to start in the league. There are several teams looking for a spark at QB, and he does have the talent.

 

Now as far as backup for the Colts I could see a Drew Stanton reunion for a quality veteran backup behind Luck. I also think we should keep Freeman as well.

Some team is going to overpay to get him and it's not going to be the Colts.

 

 

I'm thinking he has to sign a pretty modest contract. I don't think teams will be standing in line to over pay RG3.

No. Just no.

 

Josh Freeman please.

 

This. Josh Freeman could be one of the best backups in the league, if not the best, if he's back to near the top of his game. I think his fall from grace has really helped him grow up and despite being around for what seems like forever he's only 28 (January birthday).

RG3 will get signed by a desperate team that needs a QB, and he'll be the starter....For a while anyways. Who knows maybe he goes somewhere and plays well. Or he goes to Dallas to be the backup, and eventual starter after Romo's inevitable injury. But all of the following teams will most likely look into him to be their starter.....Houston, Cleveland, San Francisco, LA Rams, and Philadelphia. Then teams like Buffalo may look into signing him to come in and compete for the Job. My guess is he goes to one of Houston, Cleveland, or the LA Rams and starts the season as their starting QB. I think Cleveland drafts Wentz so probably Houston or LA. Philly will re-acquire Foles IMO.

Agree 100%. Plus we wont have a 3-4 million dollar cap hit for our backup QB like with Hasselbeck. Freeman looked good at the end of the season. I think he's still under contract too.

Buffalo does not need to have a competition for the starting QB position. EJ Manual is the starter and will stay the starter.

tyrod taylor is the starter until proven otherwise 

You are correct. I wasn't thinking I guess.

    • How Ballard and Reich feel about Eason is the question.   He would be the ideal choice if he has impressed.    I would also consider bring Rosen in cheap to battle Eason for the back up QB position.
    • It sounds like the problem is Easterby.   I've watched a few videos and read some articles.    The players hate this guy.       https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2921872-report-texans-player-was-bothered-by-jack-easterbys-use-of-black-stereotypes
    • He didn't have a problem with having Foles as his backup. 
    • It’s gonna be really interesting to see what direction we go with Wentz’s primary back-up this year.  We’ve read that he had a real problem with Hurts nipping at his heels last year, but that might be a little overstated by the media. Nonetheless, re-signing locker room favorite Brissett might not be the best thing for the apparently insecure Wentz.  Likewise, if we signed a veteran like Andy Dalton, it could threaten Wentz’s job if he struggles early on.  It might be a good idea to go all-in on Wentz by intentionally backing him up with younger, inexperienced QBs who aren’t a threat to his starting position.  Of course, he’s spent a lot of his career injured, so a Dalton-like back-up could potentially save the season.  It’s a tough call.  I think I’d sign an Andy Dalton and hope Wentz has the character to understand that level of depth is best for the team...
    • I think we should consider drafting a hybrid SS/LB to pair with Leonard.  Maybe simply draft a new WILL, and move Leonard to MIKE.    I think we can do better than Willis and Oke.  We still seem to give up too much in the middle, and having a stud Hybrid player matched with Leonard will better secure the middle of the field on all three downs.  JMO.  Then get another FS who would cheat to the deep side. (maybe that's Tell)  And Blackmon can cheat towards roam the underneath more like Bob Sanders used to.   If we went OT at 21, then a speedy back-seven hybrid guy at 54, that would be great.   Will have to do more study on the players you mentioned.
