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.

    • I'm excited to hear that Ballard was looking to pay Watt that much, but I'm glad that Watt chose elsewhere. Because this might mean that we get Yannick N. or one of the other top pass rushers. 
    • As someone else mentioned, Grigson had Luck.  In addition, he had a solid group handed off to him from the Polian area and had an opportunity to win multiple Super Bowls because of an outstanding QB.  What did he do with it?  He destroyed Luck's body by not supporting him with a line that could protect him.  What's Ballard done?  Built a strong, full roster that is now in position to win without a one man show like Luck was asked to be.  Ballard is 1000% better...just one man's opinion.
    • just showing their records, not saying anything else
    • Grigson Total Draft choices - 38 Top 50 made pro bowl - 2 Top 50 bust - 3 Bottom 50+ pro bowl - 0 Bottom 50+ starters - 5 Best Moves:  Andrew Luck, TY Hilton, Vontae Davis, Corey Redding, D'Qwell Jackson, Adam Vinatieri, Ryan Kelly, Pierre Desir Worst Moves: Trent Richardson, Bjorn Werner, Phillip Dorsett, TJ Green, D'Joun Smith 2012 Executive of the Year   Ballard Total Draft choices - 38 Top 50 made pro bowl - 2 Top 50 bust - 2 Bottom 50+ pro bowl - 0 Bottom 50+ starters - 6 Best Moves: Quenton Nelson, Darius Leonard, Brandon Smith, Marlon Mack, Nyhiem Hines, Jonathan Tylor, Michael Pittman, Khari Willis, Julian Blackmon, Mark Glowinski, Jabaal Sheard, Justin Houston, DeForest Buckner Worst Moves:  Malik Hooker, Quincey Wilson, Kemoko Turay, Rock Ya-Sin, Ben Banogu, Parris Campbell   Amazing how close success and failure are in the NFL.  It's a hair's breadth between a 6-10 season and a 10-6 season.
