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.

    • The Jacksonville Jaguars select:  Christian Barmore, DL, Alabama    Cleveland is on the clock
    • Exactly the order I've had them for a few years now.  Even before the TB Super Bowl victory.  That's not bad company right there and 2 of the 5 wore the Horseshoe and another was drafted by the Colts but refused to wear it...so, HE'S DEAD TO ME ... lol!
    • No question about it, Marshall Faulk was an awesome player.  NFL Rookie of the Year as well as Pro Bowl MVP the same year?  That's not something that is accomplished very often and I believe Faulk may have been the first to do it.  He was drafted in 1994 and stayed here until 1998.  Some great seasons wearing our Horseshoe.  Again, no question about that.  He went on to play about 8 more seasons in Saint Louis and won a Super Bowl with the Rams.  My reservation with Marshall is longevity...here.  IMHO, that ROH is for players who have made significant contributions over a period of time for the extended success of the franchise.  Is it possible for someone to come in, play a shorter length of time and be inducted?  I'd say yes if a Lombardi was hoisted because of that significant short-term contribution.  Just my opinion on the subject.  I believe we are on the same page though @BluesGirl.  Tough calls that Irsay and those around him get to make.  Not a bad gig or problem to have though.  Right?
    • Patriots select Kwity Paye Cardinals next. 
    • Sims has been pretty good actually. So good in fact that I won't judge him on this until it plays out over the coming years. But as a general sense I'm not yet convinced on Wilson, but I do agree that Mond seems a bit underrated. One thing I like about Sims is that when he is wrong though, he doesn't make excuses. He just admits he was wrong. But when it comes to ranking QBs over the last few years he's been pretty good.
