With the 2017 draft and UDFA period coming to an end lets take a minute and assess the market.
Big name and other veterans( most were once starters) could be out of work for a while.. Jay Cutler, Robert Griffin III, Colin Kaepernick, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Blaine Gabbert, Ryan Nassib, Christian Ponder, Matt McGloin, Dan Orlovsky, Austin Davis and Thadeus Lewis.
With ten quarterbacks selected over the weekend via the draft and with free agent quarterbacks like Josh McCown, Brian Hoyer, Matt Barkley, Case Keenum, Mark Sanchez, Mike Glennon etc already signed with new teams there ae few if any openings currently around the league at the position. Injuries in August or during the year could change this obviously but dont’ expect much action on the market.
A part of me wants to believe that many of these current free agent quarterbacks will get a call fairly soon but the stark reality is more likely that their careers as professional quarterbacks at the highest level are likely over.
