Free Agency Primer speeds up due to Free Agency tampering starting Monday at Noon March 13. Here is QB and Offensive Line.


Derek Carr- signed with Saints for 160 million over 4

Daniel Jones -re-signed with Giants for too much money

Geno Smith- re-signed with Seattle for low starter money but high incentives

Jimmy Garoppolo (coming off another injury)- worth it for a team ready to win with a good backup plan

Trade for Aaron Rodgers (Jets getting fleeced)- Jets all in

Tom Brady (when he unretires again)- Miami can woo him if Tua’s brain is broken

Carson Wentz (4th team in 4 years incoming)- backup

Trade for Matt Stafford (maybe Rams do it)- Rams get Goff, Lions get a two 1sts and a 3rd and Stafford. Reverse trade with Goff leading a top 5 offense now

Andy Dalton- expensive backup

Mike White- decent backup

Marcus Mariota- back-to-back up again

Baker Mayfield- sucks but decent backup but wants to start
