Over this past Labor Day Weekend, NFL teams trimmed down their rosters to 53, leaving alot of quarterbacks out of work. However, some quarterback in particular shouldn’t be out of work for too long. Here are the six best options, young and old for teams looking to add depth or upgrades.
3) AJ Feeley: 7-8 career record; cut by Philadelphia who didn’t want to carry four quarterbacks.
2) Damon Huard 15-12 career record; cut by San Francisco who felt no need for a veteran presence when they are trying to develop Shaun Hill and rookie Nate Davis
1) Jeff Garcia - 58-58 career record; cut by Oakland who didn’t want to put any added pressure to JaMarcus Russell.
Attention to New England (Brian Hoyer), New York Giants (David Carr), Dallas (Jon Kitna), and Chicago (Caleb Hanie). Garcia and Huard in particular would be an instant upgrade to any of these teams.
3) Brian Brohm: second year out of Louisville
2) Chase Daniel: Rookie from Missouri
1) John David Booty: second year out of USC
Attention to Cincinnati (JT O’Sullivan/ Jordan Palmer), Jacksonville (Josh McCown), Oakland (Bruce Gradkowski, Charlie Frye), and St. Louis (Kyle Boller/Keith Null). Each of these teams would benefit from adding another young quarterback to their pipeline, especially since their starting quarterback situations aren't exactly stable.
Tomorrow I will discuss the worst quarterback situations going into the 2009 season.
