Well, a somewhat average prize is waiting if you are willing to pay the very high price of $15 million.
Yes, a team in need can grab a quarterback that may or not be any good for that princely sum. The list of lucky recipients with such good timing in a weak year for quarterbacks starts with Mike Glennon, 27.
Glennon is currently with Tampa Bay and has had over 600 pass attempts at about a 59% clip. Then there is Jimmy Garoppolo, 25, who has less attempts than Glennon, but comes from a better program in New England. The Chicago Bears seem to like Glennon, who was so good the Bucs drafted Jameis Winston.
Glennon has been around and his teammates seem to like him, but will that translate into success?
Now if the choices for the Bears are between Jay Cutler, Glennon or Garoppolo, I’ll take either of the latter two. It would be Cutler’s ninth year in Chicago if he returns, and his time here has been filled with disappointment.
So I’m ready for anyone new – good or bad! Would it be smart for the Bears to take Clemson QB Deshaun Watson as high as No. 3 in the draft or is that wasting that high of a pick? They definitely need a QB.
It’s a down year for QBs, so if you are Chicago, Minnesota, the New York Jets or Cleveland, what do you do? There are no guarantees anyone on the available list of QBs will pan out and I seriously doubt any of these teams will have great years no matter who they take.
It’s a roll of the dice, so let’s throwl it and see what happens.
