Who needs quarterbacks next year?
PFF had an article about each team’s biggest draft need heading down the stretch and only three teams were listed as QB being the biggest need (well, four but the Broncos aren’t going to take a QB that high without seeing Drew Lock):
1. Chicago Bears
2. Tennessee Titans
3. Cincinnati Bengals
Going a step further, I think we can also include a few more teams on that list.
4. Miami Dolphins
5. Carolina Panthers
6. L.A. Chargers
That means that five other teams need a quarterback and are looking at getting a guy in the draft or free agency, or keeping their guy in the case of the Panthers and Chargers.
I could also put the New Orleans Saints on that list because both Drew Brees and Teddy Bridgewater are set to be free agents this offseason, but they absolutely aren’t letting Brees go and if they did then they would do it because they wanted to keep Bridgewater.
So with six teams needing quarterbacks, let’s look at who could hit free agency and which teams could have their QB spot settled by March.
