The only free agent QB would be Jay Cutler other than that there isn’t much else out there really. I believe if a QB like Brent Hundley falls to the second you have to get pull the trigger.
This roster will reach it’s ripest stage in the next couple years and each week it’s obvious what position is holding the offense back. I believe they have to bring in a capable veteran that can manage a game and an early round rookie.
It’s apparent Dalton’s progression as a QB has halted and some would argue that he has regressed in some areas. I feel that play calling has something to do with it as well and Jay Gruden getting a head coaching job might be the best thing for Dalton.
I don’t know how much Dalton has done to EARN another year as a starting quarterback, but I don’t think there are a whole lot of better options out there. Bringing in someone new could hurt a roster with playoff hopes.
