Currently the Jacksonville Jaguars have four quarterbacks on their roster in Blaine Gabbert, Chad Henne, Jordan Palmer, and newly signed Nathan Enderle. In the past, the Jaguars have kept only two quarterback on their roster to start the season and finished up with three after signing one midway through the year. This season however, Jaguars general manager Gene Smith plans to keep three quarterbacks in some kind of combination.

"From what you're able to do in the NFL -- not just penalties but fines -- I think the rules are set to help protect the quarterback better than any other level," Smith told Tania Ganguli of The Florida Times-Union. "When you look at the league, there are a number of teams that go with two now. But clearly, I would go with two or three. And if I went with two, I would have one on the practice squad, so three either way."

Then again.. there's always the guy on the tractor.
