Will the Jaguars sign a QB soon?

New, comments

The Jacksonville Jaguars have just two quarterbacks under contract currently in Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne. For all intents and purposes, they split the season's snaps in 2012 and the results weren't all that much different. The Jaguars have a voluntary mini-camp before the draft, and one would assume the team would like more than just two arms in camp, especially with Gabbert coming off his shoulder surgery and having some lingering nerve issues in his throwing arm.

The big question is however, who would they sign that's worth bringing in?

The free agent market at the quarterback position wasn't very deep to begin with and now it's exceedingly thin. There are some names who would make sense, like Tyler Thigpen and Kellen Clemens, but are they going to sign here to likely be released after the draft?

No one left in free agency really poses a threat to challenge or win the starting job and all are likely to be back ups, at the best, on virtually every team in the NFL at this point.

It will be interesting to see what the Jaguars do at the position before the mini-camp, but so far all signs point to them drafting a quarterback at some point at the end of April.
