The Jacksonville Jaguars have a quarterback problem — a quarterbacks room that consists of Blake Bortles, Cody Kessler, Tanner Lee, and Alex McGough.
In my opinion, McGough should be the only quarterback still in that room in September.
All that aside, the Jaguars will be in the market for some fresh blood at the quarterback position and free agency and the NFL Draft will be two avenues they take a swing (or two) at it this year — and ESPN contributor KC Joyner believes that if Teddy Bridgewater is let go by the New Orleans Saints, his home this year will be in Jacksonville.
Several ESPN writers and contributors were asked to fill in the blank:
If free agent QB Teddy Bridgewater isn’t in New Orleans in Week 1, he’ll be in ______.
Most said with the Miami Dolphins or in Washington, but Joyner was the lone person who said Jacksonville.
“The Jaguars do their analytics homework and will know that Bridgewater passed all seven of the all-important Parcells Rules prior to the 2014 draft. They have a Super Bowl ceiling with the right quarterback under center, and Bridgewater’s skills would fit superbly well in Jacksonville.”
While I think Dwayne Haskins is the long term answer at the position, a mid-tier guy would be preferable to pair with him in his rookie season. Tyrod Taylor, Josh McCown, and Ryan Fitzpatrick all make a lot of sense. Teddy? I’m not so sure. After all, this team had several chances to sign Teddy and didn’t bite. Why would they do so now?
What do you think? Is Teddy a realistic option as a guy to bring in and pair with a rookie? Or will it be some other veteran quarterback? Let us know in the comments below!
