The Cincinnati Bengals have released quarterback Andy Dalton.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have one of the youngest groups of quarterbacks in the league.
What do you think they should do?
And just like that, with the release of Andy Dalton, $17.7 million comes off the Bengals’ salary cap. https://t.co/oQ69H6Uyou— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 30, 2020
Yes, they should sign Andy Dalton
I can’t see them signing him to anything longer than a one-year deal so the stress of spending months trying to find a trade partner if he’s not that good (see: Nick Foles) wouldn’t be there. And he’s more serviceable than anyone on that roster not named Gardner Minshew.
The Jaguars need a veteran in that locker room and Dalton is it for what will likely be next year and next year only.
No, they shouldn’t sign Andy Dalton
I’d rather not take on a contract, even for just one year, of what will be in the $18 million for one year ballpark. I also don’t want Gardner Minshew looking over his shoulder all offseason — you commit to Minshew and you see if he’s the answer this year. If not, you do what you can to trade up in the NFL Draft and get your guy.
Plus, if Minshew gets injured or just flat out stinks, I’d rather just go 2-14 and have the highest draft pick I can get. No use picking off a couple of teams after you’re eliminated from playoff contention and using both of your first round picks to get your guy when you can just tank and still keep a second pick in the first round.
What do you think?
Should the Jacksonville Jaguars sign QB Andy Dalton?
