Default Quarterback Trades

With Joey Harrington signing with the Falcons, it seems as if the backup quarterback free agent pool has just about dried up. Which teams have an unstable quarterback situation and didn't address the situation by adding an extra vet in free agency? Which ones do you think would be interesting in another team's backup?

I ask this most specifically because I really do think that David Garrard will get traded sometime this offseason. He's already started grumbling about Leftwich being named the starter, and there have been rumors that Del Rio and the Front Office won't put up with Garrard causing rifts in a city that has been very sensitive about the quarterback situation since Mark Brunell left, and would be willing to get rid of him for a bargain price if the situation worsens.

Not really. I still can't believe Tim Rattay hasn't been signed by someone yet. Terry Bradshaw has even come out and said something about that. Aaron Brooks is still out there as well. He's a tar tar, but I honestly don't think he's much, if any, worse than Garrard. Then again I think Garrard is mostly fluff and hype and wouldn't give more than a 5th rounder for him.

Completely agree. He is the byproduct of a city that has been intent of having a quarterback controversy since the day Byron Leftwich was drafted. He's gotten extensive playing time and has showed that he's not a starting caliber quarterback in this league.

I also think everyone just hates the idea of a "mobile" QB going to "waste". He did have some awesome plays running over some people, I'll give him that.

I agree. Living in Jacksonville the last two years, it was like there was nothing Byron could do to win the people over. My Dad has one of the biggest Garrard hard-ons in the city. We argued about it a lot, and then one day I put up a poster of Byron Leftwich in our companies shop. That didn't go over to well...

I'm kinda suprised know one has signed Rattay or Brooks yet. The big trade I've been waiting for would have to be Trent Green. IMO I'm guessing Miami should bid a little higher than Clevland is right now.

I think, in the end, everyone is just waiting for Trent Green to get released. Kansas City isn't exactly operating from a position of strength with him right now, since it is very likely he could simply be cut. Why waste a pick, especially when they are asking for the sky...

The Chiefs have the cap room to keep Green if they really want to that being said even as a Chiefs fan I have to lol that they want a second round pick. I think in the end they will get a 4th at best and at worst a 5th I think he will end up in Miami.

Anyone with a WCO should sign Rattay.

Brooks wouldn't be a bad backup, he was pretty average in New Orleans, which means he'd be a decent backup imo. Let him run around and hand off if the starter gets winded.

I'm still shocked no one signed Drew Bledsoe. The man is a hell of a QB and has just been put in bad situations.

I think Drew Bledsoe is a good fit with whatever team ends up with Brady Quinn. From all that I have heard, it seems like Bledsoe was a good mentor to TB in new england, so for all intents and purposes, why not let him mentor Brady Quinn (and start for 1 season while Brady is being prepped)?

Too bad Bledsoe is letting his ego get into the way.

If teams wanted to FA to come in and start, they probably would have jumped on David Carr/Joey Harrington a little quicker. I would still take Trent Green as a starter for my team over Drew Bledsoe.

If Miami gets him I think it will go down a few days before the draft and if the Browns get him could be a draft day trade.
