Having the right guy calling the shots during the games on the pitch can make and break a team. The Chiefs lost their best running back before the season started, but on the back of Patrick Mahomes, the team could pull out of that situation and win the Super Bowl.

Perhaps no one personifies more the need for a good QB like Tom Brady did for the New England Patriots. The QB was thrown into the mix in his second season as a rookie and never gave the position back. Twenty years later, he won 6 rings with the team and one with Tampa Bay. So starting the off-season with a good QB in your corner is essential.

So which QBs are on the move after Derek Carr went to the Saints?

Lamar Jackson: Probably the most coveted free agent at the moment. When he is healthy he can be elite. Unfortunately, his injuries are a cautionary tale, which might be the reason as to why the Ravens have been so hesitant to give him the exclusivity tag.

Most probable outcome: He will re-sign with the Ravens for a contract superior to the $40M per year. Commanders, Panthers, and Dolphins are interested.

Daniel Jones: What a season the NY Giants QB has had. He has been great this season under Brain Daboll. The Giants sneaked into the playoffs, and even though they were beaten quite easily by the Eagles, the 25-year-old showed that he could be trusted with the franchise’s future. Daniel Jones is not a turnover QB anymore.

Most probable outcome: Update/Has signed a four-year extension with the team worth $160M.

Jimmy Garoppolo: The man is known more for his good looks and for not caring if he loses or wins. In nine years in the league, he has only played one full one as a starter and finished it with no injuries. He can deliver and be a good second in command if needed.

Most probable outcome: He will sign with the Raiders on a one-year contract worth $15M.

Aaron Rodgers: Green Bay had a plan for him three years ago when the team signed Jordan Love as their QB. A move that Rodgers didn’t appreciate and made him seek a move out of the team. He has the goods to deliver anywhere he goes, and Green Bay could trade him. If they wanted something for him, this was the moment. He is costly and has danced with retirement.

Most probable outcome: He stays with Green Bay, collects his $45M contract, and retires next season, hopefully with a successful 2023 year.
