6 NFL teams reportedly in hunt for quarterback help
With an unconvincing class of rookie quarterbacks coming through the NFL Draft, a number of teams are eyeing veteran help at the position. A new report suggests six teams in particular are quite focused on available quarterbacks.
The Commanders, Colts, Buccaneers, Saints, Panthers, and Steelers are surveying the quarterback market, according to Jeff Howe of The Athletic. Washington has been particularly aggressive, while the Saints are among the teams more casually assessing available options.
None of these teams are particularly surprising. The Buccaneers and Steelers had Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger retire, while the Commanders, Colts, and Panthers got poor quarterback play for the bulk of 2021. The Saints appear to know which direction they’re leaning, but are doing their due diligence.
This is almost certainly not an exhaustive list. Some other teams are reportedly eyeing the market to at least see what comes available. However, these six teams are definitely among the most intriguing to watch during the offseason, as they figure to be active.
