Doug Marrone hints Jaguars could be interested in Andy Dalton as backup

Doug Marrone

Jacksonville has been viewed as the most likely landing spot for Andy Dalton since the veteran quarterback was released earlier this week, and Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone is not ruling out the idea of bringing in another veteran QB. However, it sounds like Gardner Minshew still has the inside track on the starting job.

During an appearance on NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football” Friday morning, Marrone said there is “no doubt” Minshew is his quarterback. He also said there are “some veterans out there” that the Jaguars may look to bring in.

Dalton makes sense for the Jaguars, as their new offensive coordinator Jay Gruden was Dalton’s OC years ago with the Cincinnati Bengals. Those types of connections are important in the NFL, so it would not be a surprise if Jacksonville signed Dalton.

If Dalton does join the Jags, he’s not going to be handed a starting job. Marrone would likely hold an open competition. Of course, there is at least one other team that seems like a logical fit for Dalton, so there’s no guarantee he will sign with Jacksonville.
