One of the more interesting quarterback situations in the NFL may actually be in Jacksonville. In reality, their current position is something of a mess. Although the team has expressed a desire to keep former tenth overall draft pick Blaine Gabbert, he’s probably dead in the water. In addition, the team’s starting quarterback, Chad Henne, is still unsigned.
That’s the Jags’ current setup at quarterback, but there are a few factors working in their favor. Michael Vick will be available in free agency, and because he’d have the opportunity to be a starter, Jacksonville would be an attractive landing spot for him.
In addition to the attractiveness of offering a free agent such as Vick or even Josh McCown, the Jaguars have the third overall selection in the draft, meaning they’ll almost certainly have the option of taking one of the top two quarterbacks in the draft. Although owner Shahid Khan has indicated his team will definitely be drafting a quarterback, something everyone already knew anyway, the team has been quiet about the details of when such a pick would be used.no comments
