FA QB mama-drama (3/14)

Alright, plenty of QB movement today, quick recap:


  • Culpepper traded to Dolphins for a 2nd round pick. The 'Phins release Gus Ferotte shortly afterwards (to avoid paying a 300k roster bonus), and they may now be looking for a 1 year vet for insurance.
  • After the Dolphins made their choice of Culpepper over Brees (probably due to contract issues), Brees Signs a 6 year $60mill deal with the Saints. which will pay him an $8mill SB and 2$mill base salary in 2006 followed by a $12mill option bonus (presumeably) if the saints are happy with him after the season.
  • The third domino to fall is that the Saints are now shopping the #2 pick. Best guesses are that they want to stay near the top of the first round to get M Williams (DE) and additional picks.
  • Lions Sign Kitna (bengals starter turned backup) four 4 years (3.5mill SB, 10.5mill deal), and announce an open competition for the starter's job in Detriot. Meanwhile, Palmer says he'll miss the guy ().
  • After the signing of Kitna, the Lions still want to sign McCown (for a 3-way? err.. 3-way competition?). Martz loves seeding a good (and prolonged) QB controversy. None of these guys are great, but they're all close enough to give fans plenty of options for why they should hate whoever happens to be under center at the time and how easy it would be to fix the situation with a constant QB carousel.
  • Meanwhile, the Raiders have McCown in town for a visit. They need to get someone.
  • Bengals are looking more like they'll be replacing Kitna with J Martin (rams #3 QB in 2006) in the #2 QB role. A bit scary since he stunk pretty bad last year and Palmer may not be ready to start the season.
The Saints' signing obviouly has the most far reaching implications regarding the draft.

In the mean time, where does all of this leave poor Patrick Ramsey? I guess he will eventually get picked up to be a backup somewhere else, like he was with the Skins last year. His starting days are over.

Re: FA QB mama-drama (3/14)

they may be. the Lions aren't going to trade a pick for him and the Raiders don't seem to care.

The Dolphins still need short term insurance ssince Gus is gone, and the Jets are also interested (also as insurance). Those are the best chances he has to start.

Re: FA QB mama-drama (3/14)

I wonder if Arizona would give us anything of value for Ramsey. Who's their backup QB now that McCown is gone?

Re: FA QB mama-drama (3/14)

Alright, here's today's update:

Lions | Harrington wants out
Wed, 15 Mar 2006 11:47:36 -0800

Tom Kowalski, of mLive.com, reports Detroit Lions QB Joey Harrington has told the Lions' front office and coaching staff that he does not want to play in Detroit. The Lions have been in talks with free agent QB Josh McCown (Cardinals), which could allow the team to move Harrington.

Eagles | Garcia agrees to deal
Wed, 15 Mar 2006 10:31:23 -0800

Len Pasquarelli, of ESPN.com, reports the Philadelphia Eagles and free agent QB Jeff Garcia (Lions) have agreed in principle to a deal. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Saints | Brooks released
Wed, 15 Mar 2006 16:15:00 -0800

The NFL Network reports the New Orleans Saints have released QB Aaron Brooks, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Dolphins | Culpepper passes physical
Wed, 15 Mar 2006 12:20:42 -0800

ESPNews reports Miami Dolphins QB Daunte Culpepper (knee) passed his physical Wednesday, March 15, which makes the trade from the Minnesota Vikings for a 2006 second-round draft choice complete.

Saints | Brees' signing would not discourage Leinart from coming

Wed, 15 Mar 2006 12:42:44 -0800

Jimmy Smith, of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, reports Southern California QB Matt Leinart's agent, Leigh Steinberg, said the New Orleans Saints' signing of QB Drew Brees will not deter his client from coming to New Orleans if the team selects him with the No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft. "From Matt's perspective, we have always assumed there would be a veteran starter with any franchise that drafted him," Steinberg said, "and (assumed) he would not be the immediate starter, wherever he would go, and spending some time learning has proven to be advantageous for a number of the best quarterbacks in football."



so garcia moves to philly, harrington wants out (with the possibility of 3 average QBs in town), brooks is finally out, and leinhart would rather go #2 than #3 or lower.

Harrington is due a $4 million roster bonus on June 15 and is scheduled to have a base salary of $4.5 million for the 2006 season.

Lions | McCown signed to two-year contract
Thu, 16 Mar 2006 09:37:51 -0800

Len Pasquarelli, of ESPN.com, reports the Detroit Lions have signed free agent QB Josh McCown (Cardinals) to a two-year contract worth $6 million. The deal will pay him $4 million in 2006 between his signing bonus and base salary.


not unexpected. Ramsey is now the premeire QB on the market with brooks, and soon harrington (who's the biggest bust of the 3). Ramsey is the least likely to make mistakes, so maybe now he'll have value to the teams that lost on mccown.


A couple teams prefer ferotte, but he should find a home soon, and there's a good chance it'll be with the vikes instead of back in miami.

Vikings | Wilf and Culpepper trade shots
Thu, 16 Mar 2006 10:35:30 -0800

Sean Jensen, of the Pioneer Press, reports Miami Dolphins QB Daunte Culpepper and Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf blamed each other for the way Culpepper's career in Minnesota came to an end. Culpepper said, "Up until March 6, I felt I was going to be a Minnesota Viking. It really wasn't about money. It was about the principle of the whole thing. The way I see myself is way more important than any dollar amount that someone can throw at me." Wilf claims, "We tried everything to have him be our leader. But it seemed like a lot of things that happened last year, between the injury and the (Love Boat) incident, he felt it was time to move on. His attitude has been building up since we asked him to work out up here. He decided, against everyone's suggestion, that he was going to do things independently on his own."


I don't know who title'd this blurb, but that is SERIOUSLY weak smack.
