Brian Hoyer-New England Patriots

Chad Henne-New York Jets

Josh Johnson-Seattle Seahawks

Kyle Orton-St. Louis Rams

Jason Campbell-Chicago Bears
If Henne leaves Miami and competes with Sanchez then what does Miami do for a starter? Seems like the obvious choice for Flynn is Miami, not Cleveland.

Re: Eight QBs and Where The Latest Rumors Have Them Going

Tannehill, Manning and RG3 are all serious options for Miami

If thats true which I could easily believe, we are going to have to give up the farm bigtime to win the bidding war with the Rams.

I thought this was a fit in this thread:

The stats bear out the relatively transient nature of NFL QB.
For example, at the beginning of the 1997 NFL season, of the 103 QBs drafted from 1989 to 1996, only 6 are starting for the franchises that picked them in the draft, and only 25% remain in the city where they were chosen. Of the 71 selected from 1989-1993, only 5 are even on the rosters of the original franchise.
In fact, 2 of the last 3 Super Bowl Champs acquired their starting QBs by methods other then the draft. Furthermore, of the top-ten rated QBs during the 1996 season, only 4 are with their original team. 4 were acquired by free agency, while Steve Young and Brett Favre came by way of trades (which occurred prior to FA)

Probably the best way for a large-market franchise to flex its muscle in the modern day NFL. Try to get RG3, but if that doesn't work, go pluck around the other 32 teams for players that teams have soured on after pouring considerable resources into.

My preference is Henne, but this would defend Orton coming here as well.

Exactly, I think he'd fit in nicely in Seattle.

Re: Eight QBs and Where The Latest Rumors Have Them Going

If were Manning I would be interested in going to 49ers. What is the 49ers salary cap situation? Can they absorb a Manning contract?

They have a good deal of cap room. And yeah, they are the perfect situation for Manning. But, for whatever reason, they don't seem to be interested. Which is a shame, because a healthy Manning makes them probably the Super Bowl favorite next year. Without him, I'd expect them to fall back a bit next year.

I never put to much belief into rumors. If and or when Manning is released and if Manning can prove to be 100% healthy, many of the seemingly uninterested teams will suddenly be very interested. It does not make sense for teams to reveal their cards at this point. Better to stay quiet. That is what the smart winning teams do.
If 49ers can add Manning and a couple of top FA WR's, which it seems there will be a few, the 49ers could be dominate. Manning has to see this. So do the 49er's FO.

Re: Eight QBs and Where The Latest Rumors Have Them Going

If Cleveland signs Matt Flynn, I feel that will be the most interesting signing just because of the ramifications of it.

Re: Eight QBs and Where The Latest Rumors Have Them Going

Even if Flynn signs with Browns and Manning goes to Dolphins, we are still going to have to trade up to #2 or #3 to get RG3 but it may lower the cost for us to get him.

Re: Eight QBs and Where The Latest Rumors Have Them Going

Mike Shanahan would sign Peyton Manning only if he thinks that Manning's presence alone can make the entire offense better. Maybe the wide receivers will improve their game. Maybe the offensive line will block much better. Then there's the potential of Manning calling his own plays. Kyle Shanahan would have to allow Manning to do that. Also, would Pierre Garcon or Reggie Wayne want to come to the Redskins along with Manning? Wanye has ties to Santana Moss from their days at the "U".

Re: Eight QBs and Where The Latest Rumors Have Them Going

This article was written to remind you it is almost too easy to get useful draft information from Mike Holmgren. Though this isn't really breaking new ground now that it's been reported.

Browns focusing on five in the first round | ProFootballTalk

The biggest takeaway from this: that the Browns can get someone from that group for certain if they trade down from 4 to 6.

The Dolphins remain a wild card pending free agency, but I still think Griffin will be there at no. 4, and I doubt that the Dolphins can put together an offer that beats the Redskins offer if the Browns really want someone on that short list.
