They are a part of the available veteran QB market, so, yes, interest in them would be dependent on the strength of the market overall.

Flynn was also a backup last year, which would make it very remarkable that anyone who didn't finish the year as the no. 1 guy in their organization isn't finding a no. 1 job this year. If he goes from GB to Miami/Seattle, that's one guy moving up the chain, and Henne to Seattle/Jacksonville might make a second.

Last year Tavaris Jackson and Rex Grossman got starting jobs. They had to compete, sure, but the competition wasn't exactly mind numbing. It seems inarguable to say the market isn't strong as it was last year, at least . And I would go as far as saying that there's basically no interest in (defined by competition to sign) capable QBs.

Re: 2012 NFL Free Agency Tracker

Well, we know of at least 2 teams that will be addressing their starting QB situation via the draft.

Re: 2012 NFL Free Agency Tracker

The last few offseasons have been very bad for Dallas. They're definitely on a decline.

They're probably destined for last-place finish in the division.

It's probably more like six, at least by my count.

Their cap space was next to nothing before blowing their load on Carr.

And Jerry Jones will find that out when Carr is getting scorched consistently. For what it's worth, they could have agreed to a one year deal to re-sign Terrence Newman.

You and I don't disagree on the facts but we do disagree on their meaning.

Your original point was that there is not a shortage of quality QB's in the NFL. Yet by your own admission:
1) Jackson and Grossman both were starters last year
2) as many as 6 teams seek rookie starters this year

To me these facts say that there is, in fact, a shortage of quality quarterbacks in the NFL. Otherwise things would shake out differently. If there were no shortage of quality QB's, every team in theory could have quality QB play, but we know that this is not the case.

As for Flynn, the fact that he is not being sought by many teams as an instant starter may reflect the fact that Kolb, Cassel, and others have failed to make the backup-to-starter transition smoothly. If this perspective is correct, it further supports the argument that there is a shortage of quality QBs in the NFL.

Browns released guard eric steinbach. I think we should contact him and bring him in if hes not expensive. Hes a good lineman.

@granthpaulsen: He'll be 32 on opening day. 8-yr vet has missed 2 games since '05. RT @JasonLaCanfora #Browns announce release of stalwart G Eric Steinbach"

He's older than shanny wants but with a clean injury background I think he could be a good short term stop gap
