Of the available back ups who would you take then?


Not saying he is really any good but Ryan Fitzpatrick is by far the one I would take at a reasonable price compared to any of the QB's outside of Kaep or Cutler. Found much better success, teammates really seemed to have liked him everywhere he has been, and he has won.

Cutler still would be my #1 back-up option, but his price range puts him out of the question.

The teams in the NFC North have taken three very different approaches. The Vikings went with Case Keenum, a player with experience as a starter in two different offenses. He’s a young journeyman who showed enough to convince coaching staffs in Houston and both incarnations of the Rams that, given their circumstances at the time, he might give them the best chance to win.

Chicago: There is a full-on war going on that, at first blush, looks like the best of both worlds – the most highly-touted backup (Mike Glennon) looking for a starting job and a pick they gave up an embarrassment of draft riches to select (Trubisky). The Bears have two quarterbacks who both fully believe that they’re entitled to the starting spot. They have a head coach that, by all accounts, was late to the party finding out Glennon was the object of organizational affection and was clueless about the intention to trade up to take Trubisky. Both are looking over their shoulder. It won’t end well for one or both.

Green Bay: If Aaron Rodgers were to get sidelined, Brett Hundley would be the next line of offense on the depth chart. The same Hundley who has completed three of 10 career passes – two to teammates and one to somebody in a different-colored jersey – and has a career passer rating of 0.0. The last time Rodgers went down for any significant time, every week was an adventure for the Packers and not a good adventure.

Detroit: If Stafford takes a kill-shot hit, the choices are between sixth-round rookie Brad Kaaya or Jake Rudock, who, when his stats are called up on the Lions official website, all you get is a “No Data” response.

Packers fans said they wouldn't even listen for a Brett Hundley trade unless it involved multiple firsts.

he's really good in preseason. nevermind that he wasn't that good at UCLA. nevermind that his stats in mop up duty are atrocious. Preseason.

But preseason is where champions are made...just ask the Browns, who may be hanging their hat on the preseason champion Brock Osweiler or Cody Kessler.

One of the most interesting position battles to watch during training camp will be the backup quarterback job behind Sam Bradford. The competition includes Case Keenum and Taylor Heinicke, as the pair will head to Mankato looking to gain the edge on one another. Teddy Bridgewater is continuing his rehab and is not cleared to practice.

Since their competition won’t really pick up until training camp, Keenum has used last month’s organized team activities and this week’s minicamp to get familiar with his new receivers after spending last season with the Los Angeles Rams. He said that’s the toughest part of adjusting to a new team, and part of why he said he has thrown more incomplete passes during these practices than normal.

Before Thursday’s final minicamp practice, both Keenum and Heinicke said they welcome the quarterback competition as the first round between them nears an end and attention turns to training camp in July and preseason games in August. For Keenum, it’s a chance to show his experience as a 24-game starter in the NFL gives him a leg up on backing up Bradford. And for Heinicke, it’s a chance to rebound from disappointment last season when he needed ankle surgery two weeks before training camp.
