Between Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne, the Jacksonville Jaguars struggled at the quarterback position in 2012.
Gabbert was lost for the season when he hurt his right forearm and tore the labrum in his left shoulder against the Texans in mid-November, so the team replaced him with former Miami Dolphins QB Chad Henne.
The Jaguars finished 2-14, tied for the worst record in the National Football League.
To try and change their fortune next season, the Jaguars hired former Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley as head coach. While in Seattle, he improved their defense each of his four seasons at the helm.
Defensively, the Jaguars have nowhere to go but up. They ranked 30th in total defense last season and tied for 18th in takeaways.
Bradley will improve the Jaguars' awful defensive position, but will also need to focus on making the offense better, starting with the quarterback.
Gabbert doesn’t seem to be the answer, he has one 300-yard passing game in his career, and is wildly inconsistent.
If Bradley does decide to take the team’s offense in another direction, there are a few quarterbacks the team can trade for or sign during the offseason.
The Jaguars will have $22 million in cap space, so finding a quarterback to at least compete with Gabbert shouldn’t be a problem.
Should they take that route, here are five quarterbacks Bradley should keep his eyes on.
