If you happen to study the rosters of all 32 NFL teams on ESPN, you will discover that there are currently 89 quarterbacks listed. The only one of the 89 that is questionable is Brad Smith of the Buffalo Bills, who will undoubtedly be a wide receiver this Sunday far more often than he will be a quarterback.
Of the 89 quarterbacks, you may be surprised to learn that 14 of them are rookies, meaning that there are only 75 veteran quarterbacks left that are active in the NFL. Where did the rest all go?
Due to the new NFLPA labor agreement, many teams are only carrying two quarterbacks this season. After scanning the current rosters, we found that exactly 11 teams are only carrying two quarterbacks on their active roster. Those 11 teams will be very nervous indeed if their starter ever goes down.
Out of the number of veteran quarterbacks that are still out there, we are selecting nine free agent quarterbacks that are available and can still fill a need for a NFL team. We will further clarify what that exact need or role is for each of the nine quarterbacks in question.
