The best and the worst free agent quarterbacks in 2017.
The quarterback position has become a very tightrope to walk and the position is littered with names like Carson Wentz, Andrew Luck, Andrew Weber, Josh Rosen and Josh Rosen, among others.
But who among those could you build your dynasty around and who might you be willing to trade away?
Let’s take a look at the best and worst free agents available in 2018.
Peyton Manning Peyton Manning, QB, Denver Broncos: I know you’re saying, “But he won’t be a starter for the next four years.
How much more does he deserve?”
The answer is, “He should be a first-ballot Hall of Famer.”
He should have played every single snap he played last season and he should have won MVP for the Broncos.
And now he’s coming off his fourth consecutive 100-plus-yard season and the Broncos have the best quarterback in the NFL in his prime.
Manning has made the most of his opportunity and he’s only going to get better.
He’s a proven winner.
The Broncos have an amazing core of young players, and they’re starting to find their rhythm.
If they can keep Manning on the field, they could be in the playoffs in 2020 and beyond.
Robert Griffin III Robert Griffin, QB.
Cleveland Browns: I don’t know why people would say the Browns are getting too deep into the quarterback market.
It’s all about RGIII.
After spending the offseason signing a number of quarterbacks, it’s clear the team is in a different place than they were last year.
RGIII’s development has been a bit slow in recent years, but he’s not just a passer.
He has the physical tools to be a very good pro.
There’s still plenty of room for improvement, but I believe Cleveland will be fine with RGIII in the lineup.
He will play well in Cleveland’s offense and should be the best starting quarterback in football.
Matt Ryan Matt Ryan, QB (Atlanta Falcons): I know the Falcons are trying to move on from Ryan.
He was a very strong-armed, tough-minded quarterback who led the Falcons to an NFC South title.
Ryan will be 38 next year and is in his best years.
He’ll be 34 in 2022, and I think that’s a pretty good age to be the starting quarterback for a team that has the best offensive line in the league.
Ryan has a legitimate chance to become a top-five quarterback in NFL history.
The Falcons have a lot of young talent to work with, and the Falcons have plenty of young pieces in the front seven.
I’m not saying Ryan is the answer, but the Falcons will be better with him on the team.
Carson Palmer Carson Palmer, QB: Palmer is a guy who was an elite passer for a number in his career.
He could become a Hall of Fame quarterback if he can stay healthy and produce at a high level.
But if he’s healthy and plays like he did last season, I think he could end up being a good one.
But, there’s no guarantee.
Ben Roethlisberger Ben Roemlisberger, QB/RB: Roethisberger is still young and still raw.
The Steelers offense will need a lot more playmakers.
Roethlesberger has shown a lot, but his game is not yet complete.
The question is: Will he be able to sustain that level of play through the 2019 season?
The Steelers will have to give him a big contract extension this offseason, and Roethresberger is not a free agent.
The decision is not that clear-cut.
Roebesberger could end the season on injured reserve and end up getting cut before the end of the season.
He may have a career year and make the playoffs.
Aaron Rodgers Aaron Rodgers, QB / RB: Rodgers has been playing at a top level for the past four years, so it’s no surprise he has a good chance to stay healthy for the 2019-20 season.
Rodgers has a lot to prove, but if he keeps working hard and improving, he has the tools to play at a level at which he belongs.
The Packers have a ton of young offensive talent, and Rodgers is the best of them.
He should continue to play as well as he has.
Andrew Luck Andrew Luck (Indianapolis Colts): Luck will be 34 this season.
There will be a lot going on for the Colts this offseason.
They will have a number at quarterback, and Luck has to prove that he can be a reliable quarterback.
But the Colts could also be willing a trade for Luck to get a better package.
They could make a big splash in free agency to address the quarterback position.
Luck should be their starter for another four years at the very least.
Marcus Mariota Marcus Mariotas, QB : I know it’s a new year and that you can’t say the Titans are going to be
