Quarterback Carousel

Grace Higgins | March 27th, 2020

Recently, a number of quarterback changes have occurred across the NFL. With so many teams changing signal callers and tanking for college prospects, established quarterbacks are now in new places.


The Carolina Panthers, who recently allowed quarterback Cam Newton to seek a trade partner, released him instead. Newton is now on the open market. As of right now, Newton is not linked to any teams, although he had a physical in Atlanta earlier in the week. During his time with Carolina, Newton became the first rookie quarterback to pass for 4,000 yards. He also won the MVP in 2015, the same year he led Carolina to the Super Bowl.

In a one-year deal, Philip Rivers left the Los Angeles Chargers (still weird) to join the Indianapolis Colts. Now that the CDC has recommended crowds remain below 10 people, how is the Rivers household remaining afloat? Rivers now replaces Jacoby Brissett, who took over after Andrew Luck suddenly retired, leaving a playoff roster in shambles. The deal for Rivers is worth $25 million.

Joe Flacco was waived by the Denver Broncos after only eight games with the team. The former Super Bowl champion passed for 1,822 yards, six touchdowns and five interceptions as a member of the Broncos.

After the struggles of Mitchell Trubisky, the Chicago Bears traded for Nick Foles, giving the Jacksonville Jaguars a fourth-round pick in the process. Foles notably led the Philadelphia Eagles to a Super Bowl win over the Tom Brady led New England Patriots (Brady still passed for over 500 yards but whatever). Last year, the Bears entered the season as a dark horse Super Bowl contender. Trubisky passed for 3,138 yards, 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, with lots of low moments in the second half of games.

The Patriots, who lost Brady to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, signed Brian Hoyer to a one-year deal worth $2 million. Hoyer is familiar with the Patriots system and could help Jarrett Stidham learn the ways of a Bill Belichick offense.
