2011 NFL Free Agents: Quarterbacks

2011 NFL Free Agent Positions:
QB | RB | FB | WR | TE | OT | G | C | DE | DT | OLB | ILB | CB | S | K/P | Recap

2011 Free Agency: Star rating is out of five. Age listing as of Sept. 1, 2011.

  1. Peyton Manning, QB, Colts. Age: 35.
    Re-signed with Colts (5 years, $90 million)

    Statistically, Peyton Manning had a poor year by his standards, throwing 17 interceptions to 33 touchdowns and generating just a 6.9 YPA. However, considering that he was working with no-names like Blair White and Jacob Tamme all year, Manning had an exceptional season. It's highly doubtful that Bill Polian will allow him to hit the open market.

  2. QB Eagles No. 7. Age: 31.
    Franchised by Eagles

    QB Eagles No. 7 still has his elite athleticism and arm strength. He also still has his inability to make multiple reads and recognize the blitz. He turns 31 in June, so you have to wonder how much longer he'll maintain his elusiveness.

  3. Matt Hasselbeck, QB, Seahawks. Age: 35.
    Signed with Titans (3 years, $21 million)

    Matt Hasselbeck looked like he belonged in a glue factory at many points during the year, but played really well in the postseason. He was ultimately betrayed by close to a dozen drops by his receiving corps in Chicago, but he proved that he can still get it done if he has the support around him.

  4. Caleb Hanie (RFA), QB, Bears. Age: 25.
    Re-signed with Bears (1 year)

    A former sleeper of Mel Kiper's, Caleb Hanie handled himself very well in relief of Jay Cutler and Todd Collins in the NFC Championship. I'd like to see Hanie get a shot at a starting gig somewhere in 2012. For now, the Bears will have to use a second-round tender on the Colorado State product.

  5. Vince Young, QB, Titans. Age: 28.
    Signed with Eagles (1 year)

    Vince Young is stupid and immature. That's what it comes down to. Young has immense talent and wins games against crappy teams, but he'll never lead a team deep into the playoffs until he improves the mental aspect of his game and takes football more seriously. I don't see that happening anytime soon.

  6. Marc Bulger, QB, Ravens. Age: 35.
    Announced retirement

    A year off from football is exactly what Marc Bulger needed. If his next team has a good offensive line, Bulger could recapture some of his early-2000s magic.

  7. Billy Volek, QB, Chargers. Age: 35.
    Re-signed with Chargers (2 years)

    Billy Volek is one of the better backup quarterbacks in the NFL. It sounds as though he may join Ron Rivera to temporarily take over as Carolina's starting quarterback.

  8. Alex Smith, QB, 49ers. Age: 27.
    Re-signed with 49ers (1 year, $5 million)

    Let's use some GameCenter commentary for this: "reguardless Alex Is a GREAT Secondary I dont want him gone I just dont want him as a Starter." Translation: Alex Smith would make for a good backup, but not a starter. That, or Alex Smith can play defensive back. You never know with these GameCenter people.

  9. Bruce Gradkowski, QB, Raiders. Age: 28.
    Signed with Bengals (2 years)

    The Polish Point-Shaver isn't the most skilled quarterback in the league, but he has a Jeff Garcia-type feistiness and is capable of being a low-end starter in the NFL.

  10. Luke McCown, QB, Jaguars. Age: 30.
    Re-signed with Jaguars (1 year)

    Back in August, I predicted that Luke McCown would supplant David Garrard as the starter this year. McCown came in for an ineffective Garrard in Week 2, but tore his ACL amid going 11-of-19 for 120 yards. McCown is a quality backup who won't kill a team if he has to start for a few games.

  11. Seneca Wallace, QB, Browns. Age: 31.
    Re-signed with Browns (3 years, $9 million)

    Completing 63.4 percent of his passes on a 6.9 YPA, Seneca Wallace proved once again that he can be a capable backup in this league.

  12. Kerry Collins, QB, Titans. Age: 38.
    Signed with Colts

    Kerry Collins plays drunk sometimes, but his 28-of-39, 300-yard, two-touchdown, no-interception performance at Indianapolis in the season finale indicates that he can still be a solid backup in this league.

  13. Tarvaris Jackson, QB, Vikings. Age: 28.
    Signed with Seahawks

    Tavaris Jackson can be a decent backup quarterback in the NFL. No one aside from Brad Childress thinks he can start, however.

  14. Troy Smith, QB, 49ers. Age: 27.
    Troy Smith is a mediocre backup quarterback. He can make stuff happen on the ground, but his completion percentage (50.3%) was horrific this season.

  15. Chad Pennington, QB, Dolphins. Age: 35.
  16. Dennis Dixon (RFA), QB, Steelers. Age: 26. -- Tendered by Steelers
  17. Derek Anderson, QB, Cardinals. Age: 28. -- Signed with Panthers
  18. Drew Stanton, QB, Lions. Age: 27. -- Re-signed with Lions (1 year)
  19. Pat Devlin, QB, Delaware. Age: 23. -- Signed with Dolphins
  20. Nate Davis, QB, Colts. Age: 24.
  21. Rex Grossman, QB, Redskins. Age: 31. -- Re-signed with Redskins
  22. Jim Sorgi, QB, Giants. Age: 30.
  23. Matt Moore, QB, Panthers. Age: 27. -- Signed with Dolphins (2 years)

  24. Trent Edwards, QB, Jaguars. Age: 27. -- Signed with Raiders
  25. Matt Leinart, QB, Texans. Age: 28. -- Re-signed with Texans
  26. Kyle Boller, QB, Raiders. Age: 30. -- Re-signed with Raiders (1 year, $1.25 million)
  27. Tyler Thigpen, QB, Dolphins. Age: 27. -- Signed with Bills (3 years)
  28. David Carr, QB, 49ers. Age: 32. -- Signed with Giants
  29. Mark Brunell, QB, Jets. Age: 40. -- Re-signed with Jets
  30. Brian Brohm (RFA), QB, Bills. Age: 25.
  31. J.P. Losman, QB, Seahawks. Age: 30.
  32. Dan Orlovsky, QB, Texans. Age: 28. -- Signed with Colts
  33. Rudy Carpenter (ERFA), QB, Buccaneers. Age: 25.
  34. Charlie Frye, QB, Raiders. Age: 30.
  35. Kellen Clemens, QB, Jets. Age: 28. -- Signed with Redskins
  36. Jordan Palmer (RFA), QB, Bengals. Age: 27.
  37. John Parker Wilson, QB, Falcons. Age: 25.
  38. Brodie Croyle, QB, Chiefs. Age: 28.
  39. Keith Null, QB, Panthers. Age: 25.
  40. Jake Delhomme, QB, Browns. Age: 36.
  41. Todd Bouman, QB, Jaguars. Age: 39.
  42. Todd "Tom" Collins, QB, Bears. Age: 39.

@Media ruined Tebow: Tebow isn't a winner, he hasn't proven anything in this league. The only reason he won that playoff game is because Thomas had a beautiful run after the catch. This isn't college Timmy, no one cares WHAT you did, only what you CAN do.

I'll take a winner(say,Tebow)over a physical talent that doesn't win(Josh Freeman,(V-Tech senior)Logan Thomas).the media has ruined his career because they love to ruin guys(overhyping Russel,Gabbert,Manuel,etc...)and Tebow is expected to be a Micheal Vick(running wise)/Peyton Manning.THE MEDIA RUINED TEBOW.they need to buzz off him and let him win in his unique what he has a horrid completion percentage?it's old school and he has to be accounted for.Jacksonville would have given him MJD and a great for him situation.

Please tell me you're kidding with Tebow being number two and a "solid" qb. I will never go on this site again otherwise.

that is apples and oranges. tebow took over the very worst nfl team recordwise after a 1-4 start and went with that team to the playoffs as a divion winner and won a playoffs game. sanzech never was in such a situation nor did he turn over a team like that. tebow's team won under him - that very same team was the worst in the nfl under orton.

Tebow's teams won...despite him. What you're trying to say is that Mark Sanchez really isn't that bad because he won 4 road playoff games in his first two years. Which puts him in second place all time for most road playoff wins. However, they won despite him not because of him.

Tebow is a winning quarterback. Just look at his past. The objective of football is to win, and that is all he does. haters gonna hate, gators gonna gait.

if tebow takes over a team with the worst combined record of the previous 2 seasons and a 1-4 start and has a 7-4 record and a playoffs win with that same team (actually without lloyd and with injured von miller) then judging him on the team record might seem appropriate. if you watched al games under orton and under tebow like me - you must have seen the totaly different team energy when tebow took over. it's not just about the stats with tebow. but i am also not sure if he could do that long term - for just one season to turn a team over and give them some poise, he is the perfect candidate.

Tebow is terrible...stop judging quarterbacks soley on the TEAM's record. Judge them based on their contribution...Tebow has a 47.9% completion percentage. That is terrible and will not lead to long term success with a team in the NFL. Jamarcus Russell had a career completion percentage of 52.1%

well he has a 9-7 record as a starter so why not call him a winner based on this fact. also before he lost the 4 out of 5 games, he won 6 games in a row, one of them @kc. it might be true he doesn't have a carrer anymore in the nfl - but that is no reason to lie about his carrer wins. he had a better carrer in the nfl than most qbs who make a nfl team already.

A lot of people forget that Tebow lost four of his last five starts with the Broncos. And one of those losses was to a team quarterbacked by Kyle Orton, and coached by Romeo Crennel, who only won two games in the 16 games after that, and gave the Chiefs the #1 overall pick the next year. But I digress. My point is, don't call him a winner. He might have a career in Canada or indoor football, but he doesn't have the ability to warrant a starting job. Plus the media attention isn't worth it.

2010 with orton: 4-12
2011 with orton: 1-4
2011 with tebow: 7-4

tebow took over a team with a combined record of 4-16 (the very worst in the nfl) in his 2nd season, he lost lloyd - team's best wr at the time who was traded away after orton was benched, and tebow won with that team 7 games. it was excitig to watch the broncos again and it seemed tebow's presence made all the players to step up their game.
i am not saying at all that tebow won those 7 games and the playoffs game on his own - but i also don't think at all that we would have gone 8-8 and to the second round of the playoffs with orton.
