Top Free Agents:
Jay Cutler [Chicago Bears] - After trading the farm to acquire Cutler from the Broncos several years back, the Cutler era has yielded mixed success. Cutler has been prone to interceptions behind a horrid offensive line and has struggled to break into the upper echelon of passers in the league. For the Bears, the story looks a little difference. To them, he has provided the organization with the best years of quarterbacking in years. Choosing to go in a different direction would be a huge gamble-one that would send a mild shock throughout the league.
Michael Vick [Philadelphia Eagles] - Vick has managed to extend his career in the league every time it seems the world's ready to count him out. With Chip Kelly, the promise and upside again returns the allure. If he's a strong fit, the Eagles will continue to invest in Vick. His potential and ability to sell tickets should afford him another chance even with his injury- and mistake-prone past even if the Eagles do go in a different direction.
Josh Freeman [Tampa Bay Buccaneers] - Freeman continues to disappoint the Buccaneers. Though he'll have stretches of great games, his wild inconsistency will leave the team unable to stand by him unless he makes significant progress throughout the year. Given some of the early season controversy surrounding him and a rookie Mike Glennon waiting in the background, the odds seems unlikely. Surrounding the quarterback in Tampa are two excellent wide receivers and one of the premier up-and-coming running backs in the game. His offensive line can lead to no excuse either. It's do or die for Freeman in 2013. As a free agent, he'll either be rewarded by the Buccaneers or fall victim to the endless carousel of bottom-of-the-barrel starting opportunities available around the league.
Chad Henne [Jacksonville Jaguars] - Few people doubt that Chad Henne will have an opportunity to start at some point this season for Jacksonville (Update: he's already received that opportunity in week two). With a solid receiving corps, tight end, and running game, Henne should be in a reasonable situation to perform well enough for a top back-up contract. It's unlikely that he'll find a more porous quarterbacking situation next year outside of Jacksonville should playing time be his top priority.
