FA tracker with complete list of free agents
Joe Flacco (BAL) - After leading the Ravens to a Lombardi Trophy in the final year of his rookie contract, Flacco is set to receive a big payday. With a team-favorable franchise tag, the Ravens have some leverage, but after his tremendous postseason, most of the leverage in negotiations should have shifted to Flacco. Though his level of play falls short of elite, he'll look to enter the ranks monetarily while setting a new market for the next generation of quarterbacks.
Jason Campbell (CHI) - After a rough outing against San Francisco on a nationally televised game this year, Campbell left a bad taste in the mouths of America. However, if organizations can look beyond a performance where he was running for his life for 60 minutes, they'll find a solid back-up quarterback in the right situation.
Tarvaris Jackson (BUF) - In a weak crop of free agent quarterbacks, Tarvaris Jackson could find a nice little market. There's too much talent at the position now where he'll even have an opportunity to compete for a starting gig, but with the success of the read-option this year, he could have a handful of suitors interested in bringing him in as a back-up to maintain continuity in the playbook if the starter goes down.
Matt Moore (MIA) - As a leftover from the previous regime, it seems unlikely that Matt Moore will remain in Miami through the next offseason. He's a fairly reliable game manager with the capability of making just enough plays to scrape out a win or two here and there, as he did against this Jets this year when Tannehill missed a start to injury. After Jason Campbell, Moore may be a top option for many teams looking for clipboard guys.
Drew Stanton (IND) - Though he's failed to log a single pass over the past two seasons, Stanton was fairly impressive for a couple games in Detroit in 2010. There was definite interest in Stanton last offseason, but another year without throwing a pass should mean diminished opportunity. With his limited playing time, Stanton displayed leadership and enough playmaking skills to warrant serious looks as a back-up.
Seneca Wallace (FA) - Wallace has long been a personal favorite of mine off the bench, embodying a back-up quarterback to its fullest. With enough accuracy and mobility to convert 3rd downs, he's a player that can get a team through a game with a defensive effort. There are better options, but to me, he's among the 64 best quarterbacks in the game. However, finishing the season as a free agent, it's obvious that most NFL teams disagree.
