The Jaguars currently have Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne at quarterback, but they’re not going to be alone for long.
During an interview with FOXSports.com’s Alex Marvez and Jim Miller on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Jags general manager Dave Caldwell said he wanted to add a quarterback, possibly plural, in the next few months.
Caldwell offered praise for the incumbents, but said he’s actively looking to add “at least one other quarterback into the fold, possibly two.”
As to how he’d address the vacancies, Caldwell mentioned “through the draft, college free agency, pro free agency or however we may get him.”
So basically, if you’ve thrown a ball, you’re a possibility considering the Jags have arguably the worst depth chart at the position in the league at the moment.
The Jaguars are picking second in the draft, and while the early reports weren’t encouraging — Chiefs GM John Dorsey said he wasn’t sure there was a quarterback worth a first-round grade — that won’t last.
The closer we get to the draft, the more desperate teams without one will become. And with so many needy teams in the top 10, guys are going to get chosen sooner than perhaps they should.
And while Caldwell touted the “stiff competition” between Gabbert and Henne, they’re going to be competing with someone else as well. Or two someones.
