The list of free-agent quarterbacks includes a guy who has started 24 NFL games, and who has proven to be a more-than-competent backup.

He’s Gardner Minshew.

Three days into free agency, his name has finally come up. Zak Keefer of reports that the Colts are looking into the possibility of adding Minshew.

Minshew has two years in Philly with new Colts coach Shane Steichen, and the Colts are currently looking for a starting quarterback.

The Jaguars traded Minshew to the Eagles prior to the 2021 regular season. He went 6-6 in 12 games as the starter in 2019, his rookie year.

Another former Eagles coordinator (Jonathan Gannon) is the coach in Arizona, and they need a quarterback until Kyler Murray is ready to go. It would make sense for the Cardinals to be eyeballing Minshew, too.

  1. Gardner Minshew to Arizona makes perfect sense. He is not a long term starter anywhere, but, he would be a good fill in for Arizona until Murray is ready to come back.

    Indy could make sense as the temp starter as well, until the rookie they draft is ready.

  2. Gardner Minshew looks like the guy that can get you a good deal on a quality lawnmower,because he “knows people.” And take part and put back together a ‘69 Chevy Camaro…..blindfolded. (someday Chuck Norris will pass the baton to Gardner Minshew)

  3. The Panthers and Colts are going to be awful for the foreseeable future.

  4. The last two years, Chris Ballard traded real draft capital for two veteran quarterbacks, both were terrible, missed the playoffs both years, and both QBs were either cut or traded away after one season. How in the hell does he still have a job?

  5. Minshew had 3 picks and 4 fumbles in 2 starts last year. He proved that he is still butterfingers in year 4. I don’t see the value.

  6. “has proven to be a more-than-competent backup”, lost every game he started last year.

  7. Uncle Rico is a baller. But he needs a quarterback coach to reduce turnovers. Tom House this summer, and he can throw it ‘over those mountains’.
