I keep reading all these average abs will be available but we already have an average qb on the roster in Sanchez. I know he played poorly last year but he was surrounded by garbage. Wasting our most valuable resource (cap space) on average qb depth does not seem good. Would rather get depth in O-line WRs TE ect.....Replacing tony should be an upgrade as well. Maybe add a guy in the draft if we can get a guy in the right place as well.
But then that logic dictates starting Sanchez which likely won't go down well with the fan base (there is of course McElroy but there seems to be no indication that he'll be in the frame for the starting spot next year).
It's slim pickings when it comes to FA QBs, and even slimmer pickings when it comes to draftable QBs. The best option therefore is to bring in an affordable veteran (Kolb, Moore, Flynn if released) and chuck him in the mix. Saying that, I wouldn't pay Kolb anything close to half the $9 million he is scheduled to earn as base salary.
