Not a lot of franchise quarterbacks on this list

Here’s the updated free-agent list at QBs with Tarvaris Jackson off the board 

Joe Flacco/BAL/UFA 

No chance he hits the free market.

Brian Hoyer/ARI/UFA 

His claim to fame is that he backed up Tom Brady.  Played a bit in Arizona.  Like all quarterbacks in Arizona he underwhelmed.

Matt Moore/MIA/UFA 
There could be some teams interested in Moore.  Norv Turner was a fan of Moore’s and wanted him in San Diego.  He would be an upgrade in Cleveland.  There is also noise that he is very popular in Miami and they want him to return as a backup.

Chase Daniel/NOR UFA 
Yeah… he was fun in college but has no chance of a pro career.  A third stringer at best.

Brady Quinn/KAN UFA 
I love Brady Quinn but only because I have memories of him at Notre Dame and one good game in Cleveland.  Not only is he a mediocre backup QB at best, his comments suggest he isn’t a great locker room guy.  He seems to have a sense of entitlement about playing quarterback in the NFL

Matt Leinart/OAK UFA 
Which CFL team will he sign with?

Tyler Thigpen/BUF UFA 
Probably is out of the league.

Derek Anderson/CAR UFA 
I can’t believe that he is even a consideration.  What is he doing in the league?  He had one good season and the rest were atrocious.

Jason Campbell/CHI UFA 
An interesting choice.  He has started and played well before.  To be honest Oakland played better with him as starting QB than they have with Carson Palmer.

Byron Leftwich/PIT UFA 
Outside of Pittsburgh, he has no market value.

Rex Grossman/WAS UFA 
Bad Rex, bad Rex.  Would you feel secure if your team signed Rex even to a third string contract?

Josh McCown/CHI UFA 
Still in the league?

Kellen Clemens/STL UFA 
Backup and nothing else.

David Carr/NYG UFA 
His career hasn’t quite turned out as well as we had hoped.

Josh Johnson/CLE UFA 

Bruce Gradkowski/CIN UFA 

Drew Stanton/IND UFA 
Maybe try baseball again.

Charlie Batch/PIT UFA 
Your drafting caused Barry Sanders to retire.  You should be punished in some way for that.

Luke McCown/ATL UFA 
Backup and nothing more.

Jordan Palmer/JAC UFA

UFL bound.  What? The UFL doesn’t exist anymore?  Well he is still UFL bound.

Expect to see Tebow on this list once he is cut by the New York Jets.  I expect him to sign with ESPN to cover college football.  If I was a GM in need of QB, I would be calling San Francisco hourly about Alex Smith or New England about Ryan Mallet.
