QB Index: The 2017 trade market/free agency guide


Jimmy Garoppolo’s 2016 season was the equivalent of an unfinished demo that inspires a music-industry bidding war. (At least, back when people paid for music.) He’s a short-film festival award-winner about to be given big money by a studio. Whether anyone knows if he’s any good is beside the point. Does anyone ever truly know?

The shoulder injury that sidelined the Patriots quarterback midway through a propulsive Week 2 start against Miami was cruel timing for the third-year player, yet could strangely work in Bill Belichick’s favor. Garoppolo never had the chance to sully his boffo first impression, making him one of the most compelling who could be available this offseason.

In this week’s QB Index, we’ll take a look at the players set to hit free agency and some of the big names who could be released. But the trade market is where the most fun should be, with Garoppolo, and Tyrod Taylor all possibly on the table.

The updated 2016 QB rankings are at the bottom of the page, but for now, let’s look ahead to the 2017 quarterback market:

Trade candidates

1) Jimmy Garoppolo, : Garoppolo was torching the Dolphins in his second career start, showing a veteran’s sense of pocket movement. He went through his progressions like an old pro, was decisive, accurate and productive with 232 yards and three touchdowns in 26 throws. Regular-Season Jimmy G. was a different player than Preseason Jimmy G. He looked like a quality starter. And then it was over.

In Garoppolo, teams like the Browns and 49ers could see the future. Belichick could see Tom Brady still playing at an MVP level and be ready to deal. Remember that the Pats also drafted Jacoby Brissett in the third round in 2016, so they would still have a young backup to study at Brady U. Considering what quarterbacks like Sam Bradford have been dealt for recently, Garoppolo could cost a first-round pick and a new contract. No one said this was going to be cheap.

2) Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys: The 36-year-old will be the biggest risk/reward option available. We’ve already spilled so many words on his future that there’s no reason to repeat it all here. The biggest variable is whether he gets a chance to play again in Dallas, which would impact his trade value one way or another.

3) Tyrod Taylor, Buffalo Bills: He’s a goner from the Bills — if you believe the local coverage or consider that Rex Ryan was initially noncommittal about even starting Taylor in Week 15. Then again, Tyrod might just outlast Rex and/or general manager Doug Whaley in Buffalo.

It’s impossible to project whether Taylor will be back when his coach and GM are uncertain. His contract has a monstrous option for 2017 that would essentially guarantee Taylor $40.5 million for the next two seasons. Moving forward, that actually should be the going rate for a mid-level starter with upside — and that’s what Taylor represents. While it’s been frustrating to see the Bills fail to expand their passing game, Taylor has defined strengths with his vertical throws and exceptional running. He’s also extremely careful with the ball. Put Tyrod with Rex’s early Jets defenses, and you’d have a Super Bowl contender. (Rex has been chasing the ghosts of those defenses for six years now.)

In this market, with the salary cap rising exponentially, Taylor’s contract can still be an asset. It would not be a surprise if some organization, even if it’s not the Bills, wants to pay him that money. Sam Bradford is an instructive precedent again. Taylor would make plenty of teams better. Buffalo has until the third day of the league year to exercise the $15.5 bonus in Taylor’s contract, so there is time to assess the market. If the Bills strike out on a possible trade, Taylor could fit in the category below as a candidate for release.

4) , Cincinnati Bengals: The former fifth-round pick is set to enter the final year of his rookie deal with the Bengals in 2017, with no chance to surpass Andy Dalton the depth chart. He flashed potential in four starts last season, although the playoff outing against won’t help his case. He could be a target for a team looking for a low-cost option to compete for playing time. Hue Jackson, McCarron’s former offensive coordinator, could be looking to bolster his quarterback room in Cleveland.

Candidates for release

1) , Chicago Bears: Network Insider Ian Rapoport has reported that the Bears haven’t ruled out keeping Cutler. This sounds like covering bases in case Chicago makes a coaching change and the new head man wants to keep Cutler around at a relatively affordable $12.5 million. The team could also try to see if he fetches even a late-round draft pick, like Carson Palmer did on his way out of Oakland. If that’s the case, the rest of the league should call the Bears’ bluff and wait for Cutler to be released. Even the last survivor on Cutler Island (ahem) admits he’s been in Chicago too long.

2) Colin Kaepernick, : Rapoport reported in early December that Kaepernick will void his contract to become a free agent after the season. At this rate, he’s not going to replace the $14.5 million he’s set to make from the 49ers next season. His freedom to choose his next destination could be worth more than that to Kaepernick, and we are dubious the 49ers would want to keep him at that salary anyhow. He’s had a few nice moments this season, but Chip Kelly hasn’t shown great confidence in Kaepernick with his play calling. A top-level backup contract sounds more likely than a real chance to start.

3) Robert Griffin III, Cleveland Browns: There’s no getting around how scattershot Griffin has played in his two 2016 starts. Unless he improves his play, it’s more likely that RGIII falls right out of the league than becomes Week 1 starter again.

4) , : He’s somehow due $10.75 million next season. That looks like a contract intended to be discarded unless Foles is competing to start.
