2013 NFL Free Agents: Quarterback Rankings and Predictions

1. Joe Flacco, Baltimore Ravens (28 years old)

The Super Bowl MVP is undoubtedly going to be looking for a BIG time raise after his performance in the 2013 NFL Playoffs.Flacco is a very average to slightly above average regular season quarterback who flips some kind of switch when the playoffs roll around.

Prediction: Back with Ravens

Actual: Agreed to Long-term deal with Ravens

2. Matt Moore, Miami Dolphins (29 years old)

Moore is a capable starter in the NFL who doesn’t make a lot of mistakes, but he absolutely isn’t going to be a guy you want starting for your team permanently. I think he knows his role as a backup in this league, but I think he’ll seek out a place where he at least opportunity to be a starter.

Prediction: Signs with Arizona Cardinals

Actual: Re-signs with Dolphins

3. Jason Campbell, Chicago Bears (31 years old)

Campbell is a former first round pick who has likely missed out on his window to be a starter in the NFL unless someone in front of him goes down. I like his fit with the Chicago Bears, but I’m not sure if he’ll be back.

Prediction: Re-signs with Bears

Actual:

4. Chase Daniel, New Orleans Saints (26) — Signs with Kansas City Chiefs

 

5. Brian Hoyer, Arizona Cardinals (27 years old)

Brian Hoyer was being talked about this time last year as a potential big time trade candidate from New England before bouncing over to the Cardinals. Hoyer hasn’t really gotten a chance to show what he can do as an NFL starter, but there are probably still some people who believe he can be one eventually.

Prediction: Signs with Vikings

Actual: Tendered (2nd round) by Cardinals
