It's not that we're making Monday a day dedicated with discussions on free agent quarterbacks; it just happens that way sometimes. And since the immediate future of the team's quarterback position is generally considered the biggest news this offseason, it would be a good idea for all of us to stay informed on the happenings of not only Andy Dalton, the Palmer brothers and Dan LeFevour, but free agent quarterbacks that the Bengals could sign.
But you really have to wonder one thing. How likely would it be for the Bengals to land a quality free agent? The team just went 4-12 the season before. Drafted a long-term future quarterback in Dalton with wide receivers that while talented, are incredibly inexperienced.
NFL Network's Jason La Canfora speculates on the quarterback derby.
If I'm handicapping the quarterback derby, I'd give Kevin Kolb to the Seahawks, Marc Bulger to the Cardinals, Donovan McNabb to the Vikings, Alex Smith to the 49ers and Matt Hasselbeck to the Dolphins. Still wonder if Vince Young makes sense for the Redskins as a developmental guy to go with John Beck, who is a developmental guy himself at this point. Rex Grossman could find himself back in that mix as well once McNabb is traded or released.
