3 realistic free agent QBs the Atlanta Falcons could sign in 2023
Gardner Minshew – Philadelphia Eagles
Another elite mustache playing for an Atlanta team? It would be something worth celebrating. If you do not know the other player I am referring to then just go look at the pictures of the players on the Atlanta Braves roster.
His mustache is elite, same with his swagger, and he has also had moments on the playing field that you could put into the ‘elite’ category.
The Jacksonville Jaguars not too long ago were toying with the idea of making Gardner Minshew their franchise quarterback but Trevor Lawrence ended up in their laps, so you cannot blame them for going that direction.
Minshew has had numerous games in his career where he has passed for more than 300 yards and thrown multiple touchdowns. He has the ability to scramble, maybe to a lesser extent than the other guys on this list but the ability is still there.
In his rookie season he put up some great stats all things considered. He threw for over 3,000 yards, had 21 passing touchdowns, and just six interceptions, while he was a rookie playing for the Jaguars, not exactly the easiest situation.
By the time he becomes a free agent, assuming he does not get traded from the Eagles and signed to another contract, he will have four years in the league under his belt, who knows, maybe he has taken a big step forward during that time and could be something special.
At the very least you get the most confident quarterback off the field and someone who fans will love.
