2009 Soon To Be NFL Free Agent Quarterbacks

Published on January 1, 2009 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Top Quarterbacks

Kurt Warner, UFA, Arizona Cardinals
The former MVP and Super Bowl winner is having a resurgent season in Arizona. He has 3,155 yards passing through ten games, having thrown 20 touchdowns to just seven interceptions. He has also posted a passer rating of 105.5. His yardage total is second in all of the NFL, while his touchdown total is second in the league and the passer rating is easily tops in the game. Warner will be looking for an extension from the team shortly, but if both sides can’t agree to a deal, Warner will still earn good money on the market even for an older player.

Matt Cassel, UFA, New England Patriots
While he was inconsistent for a majority of the season, Cassel has come on strong the past couple of weeks. It appears as though he has adjusted to being a starter. He has reached the 400-yard passing mark the past two games and tallied six touchdowns to just one interception in that time. His passer rating for the season is 90.5 and he has a decent touchdown to interception ratio for a first time starter. Cassel may continue being a backup in New England, but if he keeps playing as well as he has lately, a team may risk luring him away in hopes he can be a legitimate starter.

Jeff Garcia, UFA, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Garcia could retire at season’s end given that he is nearing forty years of age, but many expected he would have hung up his cleats by now already. The veteran just keeps going and is playing to keep his team in games. He had a strong showing in Philadelphia in ’06 and last season the veteran passer threw for over 2,400 yards and 13 touchdowns in 13 games. This season, he has thrown for just over 1,600 yards and only five touchdowns in seven games, but he has only three total turnovers. He may be asked to stick around somewhere in the league for another season.

Rex Grossman, UFA, Chicago Bears
With all of the criticism that Grossman has had to face, he did lead a Bears team that reached a Super Bowl in ’06. During that season he threw for over 3,100 yards and 23 touchdowns; he also turned the ball over 25 times. Grossman lost his starting role to Kyle Orton this season and has thrown just 62 passes, completing only 32 and having a pair of touchdowns and picks. Grossman appears headed towards being a career backup.

Kyle Boller, UFA, Baltimore Ravens
Boller has never lived up to the hype that came with him when he was placed on the injured reserve this season. In five seasons of earning sporadic playing time, Boller has thrown more touchdowns than picks just twice. The presence of Joe Flacco and Troy Smith almost guarantee that Boller will be gone after the season, and it is hard to imagine that he’ll be given a shot at starting anywhere. Like Grossman, he seems destined to be a career backup.
