5 Backup QBs That Would Make Better Starters Than Shaun Hill

  1. Brock Osweiler, QB, Denver Broncos

    Brock Osweiler has an expiring contract in 2016. The former Arizona State Sun Devil was a second round draft pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. Osweiler has sat behind arguably the best quarterback in Peyton Manning. Osweiler has an expiring contract in 2016 and Manning has an expiring deal in 2017.


    Manning will likely play through his deal. May as well make a play for Osweiler since he is an upgrade over Shaun Hill.


  1. Rex Grossman, QB, Cleveland Browns

    My dad said Rex Grossman is the best quarterback on the Browns roster. That statement sounded laughable to an extent before the Browns preseason episode at FedEx Field on Monday Night Football.


    Grossman and Shaw did better than Hoyer and Manziel. Only one of those quarterbacks will make the Browns roster.


    Shaw’s hail mary was epic. It would be cool if the Rams brought in Grossman as insurance to Shaun Hill while letting Shaw keep his roster spot.


  1. Christian Ponder, QB, Minnesota Vikings

    Christian Ponder, the Vikings 2011 first round pick wants to be a starter somewhere else. Send him to St. Louis only to watch Matt Cassel or Teddy Bridgewater open up a can of whoop ass on Ponder and the Rams.


  1. Kirk Cousins, QB, Washington Redskins

    Kirk Cousins went 0-3 when replacing RGIII late last season. Still, some fans believe he would be capable of starting on the right team. The 2012 fourth-round draft pick finally gets a one-year gig as a starting quarterback in St. Louis. It will not really matter since St. Louis will likely draft a quarterback in 2015.


  1. Ryan Mallett, QB, New England Patriots

    I was excited when the Patriots took Jimmy Garoppolo because I wasn’t high on Mallett coming out of Arkansas. Some consider Mallett to be a guy that is capable of starting. Mallett was a backup in two preseason games and looked awful as a backup in both games. Garoppolo has shined in every preseason game whether it be at third string or backup.


    This makes Mallett expendable in New England. Before Belichick would have demanded a first round pick for Mallett. Now he will take a second round pick for Mallett in the 2015 NFL Draft. St. Louis is dumb enough to do what the Chiefs did leading up to the 2009 NFL Draft when they gave the Patriots an extra second round pick.
