Of course, the tough part in evaluating

Bortles is that he has http://www.footballbillsofficial.com/Tredavious-White-Jersey done this over the past three weeks against teams -- the Colts, Seahawks and Texans -- that have been decimated by injuries; you could make one hell of a defense out of the guys who are done for the year across those three teams. Bortles already was playing the best football of his career before this three-game stretch, though, and it's undeniable that he simply looks like a much more Tyrunn Walker Jersey confident and consistent quarterback in terms of his Joe Mixon Jersey decision-making and mechanics than he did previously.

Three weeks ago, though, virtually everybody was signing up Eli Manning for a reunion with Tom Coughlin in Jacksonville next season. Three months ago, we were all sure Bortles was done in Florida. I suspect this will come down to how Bortles performs in the playoffs. If he plays fine and the Jaguars either win the Super Bowl or lose for reasons unrelated to their passing attack, he'll be back. If he reverts to form and lays a Brian Hoyer-esque stinker at home in the wild-card round, though, the Jaguars probably will look to upgrade this offseason.

As heavily as the Jags were criticized by people like me for handing Bortles a fifth-year option on his deal, it might end up working out brilliantly for Jacksonville. If Authentic LaMichael James Jersey Bortles continues to play well, Coughlin will have the ability to evaluate him for a fifth season without having to commit to a long-term deal. The option also increases Jacksonville's leverage if the team wants to sign Bortles to an extension, given that the Jags would have him under reasonable cost control through 2018 and then have the option of a franchise tag in 2019.

In the end, it might come down to a question of personnel power. General manager Dave Caldwell drafted Bortles, and you suspect his side of the front office has always believed in Bortles turning into a franchise passer. Coughlin arrived after Bortles struggled for several years and has no meaningful attachment to the pick. If Coughlin does have final say on football decisions, it seems less likely Bortles will be the guy in Jacksonville in 2018.

If Bortles does leave, some team is going to take a shot on his athleticism and success in 2018. He's an obvious fit for the Cardinals, who liked him coming out of UCF and need someone with athleticism and arm strength in Bruce Arians' downfield passing attack. The Bills, who covet a traditional pocket passer, also could look Bortles' way given that the 25-year-old is essentially the polar opposite of Tyrod Taylor.

I don't know that I've ever seen this happen http://www.broncosfootballofficialstore.com/Trevor_Siemian_Jersey before. The Vikings are going to the playoffs with three quarterbacks on their roster who will likely start multiple games in 2018, and none of them are under contract for next season. I'm also not sure who the Vikings will (or should) try to retain to take snaps for them. It's a situation that any team with a settled quarterback situation is happy to avoid, and any team lacking a quarterback would look at enviously.

Of the three, it seems easiest to eliminate Bradford, even if he arguably has the most upside. It's tough for the Vikings to commit to a 30-year-old with multiple knee injuries for any sort of long-term deal, and yet, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Bradford get meaningful guaranteed money on the open market. Teams with aspirations of competing, like the Dolphins and Giants, could look at Bradford as a starter if they dump their incumbents. The Cardinals have taken risks on players with injury histories before and have a need under http://www.officiallightningproshop.com/Ondrej_Palat_Jersey center. The Browns could even go after Bradford as a bridge quarterback to give whomever they take with the first overall pick time to hide from coach Hue Jackson.

It seems far likelier, on http://www.nashvillepredatorsofficialonline.com/Adidas-Ryan-Ellis-Jersey the other hand, that Bridgewater will re-sign in Minnesota, at least on a one-year deal. He's not going to get much playing time the rest of the way barring an injury to Keenum, so Bridgewater would be hitting the market two years after his last meaningful reps in a league that didn't really value him highly in the 2014 draft. His best bet is to Authentic Mike Richter Jersey rebuild his value in purple and gold before hitting the market in 2019 or signing an extension next year.

Keenum, of course, is the most difficult evaluation of all. A year ago, Keenum was a backup on one of the worst teams in football and could muster only a one-year, $2 million deal in free agency to be a clear backup. He also has an identical passer rating in 2017 to Jared Goff and a better Total QBR than Tom Brady. We have 777 pass attempts suggesting Keenum is an anonymous backup quarterback and 427 more implying he's a superstar.

What do you do with that if you're general manager Rick Spielman? Are you willing to pay in excess of $20 million to franchise Keenum and see if he can do it again? Do you offer him a Tyrod Taylor-style deal in which the Vikings can get out of the deal after one year if Keenum reverts to form? Or do you let another team take the gamble, re-sign Bridgewater, and try to convince one of the quarterbacks with a longer track record of success to come play with a perpetually dominant defense and two of the best wideouts in the league? Minnesota has so many mouths to feed on defense and along that offense that it might need to pay its quarterback next to nothing to keep everyone else around.
