It seemed like NFL quarterbacks would be playing musical chairs this offseason.
Experts and even fans speculated that their team would either lose their play-caller or acquire a new one.
The market for quarterbacks is ripe, especially with free agents and potentially disgruntled players.
If that’s the case, the NFL media will constantly discuss the scenarios to fill in the website spaces or airtime.
However, Dave Kluge of FootballGuys pointed out that all the talks about quarterback movement may all be a mirage.
Anyone else get the feeling that we’re discussing all of these potential QB moves just for Aaron Rodgers to play in Green Bay, Russell Wilson to play in Seattle, Deshaun Watson to play in Houston, and Jameis Winston to play in New Orleans?

Kluge said, “Anyone else get the feeling that we’re discussing all of these potential QB moves just for Aaron Rodgers to play in Green Bay, Russell Wilson to play in Seattle, Deshaun Watson to play in Houston, and Jameis Winston to play in New Orleans?”
Kluge may have a point, especially because staying put is often the best decision of all.
Given the uncertainty that comes with joining a new team, these talented players would rather stay put and sign a new deal.
The Quarterback Market Will Have Some Action
However, this is not to say that the quarterback market during the 2022 offseason will be totally stagnant.
After all, NFL teams are already discussing Mitchell Trubisky more than the prospects in the 2022 draft.
Other quarterbacks like Gardner Minshew might get some interest from franchises as well.
Meanwhile, teams like the Denver Broncos, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Carolina Panthers will likely trade for a quarterback.
Therefore, it’s possible that most quarterbacks will stay put.
But based on how the market is unfolding, some signal-callers will be on the move.
