March is almost at a close and the NFL Draft is right around the corner.
It’s been an action-packed month for quarterbacks in the NFL.
From free agency signings to big time trades, we’ve seen it all in March.
With things slowly drying up in the free agency market, which three quarterbacks are now in the best spot?
3. Mitch Trubisky Signing With The Steelers
The former Chicago Bears and Buffalo Bills quarterback has a new home in Pittsburgh with the Steelers.
GM Kevin Colbert said it was a positive not having to give up draft picks to sign Mitchell Trubisky. Also said the moves they made in free agency won't keep them from drafting players at those positions.

He comes into town as the front-runner for the starting quarterback job.
The signing gives him a second chance at being the starter he never got to be in Chicago.
Many Bears fans blame the poor coaching for Trubisky’s troubles in the Windy City.
The Steelers give Trubisky the solid coaching staff that he never had in the past.
It will also show if it really was just the coaching that held him back as a player.
If it was his previous coaches that were the problem, then he could have a career year in Pittsburgh.
2. Marcus Mariota Signing With The Falcons
The former Tennessee Titans and Las Vegas Raiders quarterback, Marcus Mariota, is heading to Atlanta.
‘I’m excited, I’m prepared, I feel great and I’m looking forward to getting out there’ – #Hawaii’s Marcus Mariota signs w/ #Falcons reuniting with former #Titans OC Arthur Smith and the black & red of Pop Warner days https://t.co/55ZenfVGAH @MM8Foundation @AtlantaFalcons 🤙🏽 pic.twitter.com/4RU38pxwMx

He will take over the starting job left empty by the departure of Matt Ryan.
Mariota brings starting experience to the team, something the Falcons need.
The move gives him the chance to be back in the starting role yet again in his career.
He hasn’t been a starter since his days with the Titans.
The two years he spent with the Raiders saw him as a backup behind Derek Carr.
He would come in as a situational player throughout his time there.
But now he can return to his starting quarterback status with the Falcons.
Mariota can redeem himself from how Titans fans remember his last two seasons there as the starter.
He would go 9-10 in his final two years with the Titans.
He passed for 3,731 yards, 18 touchdowns, and ten interceptions in those two years.
Both he and Atlanta are hoping they get better results in 2022.
1. Jameis Winston Re-Signs With The Saints
The biggest winner in NFL free agency in the quarterback market is Jameis Winston.
Winston returns for another season with the Saints in 2022.
The Saints are hoping to have him back and ready by the start of the season.
He suffered a season ending injury during the 2021 season.
The injury was a left ACL tear that might delay his return to action in 2022.
However, seeing the Saints couldn’t land a replacement for Winston, they re-signed him.
This gives Winston the chance to pick up where he left off with the team in 2021.
That 2021 season would have been the best of his career.
However, his ACL tear would end that run for him.
2022 is his chance to overcome the injury and get back on track for another great season.
His last season saw him pass for 1,170 yards, 14 touchdowns, and only three interceptions.
Being able to stick with the Saints allows him to finish the job that he started in 2021.
