Typically, elite NFL quarterbacks stay with a team for their entire career.
However, a massive wave of transition continues to sweep the game’s most crucial position.
However, the empowered players saw mobility as an opportunity to demand a better situation from the team or leave for greener pastures.
That said, several quarterbacks might be on the move after the 2021 season.
But of all the play-callers in the league, seeing these three playing for another team would be a huge shocker.
3. Kyler Murray
In this social media age, unfollowing someone is like ending a relationship.
The act may be subtle to some, but it amounts to cutting ties for the people who had technology all their lives.
Therefore, Kyler Murray’s act of unfollowing the Arizona Cardinals’ social media accounts and removing references about the team on his profiles could signify a rift between team and player.
Attracting interested teams for him won’t be difficult, given that he’s a quarterback on the rise that finished second in completion percentage during the regular season.
Arizona QB Kyler Murray has unfollowed the team & removed all Cardinals-related content from his Instagram.
The only recent content was a picture of himself at the Pro Bowl and a story re-share of a Mike Evans post that said "always wanted to catch a pass from the Texas legend." pic.twitter.com/ltcQTvJcPA

Likewise, he will only count a reasonable $11.3 million for the last year of his rookie deal.
Any team that might land him will save significant cap space, which they can use to sign free agents or top players to an extension.
But if the Cardinals are to trade him, they will be looking for a quarterback who can command their offense.
If this trade happens, Arizona might ask for one or two first-round draft picks to help build their roster by possibly drafting another quarterback.
2. Russell Wilson
There were talks before this season that Russell Wilson is looking to play for another team.
However, those rumors went nowhere after he stayed with the Seattle Seahawks.
While he does have a Super Bowl victory on his resume, there are some red flags that other teams must consider.
First, if Wilson signs with Seattle and then gets traded, is that team willing to absorb his $37 million cap hit?

Second, he has a no-trade clause, meaning that he gets to choose where he wants to go.
He will attract a market if the Seahawks decide he’s available via trade.
However, he won’t come cheap, and those teams must offer a combination of players and picks to land Wilson.
1. Aaron Rodgers
The Green Bay Packers are still Aaron Rodgers’ best option.
The division gives him a relatively easy path to the playoffs.
However, losing to the San Francisco 49ers at Lambeau Field during the Divisional Weekend puts his possible departure in the spotlight.
There’s a strong possibility that he will stay in Green Bay if Davante Adams remains a Packer.

But every NFL team looking for a starting quarterback will make their pitch to the Packers to bring Rodgers to their fold.
That said, Green Bay’s asking price for his services might increase after Rodgers won his fourth Most Valuable Player award.
The deal may or may not happen, but teams reportedly interested in Rodgers are the Broncos, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Indianapolis Colts.
