3. The Jacksonville Jaguars could acquire Detroit Lions QB Kyle Sloter.

If the Jaguars don’t want Mike Glennon to start but think that giving the nod to Jake Luton may be too risky, they could end up signing another quarterback. The current free-agent market is bare and none of the options they offer are better than the ones they already have, so they could decide to sign a signal-caller off another team’s practice squad.

While it’s too much to expect a quarterback that just a team to immediately make an impact, it happens from time to time and if the Jaguars end up bringing in another quarterback, it would make sense to bring 2017’s undrafted free agent and Detriot Lions practice squad quarterback Kyle Sloter. Although the fourth-year quarterback hasn’t played in an NFL game, he had an exciting college career with Northern Colorado.

In his senior season with the Bears, Sloter threw for 2,656 yards, 29 touchdowns, and just 10 interceptions. However, he wasn’t invited to the Scouting Combine and didn’t get his name call in 2017’s draft. The Denver Broncos would sign him that year but ended up parting ways with him almost right away. He’s already in his fourth NFL and is still waiting for a chance to start as he has been buried on the depth chart behind other established players. The Jaguars should strongly consider giving him a shot.
