2. Colt McCoy
Chad Henne and Blaine Gabbert have proven you can carve a niche as a backup quarterback in the NFL. Chase Daniels is another such example but the first two were anoited as potential starters in Jackosnville only to fall flat. Going back to the original point, there's a market for signal-callers who have experience and can take on the role mentor but don't have the talent to play. Colt McCoy is one of those players.
Early in his career, McCoy was seen as a potential franchise quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. Once he proved he wasn't a starting-caliber players, the 2010 third-round pick spent years holding the clipboard for the San Francisco 49ers, the Washington Commanders and more recently the Arizona Cardinals.
Make no mistake, McCoy could play, and is a fine option as long as you don't expect him to take your team to the Super Bowl. In Jacksonville though, he would serve as the No. 2 quarterback behind C.J. Beathard. While he would need to learn the playbook, years of experience should help him in the task, having seen pretty much every imaginable defense.
The Arizona Cardinals released McCoy before the start of the 2023 season, and he's already started thinking about his future. That said, he's not opposed to returning to the NFL, having tried out for the Minnesota Vikings in October. Since he's not officially retired, the Jags could lure him back into returning to the gridiron.
