Best QB Free Agents

Recommended Posts




17. Brad Johnson

The Buccaneers outbid the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens for Johnson's services in 2001. That signing probably altered the early-2000s NFL. The former Vikings and Redskins QB, who signed a five-year deal worth $28 million, helped the Bucs' dominant defense stampede to the Super Bowl XXXVII title. The 34-year-old passer made the 2002 Pro Bowl and threw five touchdown passes in the playoffs. Tampa Bay has not won a playoff game since. Johnson was a four-year Buc; the Ravens' defense had to settle for Elvis Grbac and then Kyle Boller. 



Interesting article.

22. Ryan Fitzpatrick

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Fitz has played zero playoff games in a 15-year career and is an eight-team veteran. But he has started 97 games for five teams who have signed him as a free agent, consistently giving teams either a capable starter or a high-ceiling (re: his super-Fitzmagic-y 2018 Bucs work) backup. Fitzpatrick's 9.6 yards per attempt with the '18 Bucs is tied for eighth all time. Fitz has a losing record with all but one team that has employed him but somehow managed a 20-13 TD-INT ratio for the 2019 Dolphins, which sported one of the worst rosters in modern NFL history. The 2005 Rams draftee is set to play into the 2020s.
