    This is based on the assumption Mariota returns as the Titans starting QB in '19. I wanted to look at possible QB2 options for next year.

    Gabbert is under contract for '19. Releasing him leaves $500K dead cap but saves $1.5M.

    Here are some possible options for QB2:

    Bridgewater - will be looking for a QB1 opportunity. Will likely cost some serious moolah (got a $6M deal with the Jets before going to the Saints). If the Saints like him, I bet he never gets out of Nola.

    Foles - he might be a good option to be a QB1 for a couple of seasons while grooming a draft pick. If he takes the Eagles deep into the playoffs again, he might see a Keenum-type deal for a team like the Jags. If the Eagles keep him, he'll get paid $20M in '19. That's not happening.

    Taylor - I think this would be a good fit for the Titans in that I think he plays a similar style to Mariota. He was paid $16M this season. He's 29 so a 2-3 year deal might be possible but it'll be for a lot more than what Gabbert is playing for.

    Fitzpatrick - I don't see it and don't want.

    Siemian - not much of an upgrade, IMO.

    Osweiler - not much of an upgrade, IMO.

    McCown - not much of an upgrade, IMO.

    Draft pick - I don't see the Titans using an early pick at QB but they could find someone sliding they like on day two or three. I also don't see the Titans going into the season with a 3-5th round unproven QB as the #2 but I take them over many listed above.

    I think it could happen ... I think it wouldn't be as far-fetched as it sounds.

    Wentz gets $8.5m in 2019 ... Foles gets $20.5m in 2019. Is $29m for your QB1 + QB2 out of the question? 2018 saw 6 teams spend over $25m in the QB room (2 spent over $27m).

    Yep. Not who would you want, but who do you think it will be. I think Gabbert somehow sticks around as JRob addresses other needs

    If Taylor is available, I jump all over it. He upgrades Gabbert in the event of Mariota being out multiple games.

    If they decided to move on from Mariota in '20, Taylor can be your #1 as you groom someone the Titan draft in '20.

    Taylor seems like the best case scenario.

    Teddy still sees himself as a starter so I'd assume he takes a job somewhere with an easier path than here.

    Then theres Foles, who will command serious coin. With Mary making 20.9M I cant see JR spending big on QB2.
