Countdown to Training Camp: Quarterbacks

Recommended Posts

Regarding the backups... 

Backup quarterbacks P.J. Walker and Will Grier return.

Walker was the choice to start a game last year when Bridgewater was injured, and he led them to a win against the Lions (technically speaking). The margin of error for any backup quarterback is small, so turnovers can be killers. Walker threw a couple of interceptions that day against Detroit, and three more in a relief stint in the finale, so being a known commodity to the coaching staff doesn't come with a lifetime appointment.

Grier was a third-round pick in 2019, who hasn't had the chance to play beyond being thrown into a grease-fire as a rookie. Having an actual preseason this year will be helpful for both of them, as they haven't gotten many live reps with which to prove anything.

And whether a new face could be brought in... 

If this is the group they're going to take to camp, or stick with.

At a certain point, only having three quarterbacks throwing passes in practice starts to overwork the guys doing the throwing. A fourth one for camp is customary, and something they haven't had all offseason.

There has been some discussion of bringing another quarterback in, but they haven't done so yet.
