Kellen Moore
Cowboys' Kellen Moore: Still expected to back-up Romo
Kellen Moore, QB, DAL
10:49 AM
News: Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he expects Moore to serve as Tony Romo's top backup in 2016, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

The Cowboys recently used a fourth-round draft pick on Dak Prescott, who will be groomed as Tony Romo's future backup and possible replacement. The team apparently expects Prescott to spend his first season as the No. 3 quarterback, but he'll probably still get a shot to compete with Moore for the top backup job. Offering neither running ability nor a strong arm, Moore is nothing more than a care-taker.

G.J. Kinne
Giants' G.J. Kinne: Released Tuesday
G.J. Kinne, QB, NYG
9:31 AM
News: Kinne was released by the Giants on Thursday.

A 2012 UDFA, Kinne has tested his hand at quarterback, wide receiver and safety since leaving college. He's yet to suit up for a regular-season NFL game.

Colin Kaepernick
49ers' Colin Kaepernick: Making progress
Colin Kaepernick, QB, SF
5/4/2016
News: Kaepernick (shoulder/knee/thumb) has resumed throwing a "bit," the Sacramento Bee reports.

The report adds that doctors are expected to medically clear the QB "by the end of the month or soon thereafter." As Kaepernick's health trends in the right direction, he remains with the 49ers, and now that the NFL draft has happened, a potential trade involving him seems less and less likely. At this stage, the 49ers roster five signal-callers -- Kaepernick, Blaine Gabbert, Thad Lewis, Dylan Thompson and Jeff Driskel -- with the stage set (for now at least) for Kaepernick and Gabbert to battle for the No. 1 job.

Trevone Boykin
Seahawks' Trevone Boykin: Signed with Seahawks
Trevone Boykin, QB, DRF
5/3/2016
News: Boykin signed with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent on Tuesday, Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com reports.

Boykin heads to Seattle as the only reserve quarterback after long time backup Tarvaris Jackson's contract expired earlier in the offseason. Boykin was an early favorite to win the Heisman Trophy last season with TCU after qualifying as a finalist in 2014. He recorded 3,573 passing yards along with 31 touchdowns and 10 interceptions even while missing time with an ankle injury in 2015. Boykin is a duel threat quarterback, as he racked up 612 rushing yards and nine touchdowns last season. His ability to move out of the pocket makes him an ideal candidate for Seattle's offense, as he matches Russell Wilson explosive play style.

EJ Manuel
Bills' EJ Manuel: Has fifth-year option declined
EJ Manuel, QB, BUF
5/2/2016
News: The Bills have declined to exercise Manuel's fifth-year option, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.

Since he was selected 16th overall in the 2013 NFL Draft, Manuel's start count has dwindled from 10 to four to two over the course of the past three seasons. His quarterback rating hasn't deviated much over the course of his brief career -- from 77.7 as a rookie to a career-high 80.3 in 2014 -- but his lack of improvement allowed Tyrod Taylor to wrench the No. 1 gig in training camp last summer. With Taylor bursting forth with 3,035 yards, 20 touchdowns versus six interceptions, and a healthy 568 yards and four more scores on the ground, he provides the offense with a dual threat that Manuel lacks. As a result, it was clear from the outset of the offseason that the Bills wouldn't commit the $11.4 million owed under the guidelines of his fifth-year option.

Analysis: 

Case Keenum
Rams' Case Keenum: Set to provide safety net for Goff
Case Keenum, QB, LAR
5/2/2016
News: Keenum will likely serve as Jared Goff's safety net, the Orange County Register reports.

Los Angeles has a glut at quarterback, with the No. 1 overall draft pick joined by Keenuu, Nick Foles and 2015 third-rounder Sean Mannion. It appears the team will trade or release Foles, and there don't seem to be any real plans for Mannion. After signing a first-round RFA tender (worth about $3.6 million), Keenum figures to compete with Goff for the starting job, though it may be a competition in name only. A three-year starter in college, the 21-year-old Goff figures to take the reins sooner rather than later. It will be a surprise if he isn't under center in Week 1.

Matthew Stafford
Lions' Matthew Stafford: Gets help up front via draft
Matthew Stafford, QB, DET
5/2/2016
News: Stafford got some help in the 2016 NFL Draft, with Detroit selecting three offensive linemen in the first five rounds, ESPN.com reports.

Addressing an obvious weakness from 2015, the Lions drafted OT Taylor Decker in the first round, center Graham Glasgow in the third and guard/tackle Joe Dahl in the fifth. Stafford won't have Calvin Johnson around to bail him out, yet it's still quite possible the Detroit offense will be improved from 2015. Stafford played much better last season after Jim Bob Cooter replaced Joe Lombardi as the offensive coordinator, making it an easy decision to stick with Cooter for 2016. Furthermore, the Lions signed WR Marvin Jones to a five-year, $40 million contract, and there's hope that 23-year-old TE Eric Ebron will take a big step forward in his third NFL season.

Robert Griffin III
Browns' Robert Griffin: Watches draft work out in his favor
Robert Griffin III, QB, CLE
5/2/2016
News: Griffin's new team waited until late in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft to select a quarterback, going with USC product Cody Kessler at No. 93 overall, ESPN.com reports.

After Griffin signed a two-year, $15 million contract in late March, it was widely reported that his addition wouldn't necessarily preclude the Browns from taking a quarterback early in the draft. Instead, the team traded down in the first round multiple times, eventually selecting Baylor WR Corey Coleman at No. 15 overall. A Baylor product himself, Griffin is likely thrilled about how the draft turned out, with Cleveland further bolstering its receiving corps by selecting WR Ricardo Louis (4th round), TE Seth Devalve (4th), WR Jordan Payton (5th) and WR Rashard Higgins (5th) in the middle rounds. Though he'll presumably have to compete for the job, Griffin is the favorite to start in Week 1 for a rebuilding Browns team, as he offers greater long-term potential than either Kessler or 36-year-old Josh McCown.

Andrew Luck
Colts' Andrew Luck: Working on extension
Andrew Luck, QB, IND
5/2/2016
News: Colts owner Jim Irsay hopes to sign Luck to an extension before the start of training camp, ESPN.com reports.

Even in the wake of a season marred by injuries and mediocre play, Luck has a rock-solid case to become one of the highest-paid players in league history. He recently declared himself healthy upon arriving at voluntary offseason workouts, and there haven't been any real signs of discord between the star quarterback and his employer. Luck will probably sign a mega-deal before the final season of his rookie contract begins, but either way, he'll be one of the top options at quarterback in 2016 drafts.

Analysis: 

Sam Bradford
Eagles' Sam Bradford: Missing valuable time with team
Sam Bradford, QB, PHI
5/2/2016
News: Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said Bradford is missing out on valuable experience at offseason workouts and meetings, NFL.com reports.

Displeased with his team's decision to trade up for fellow quarterback Carson Wentz, the 28-year-old Bradford is skipping voluntary activities while reportedly asking for a trade. Denver was mentioned as a possible destination prior to the draft, but any deal could prove difficult after Bradford signed a two-year, $36 million extension during the offseason. Furthermore, the Broncos selected QB Paxton Lynch in the first round, significantly decreasing the odds that the team would have interest in Bradford. Though seemingly still viewed as the likely starter, Bradford finds himself facing significant pressure, with the Eagles having also signed Chase Daniel to a three-year, $21 million contract in March. With such a crowd in the team's quarterback room, Bradford feels that he's merely biding time in Philadelphia while the team tries to replace him. Although he's correct, it's probably in Bradford's best interest to make peace with the unusual situation.
