The Browns and Raiders both have top five picks in the 2014 draft and are rumored to be interested in drafting one of the top three quarterbacks coming out. But the signing of Schaub could result in them going in a different direction.
The Jets will mostly likely be interested in having Schaub compete with second-year quarterback Geno Smith.
Cassel started in six games and appeared in nine for the Vikings last season, completing 153 of 254 passes for 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions over that span.
Henne signed a two-year, $8 million contract Friday with a $1.5 million signing bonus.
Dalton has led the Bengals to three consecutive playoff appearances, but the team is 0-3 during that run, which has led to some criticism. But Esiason says back off because Dalton is legit.
"I never had a season like he had this year," Esiason said. "He'll be fine. The trajectory is like this, 9-7, 10-6, 11-5, 22 touchdowns, 27 touchdowns, 33 touchdowns. The guy is a really good player. Everyone just has to calm down.”
In 2013, Dalton completed 62 percent of his throws for 4,293 yards, 33 touchdowns and 20 interceptions.
Freeman is a free agent who spent 2013 with Tampa Bay and Minnesota. Freeman has a history from his days in Tampa Bay with current Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olsen.
The Raiders are looking for competition for Terrelle Pryor and Matt McGloin. Even if they draft a quarterback, Freeman can still compete for a job, and LaCanfora reports he will be "very, very cheap -- always a plus in Oakland."
The report says the Browns want competition for Brian Hoyer, and Schaub already knows this system inside out from his time with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan in Houston. The Texans are expected to release Schaub this offseason.
LaCanfora reports that McCown could also look at Tampa Bay, but he expects him to stay in the NFC North division and leave the Bears for the Vikings.
LaCanfora says Vick will not be back with the Eagles and is exploring other options. Buffalo, Minnesota and maybe even San Francisco will pursue him, but the Jets are where LaCanfora expect him to land.
The report says Vick could mentor Geno Smith and also has a relationship with Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg from their days in Philadelphia.
Over 13 starts in 2013, Henne passed for 3,241 yards, 13 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He is expected to compete for the starting job with either a rookie or a free agent still to be added this offseason.
McCown threw 13 touchdowns and one interception and posted a 109.0 passing rating in relief of the injured Jay Cutler last season. The Bears went 3-2 in McCown's starts.
