Scouting Report
Assets: An accurate veteran play-caller. Really excels in play-action: can move in the pocket, has good timing, and delivers the ball in stride after making his quick read. Possesses good size under center and uses an over-the-top delivery to throw over defenders. Boasts a fluid motion and solid arm strength.
Flaws: Sometimes waits too long for plays to develop and gets rattled by the pass rush. When play-action breaks down, he's not the type of QB to make plays with his feet. Has a troubling tendency to throw big-play interceptions. Has always been prone to injury, and is now showing his age.
Career Potential: Former starting QB / solid veteran backup.
