Scouting Report
Assets: Blessed with a great arm and a tremendous release. Reads defenses well. Puts zip on deep throws and out routes, yet also has touch and will take mustard off on shorter flips to outlet targets. Brings veteran experience and stellar confidence to the field every game.
Flaws: Will press and force some passes, and can be inconsistent at times. Not the best scrambler out there, and his mobility has lessened with age and injuries. Durability has been an issue for much of his career.
Career Potential: Aging star quarterback.
