I have been thinking for a while about who would be the best back up for Cam, just in case something terrible happens. Now obviously i hope this player never see's the field with the exception of preseason games, but we have to be prepared. I have nothing against DA or Jimmy, I think both are/can be very good QBs. But i think that it would be beneficial to get someone who has a similar skill set to Cam. I kinda just want to start a general discussion to get opinions out there. here's mine: Terrelle Pryor.
After your done scoffing, consider this. Realistically, if we are looking for a backup, we will not be able to get a great player. I like Pryor because he has similar size, athleticism, and skills as Cam Newton. He is very raw, more so than Cam was a year ago. but we aren't looking for a suberbowl champ elite player here. He could run our offense in place of Cam without needing to alter the game plan or play book much. He is even faster than Cam and has a strong arm and big build that can match. accuracy. maturity, and decision making could use improvement, but for a back up QB he isnt bad. Being that he is young with room to improve and already has similar qualities to Cam, I think he would be the perfect back-up for our team. He also wouldn't cost us an arm and a leg to get, he also plays for Oakland, who has recently shown to be a good trade partner. Perhaps we could work out a deal with Clausen similar to Goodson/Campbell where both players get a fresh chance with some new scenery. I wouldnt mind giving them Pickles and a low draft pick or 1 or 2 back ups at another position.
What do you guys think?
