The quarterback position always dominates the offseason rumor mill. Here we look at what each team with a decision to make under center should do.

One constant in the NFL is the quarterback position dominating almost all of the offseason chatter.

That is no different in 2020 with a host of teams needing to make a decision at the most important position in the sport.

It is always tough to know which reports to trust at this time of the year so, until free agency and the draft roll around, we will largely be left guessing as to what those teams will do.

How should they approach their quarterback conundrums? Here we looked at the best solutions every team from whom quarterback is an offseason issue.

Cincinnati Bengals – Draft Joe Burrow

Let’s start with a no-brainer.

Nerves may have been jangling among Bengals fans after recent remarks from Burrow suggesting he has “leverage” in determining where he winds up.

Burrow, however, calmed nerves when he said at the Combine that he will play for the Bengals should they draft him with the top pick in the draft.

Coming off arguably the greatest season by a college quarterback, the Bengals should not hesitate to select Burrow first overall and make him the face of a franchise in desperate need of a spark.

New Orleans Saints – Re-sign Drew Brees

The Saints’ decision has effectively already been made for them, presuming they want Brees, back, after he announced his desire to return for another season.

At 41, it’s acceptable to wonder how much Brees has left, particularly after another a poor performance in their playoff loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Eventually, the future will have become the now at the quarterback position for the Saints. The question is whether that future is Taysom Hill or a draft prospect.
