Gardner Minshew might be on the move soon.

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew has thrown 13 touchdowns against five interceptions this season, bringing his career total to 34 touchdowns against 11 picks despite minimal solid infrastructure around him.

While most teams would be looking to sign him for a long-term extension, Jacksonville is apparently willing to send him to the bench, as they are using a thumb injury as an excuse to get Mike Glennon and rookie Jake Luton some reps.

Minshew’s production will get him another chance as a starter, and these four teams could be a good landing spot if Jacksonville wants to draft a quarterback.

Dallas Cowboys
NFC East

The Cowboys went into the year as playoff favorites, but some disastrous injury luck, poor coaching, and an abysmal defense has them at 2-5 through seven games and starting their third quarterback in eight games. Even with all of that, Dallas could still conceivably be in the postseason if they get hot, but they won’t do that with either Andy Dalton or Ben DiNucci under center. If the Jaguars don’t want him, “Minshew Mania” might have a new home in Dallas.

While the chances of him ending up in Dallas will decrease dramatically if they can’t pull off a deal before the trade deadline considering the monstrous contract Dak Prescott is in line for.

However, this division is completely wide open, and it isn’t going to be won with a seventh-round rookie in DiNucci or what’s left of Dalton. Minshew might be enough to save Dallas’ passing attack this season.
