Looking ahead to the 2023 NFL offseason, we try and predict a handful of quarterbacks that could be traded, including Derek Carr.

Coming down to the wire this NFL season, it’s about that time we start looking ahead at some potential offseason storylines.

In recent years, fans have seen plenty of quarterback movement with a plethora of big names on the move over the past two or three offseasons. This coming spring, things should be no different.

With free agents like Tom Brady, Lamar Jackson, Daniel Jones, Jimmy Garoppolo, among others, the quarterback market is set to be an interesting one, to say the least.

Aside from free agency, though, we’re going to see some additional potential movement with quarterbacks on the chopping (or trading) block. There are a handful of names that could end up being cut or traded, depending on the scenario, and we’ll start with one of four guys on the list who has not had the start he’d hoped for coming into the league.

NFL quarterbacks that could be traded in 2023 offseason: Zach Wilson

Maybe the most obvious quarterback to leave his current team via trade, right now, is New York Jets second-year pro Zach Wilson. At this stage, it’s pretty clear that the Jets are going to move on.

The story for Wilson has not been a positive one this year, as we have seen him fumble away his press conferences while single-handedly instilling less and less confidence in himself by way of his teammates.

While the Jets seem to have cemented Mike White as their starter for the rest of this season, they may end up deciding to try for a veteran come the offseason. Their roster is well-built for the immediate future, and adding an experienced quarterback could be the thing that puts them over the hump in 2023.
