Chris Broussard: “I don’t think anyone will sign him as ‘their guy’ for next season, but I do think he’ll be in the league. Although he hasn’t played well in Carolina, he has shown a sense of maturity this season. We haven’t really heard anything bad about him, and he accepted the challenge of battling it out for the starting role in training camp. Even when he got benched, he handled himself okay... I could see him going to a team to back up a clear cut starter, like Mahomes. All of the pressure will be off him, and he’ll have a chance to learn and maybe get another shot down the line. We saw that happen with Mitchell Trubisky and Marcus Mariota.”
Rob Parker: “The landscape, as we know, is there’s always going to be teams looking for a QB. I think a lot of people thought Baker would never get this opportunity with Carolina after no one jumped at the chance to trade for him, so who knows? Maybe he’ll just have to go to a team as a depth QB and wait for his chance to come up again.”
