The 2021 NFL season has officially come to a close with the Los Angeles Rams winning it all. What will each team’s QB situation look like in 2022?
The 2022 NFL offseason is finally upon us. With the Los Angeles Rams emerging victorious, the rest of the league is now going to be focused on taking them out of that spot and getting to the top.
In the last two seasons, quarterbacks that have changed teams won the Super Bowl. Tom Brady and the Bucs won it in his first year with Tampa Bay and Matthew Stafford obviously just won in his first season going from the Detroit Lions to the Los Angeles Rams.
What can we expect in terms of QB movement in 2022 around the NFL? It’s either going to be really fun or a major letdown. Players like Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Derek Carr, and Deshaun Watson could be on the move…or they won’t.
For the sake of having some fun and predicting chaos, I want to take a look at an offseason scenario with maximum QB movement. Not necessarily trading every single QB that has been rumored to be on the block, but maybe going a little overboard in the trade predictions on purpose.
Let’s take a post-Super Bowl crack at predicting every NFL team’s starting quarterback for the 2022 season and beyond.
2022 NFL offseason QB predictions: NFC East
New York Giants: Trade for Russell Wilson
The New York Giants have done just about everything right so far in the 2022 offseason, haven’t they?
They brought in Joe Schoen from the Buffalo Bills as their new general manager. They made the predictable but strong hire of Brian Daboll as offensive coordinator. They have hired a pretty tremendous staff overall.
The Giants have multiple very early picks in the 2022 NFL Draft and are poised to make a big splash in the offseason, somehow.
The Giants and perhaps just New York, in general, are on Russell Wilson’s preferred trade destinations list.
If Wilson forces a trade out of Seattle, it wouldn’t be shocking to see him force it to New York where he could elevate the new-look New York Giants to title contention once more.
