3. Joe Flacco

Flacco spoke about how he would love to be back in Cleveland next season, but he will likely be on another team. How about the Patriots? 

As things currently stand, New England has Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe. Then, they also have the third overall pick, which could be used on a rookie quarterback. If the Patriots take Jayden Daniels or Drake Maye in the spring, it would be nice for them to have a veteran quarterback to lean on.

In a short stint with the Browns this season, Flacco proved to the football world that he can still play at a high level despite being 39 years old. The veteran quarterback completed 60.3% of his passes for 1,616 yards, 13 touchdowns, and eight interceptions.

The veteran quarterback didn’t play his best football in the Browns’ last game against Houston, passing for 307 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions. However, Flacco could be integral in helping a young Patriots’ quarterback room develop next season.
