    They gave Leftwich almost $2 million 2010.

    You can't have Batch and Gradkowski, one of them have to go.

    Their time in the league alone makes that too much money invested in backup QBs.

    If Batch is resigned, it will likely be for the veteran minimum, and on a qualified deal, would count less against the cap.

    Here is the list of available QBs:

    Moore and, obviously, Flacco are gone. I don't like Campbell any better than Gradkowski. Fitzpatrick will want a shot at starting.

    So, who do you suggest?

    I would like if we signed Gradkowski, he always seems to play with desire, I think this would be a good move by the FO.

    2. Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
    3. (comp) Philip Gaines CB Rice
    4. Arthur Lynch TE Georgia
    5. Ross Cockrell CB Duke

    Still waiting to hear which backup QB you would prefer and at what cost.
