Falcons’ odds of landing Russell Wilson is the same as QB-needy Eagles

The landscape of the NFL has changed. Peyton Manning went to the Broncos and won a Super Bowl; Tom Brady went to the Buccaneers and won a Super Bowl, and now, Matthew Stafford is the latest quarterback to win a championship for a team that didn’t draft him.

Organizations are beginning to recognize that signing or trading for a quarterback is a feasible avenue to winning Super Bowls. This offseason could be the most fluid-quarterback market in league history as the landscape could look much different in 2022 than it did last season.

The Eagles, Commanders, Steelers, Buccaneers, Broncos, and Panthers are all expected to scour the quarterback market this offseason. Combine that with the bevy of quarterbacks that could be made available, and the NFL could experience some profound change.

Russell Wilson, Jimmy Garoppolo, Carson Wentz, Baker Mayfield, Kirk Cousins, Aaron Rodgers, Derek Carr, and even Matt Ryan could potentially be suiting up in different threads next season. Obviously, some of these quarterbacks are less likely to be moved than others. Ryan is much more likely to play for the Falcons than Wentz and Garoppolo play for their respective 2021 teams.

Falcons fans can expect Ryan to be under center in 2022, but oddsmakers clearly feel it isn’t completely guaranteed, as the Falcons have the same chance of landing Russell Wilson as the quarterback-needy Eagles.

It’s a long shot, but what a monumental shake up that would be if the Falcons somehow managed to pull it off.
