SJ - March 13, 2022

The NFL's quarterback market continues to be red hot.  After trades involving starting quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Carson Wentz, more starters could be on the move.

Deshaun Watson didn't start last season, but it's not because of his play.  He is expected to find a new home soon and another starter, Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, could be on the move as well.

Let's not forget Jimmy Garoppolo, the 49ers are trying to move him as well.  The Colts are reportedly looking at him as a possible replacement for Wentz, who they shipped to Washington.

The Colts also looking at free agent Marcus Mariota and Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins.

From Bleacher Report:

"The name I'm hearing the most as the Indianapolis Colts' answer at quarterback is free agent Marcus Mariota," ESPN's Dan Graziano reported.

Kirk Cousins is reportedly also an option, but it's not known if the Minnesota Vikings want to trade their starting quarterback.

Either of those guys would be an interesting move for the Colts.  Mariota spent last season as Derek Carr's backup in Las Vegas while Cousins had one of his best seasons in Minnesota.

It might come down to whether or not Minnesota is willing to move Cousins.
