I don't see a downside.

I'm guessing they want a camp arm?


I'd love to see them snatch Greg McElroy from the Jets since they signed Tebow.

That's what it looks like to me.

I like McElroy. You may be on to something there..

Unfortunately I think the Jets want to keep him, since he threw about 900 passes in last year's preseason, got hurt, and they IR'd him instead of cutting him.

He started off looking like a lost rookie, but then came on strong as hell towards the end.

Didn't he set a preseason record for the most passes thrown by a QB in a preseason game? He threw about 40 passes in one half.

Not sure.

From wiki: In his first preseason game with the Jets, McElroy threw 23 completions in 39 attempts for a total of 208 yards and completed one touchdown pass.

The NFL records on wiki don't show preseason, so not sure entirely.. List of National Football League records (individual) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Canfield sure can't cut it... so we need a third arm for sure.

Can Brees throw left-handed?

That would get him $23million per year easy...

Duncan didn't say much about it. Just what I posted, basically. I imagine to have three arms in camp, instead of two, to fill the void of Brees.
