u
He is a big boy and knows how football works. He has said it many times. He knows a third round pick isn't going to take his job until he is ready to hang up the cleats.
I think by picking a QB in the third the organization is telling him that he is still the man and will be as long as he wants. Drew is not an idiot, he knows for a team to keep winning they have to prepare for the future.
Drew likes competition and this wont be any different than him competing with any backup.

I dont think he has 4 years. I think he has 2 maybe 3 left with this organization. By then hopefully next in line will be ready.
I promise you Drew wont be in the corner sucking his thumb acting all butt hurt because of this.

You will cry over Drews retirement for exactly 8 weeks if we are 8-0 under the next QB.

His contract ends in two seasons, his production may not warrant the contract he may want to sign a new one. It'd be nice to have a backup plan in place rather than be left out in the cold, that's all I'm sayin'
I agree. I just don't see Grayson as the guy. This draft didn't have a great quarterback in it. Winston might be the only one who had all the tools, but we all know the story with him.

I am all for having a plan for the future, but to me you need to be all in like the packers drafting Rodgers when they still have a productive Brett Favre. Rodgers sat a couple years, and you can say that helped him learn, but he also had first round talent. Drafting a guy like Grayson and letting him sit is little more of a sure thing to me than the guy we already have in Ryan Griffin. I just don't see it with this guy. But we spent a 3rd rounder on him, so I hope I'm wrong.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.
