Sorry, but no way. He is good but not in the same tier as those 4.
Why are people obsessed with Backup legends?
When will we all learn from from the mistakes of Matt Schaub, Kevin Kolb, Derek Anderson, Matt Cassel, Matt Flynn and Sage Rosenfels?
You do not invest your future in a backup. Tom Brady was an outlier.
Bridgewater for potential or JFF for trainwreck entertainment. The amount of savings on the salary cap would be huge with those 2 guys over Cutler, probably in the $10-12M a year range, and you get significantly upgrade your roster with that money. That's basically how the Seahawks got so good. They hit on Wilson and used the savings of not paying top $ for a QB to really upgrade the team.
Nice work if you can get it but banking on finding another Wilson type player in the middle rounds is delusional. Like it or not but 18 million a year with about 50 million guaranteed is the price for a top 50% starting QB. I don't love the signing for the Bears but they've spent decades looking for a solid starting QB. Ask them how easy it is to "draft a young QB to develop under a veteran."
