Updated Free Agency Odds for QBs Jameis Winston & Cam Newton

Veteran NFL QBs still searching for homes

The NFL free agency period officially kicked off on March 18 and while most of the big names have agreed to deals with new teams, there are a few quarterbacks still available on the market.

DraftKings has updated their odds on three of the quarterbacks and which roster they’ll be on for Week 1 of the 2020 regular season.

Of the three quarterbacks listed at DraftKings, Jameis Winston is probably the most intriguing. With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signing Tom Brady from the New England Patriots last week, Winston thanked his fans over the weekend on social media.

Winston, a 26-year-old signal caller, led the NFL with 5,109 passing yards last season and he also became the first quarterback in the league history to toss for both 30 touchdowns and 30 interceptions.

The Los Angeles Chargers and Washington Redskins were both listed as 7/2 co-favorites (Bet $100 to win $350) to pick up the former Buccaneer.

However, Washington made a trade for Carolina Panthers QB Kyle Allen on Monday afternoon and DraftKings made quick adjustments to all of their odds. 

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been made the favorite at 5/2 odds (Bet $100 to win $250) while the Chargers remain 7/2. Washington is now a long shot at 16/1 odds.

The Kyle Allen trade to Washington also affected the odds for Carolina Panthers QB Cam Netwon. The Redskins seemed to be an ideal situation for Newton since the franchise hired his former coach Ron Rivera. Plus, Washington didn’t have much success with Dwayne Haskins in 2019 during his rookie season. 

Rivera apparently believes Allen, is the better option than Newton right now.

Similiar to Winston, the Jacksonville Jaguars (5/2) and Los Angeles Chargers (3/1) are the front-runners to pick-up Newton.

The other future prop at DraftKings surrounding a veteran QB is Andy Dalton. He’s currently still under contract with the Cincinnati Bengals, who own the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL draft and widely expected to take LSU standout QB Joe Burrow.

Dalton’s days as a starting quarterback could be over, which is why DraftKings has him listed with plenty of teams that have already have projected signal callers to be No. 1 on the depth chart.

The Jaguars are the favorites at 9/4 (Bet $100 to win $225) to obtain the services of the veteran.
