“In my opinion, we’ve already drafted a quarterback, first round a couple years ago. So we’ve tried that,” Marshall said, via NFL.com. “I think he’s going to get a free-agent quarterback. I think he’s going to go spend some money and fix the position, you know, because it’s kind of a toss-up with these rookie quarterbacks. You never know. But the only thing about getting a free-agent quarterback is some guys will have to go. I hope everybody gets to stay, but that’s just the business.”
Marshall tossed out Kirk Cousins as someone they’ve played against who could be a good addition.
“I mean, there’s a couple guys out there,” Marshall said. “You know. We played against a guy in Week 16 that was pretty good. There’s a couple guys out there.”
