Exactly. Frankly, I wouldn't even mind the Jets giving him a look; we already have jack **** at QB, so why not buy a $.10 lottery ticket. If it doesn't work, cut him and move on. If he somehow manages to harness the talent that got him picked No. 1 overall, huge win.
The former is far, far more likely than the latter, but at zero cost, why not give it a shot?
