I think they'll give Heiniecke a chance first.

There will be plenty of players available for USFL - Is there a good website for PS players or camp players that didn't make it? Assuming USFL plays, and I think they will.

For now its all CFB and NFL.

It's hard because any website that lists available free agents will focus on veterans, the kinds of players who wouldn't necessarily be on the USFL's radar. Figuring out who is out there who WOULD be on the USFL's radar would take quite a bit of legwork. I'd start by checking the list of NFL tryouts each day during the week.

Not a complete list but this is who I have come up with. Mostly practice squad qbs with maybe some NFL game experience from the last couple years, who is currently available. No particular order.

Jake Dolegala, David Fales, Alex McGough, Chad Kelly, Clayton Thorson, Tyler Bray, Danny Etling, Anthony Gordon, Eric Dungey, Joe Callahan, Luke Falk, Connor Cook, Nick Fitzgerald, Ryan Finley.

I made a separate list of available veterans who have more NFL game experience.


Cam Newton, Robert Griffin III, Blake Bortles, Matt Moore, Kevin Hogan, DeShone Kizer, Cody Kessler, Joe Webb, Drew Stanton.

And finally a list of qbs that have played in the XFL,AAF, or TSL. I would think a number of these names would be on the USFL target list because of past relationships and willingness to play for free or a lower amount of pay.

Brandon Silvers, Jordan Ta’amu, Luis Perez, Philip Nelson, Landry Jones, Aaron Murray, Quentin Flowers, Cardale Jones, Ryan Mallett, Ryan Willis, Bryan Scott. And who knows, maybe Matt McGloin will give it one more try!!!

Matt Moore is 37 years old. It's highly unlikely any spring league will sign a QB approaching 40, especially one who has only played in the NFL.

Also Cam won't play Spring Football. He'll want to play in the NFL.

Yes, I agree that Cam Newton won’t play in the USFL. I was just trying to list the availabile veterans currently available. I would seriously doubt RGIII would play as well. I figured someone would point out that I left them off the list so I decided to include them. As far as anyone else, who knows how they may want their career to end? It’s very possible a good number of veterans wouldn’t be interested to play in the USFL but some could jump at the chance to play one last season.

Also, one name I realized I accidentally skipped over is JT Barrett. He played in the TSL a few seasons ago. I always thought he could be a very dynamic player if given the right opportunity.

I still think it's highly unlikely that the USFL will sign a QB approaching 40, which is why Matt Moore should not be an option.
