A soon-to-be free agent, Rudolph is likely to hit the open market and could see what other teams will offer him.

In his new rankings with the Athletic, Mueller has Rudolph as the sixth-best quarterback in free agency ahead of guys like Joe Flacco, Jacoby Brissett, Gardner Minshew, and Jameis Winston.
