Douglas can use the No. pick overall in the 2021 NFL Draft to select a new franchise quarterback. Or he can use it to build around current QB Sam Darnold.
Cap implications: $10.375 million savings, $1 million dead money QB Sam Darnold (trade): This all depends on what Douglas and new coach Robert Saleh want to do at the sport’s most important position. A huge decision. Cutting Darnold wouldn’t make sense.
They’re gonna go Zach Wilson with that second pick in the draft. Now mind you, they already have their first-round pick. They got Seattle’s pick this year and next year.
