Why has Byron Leftwich NOT been signed yet???

I am COMPLETELY shocked that he has not been picked up yet. Yes, I know the guy is fragile, but he is still worth the risk IMO. He is better than at least 1/3 of the current starting NFL QBs! Plus he was named the UNDISPUTED starter in Jacksonville for the entire year up until 8 days before the regular season? What gives?? There has to be something that we are not being told. I simply don't understand.

BTW - If you are going to come in here and say that he has not been signed purely because he "sucks", please refrain from posting. I genuinely want to know what the hell is going on with Lefty's situation. Thanks.

Honestly, the timing was a huge bust for him. Most teams have already invested the entire preseason and training camp in a younger guy, teaching him the playbook, etc.

I think he would be an instant improvement in Cleveland, Atlanta, Oakland, but it is a risk handing a team to a guy who is fragile and has no chemistry with his teammates.

I heard somewhere (not too sure where though) that he was offered a deal with Baltimore, but wanted more money. Maybe that's an issue. Plus, why bring in a guy at this point who does not know the offense, the players, or anything like that? Like Andy said, the timing sucked:doh:

To answer your question without saying he sucks I'll ask you a question..........."What team other than Atlanta has a QB that is worst than Lefty in your opinion ?" Because honestly I can't for the life of me see anywhere he can go and not just be a back up and even have a chance to beat the starter out at any point this season.

Raiders ? They have Culpepper.
Miami ? Trent Green
Browns ? Brady Quinn and their not trying to win now anyway.
Tampa Bay ? They already have 4 back ups.
Buffalo ? Trent Edwards
Jets ? According to ESPN the Kellen Clemens Era is gonna start this sunday.

So to me this is why the guy doesn't have a job and to be honest I think Aaron Brooks (yuk !) would get signed before Lefty would. Just my opinion , the guy is a statue and makes VERY bad throwing decisions besides being injured a lot. HE HAS GREAT HEART AND FORTITUDE THOUGH and to me that's admirable but it doesn't win games.

He wants to be a starter, and it seems most teams are set on who is starting. But there are some shakey situations, so I figure someone will drop the ball and Leftwich will come in.
