2020 Quarterback: either of the two or an answer in the draft

It seems the Raiders and the Panthers are looking to move Carr and Newton, respectively, while the Patriots and Chargers are the two teams with absolutely no answer at the quarterback position at the moment. Andy Dalton also appears to be a primed candidate to be traded, while Jameis Winston is the best free-agent left on the board, various back-ups like Blake Bortles or Josh McCown are likely to change teams as well.

In terms of the draft, that likely is where the Bengals, Dolphins, and possibly even Redskins, Chargers, Broncos, Patriots or the Saints may look for an answer at quarterback.
