sit there and waste his life
wedll rodgers signed for 5 years for 7.7 mil, Quinn signed for 5 years for 20.2 million and got 8 million guaranteed ... slight difference there even though they were both drafted late in the 1st round (brady 22, rodgers 24). derek anderson's year 3 of his contract might be Quinn's year 4. My guess is that will be a lot of money to sink into the QB position. If they keep both, I would expect DA to be traded before that 3rd season. I don't know the breakdown of how much Brady will make each year, but it usually escalates upwards with the biggest chunks being at the end of the contract.
The difference with Rivers is that he was paid much higher as he was a top draft pick. Brees was a restricted free agent. They let Rivers have another year on the bench before just letting Brees go. They obviously have no intention of just letting DA play this year (restricted free agent) and letting him go next.
I don't really think you can compare any of those situations. I am agreeing however, I think at least this year, Quinn will sit on the bench. MAYBE even the next year. However that 3rd year, that will be a lot of money wrapped up at QB and I think they try to trade Quinn or Anderson at that point. Just my thoughts...
