Blaine Gabbert – Gabbert is on his fifth team with a career record of 13-35 as a starter.
Jake Locker / Christian Ponder – Both were out of the league after the 2014 season.
Robert Griffin, III – Griffin had an amazing rookie season, then went 7-20 as a starter afterward, while being out of the league in 2015 & 2017.
Ryan Tannehill – Tannehill went 42-46 in his first six seasons as a starter before finding himself in Tennesee and going 18-8 since 2019.
