Anderson consistently is considered one of the better backups in the NFL

Derek Anderson is a former Pro Bowler who has proven he can step in and replace starter Cam Newton, at least for a few games. Anderson was 2-0 as the starter for Newton during the 2014 season, albeit both wins came against a not-so-good Tampa Bay team. Because of his experience and ability to efficiently run the offense, Anderson consistently is considered one of the better backups in the NFL. -- David Newton Women's Reebok Mark Streit Authentic White Away NHL Jersey: Pittsburgh Penguins #32Brock Osweiler helped the Broncos get to the Super Bowl in 2015, when he made seven starts for the injured Peyton Manning. Manning replaced Osweiler in the regular-season finale that year and started all of the team's postseason games en route to the Super Bowl 50 victory. The Broncos believed they were signing that quarterback just before the regular season -- not the quarterback who went on to struggle with the Texans and Browns before ending up back in Denver. Osweiler knows Mike McCoy's offense and has shown decisiveness as well as the arm the Broncos remember in practices, and they believe he could get them wins they would need if Trevor Simian were injured. The Broncos also have former first-round pick Paxton Lynch on the roster, but he is still working his way back from a preseason shoulder injury. -- Jeff Legwold Chad Henne has played in two games and thrown just two passes since being benched for Blake Bortles at halftime of Week 3 in 2014. However, he has started 53 games in his career and played in 66 and has 58 touchdown passes and 63 interceptions, so he at least he has significant experience. Coach Doug Marrone opened up the competition for a week during the preseason, but Bortles held on to the job. That shows that Marrone has enough confidence in Henne to make a change if Bortles really struggles. -- DiRocco Kellen Clemens has been the backup for Philip Rivers for four seasons and knows the offense well. The University of Oregon product is 8-13 as a starter and could get the Chargers through a rough patch if Rivers were unavailable for a few games. -- Eric Williams Matt Moore replaced injured starter Ryan Tannehill in 2016 and won two of Miami's final three games to get to the playoffs. Some Dolphins fans are clamoring for Moore to replace current starter Jay Cutler, but the team isn't budging. -- James Walker Chase Daniel hasn't been able to establish himself as a starter in his nine NFL seasons, but he has been a coveted backup in three spots. The 31-year-old spent his first four seasons in New Calle Jarnkrok Jersey Orleans before he branched out to Kansas City and Philadelphia, even making two starts with the Chiefs. When Daniel was available again this offseason, the Saints re-signed him because they considered him an upgrade to another solid veteran backup, Luke McCown. -- Mike Triplett The Raiders have already taken a test ride with EJ Manuel. Now, this is not to suggest Manuel is the second coming of Jim Plunkett, who came off the bench to lead the Raiders to a title in Super Bowl XV after Dan Pastorini went down, but Manuel was serviceable against the Ravens in Week 5, completing 13 of 26 passes for 159 yards and a touchdown without an interception. Plus, he has already been a starter in the NFL. -- Paul Gutierrez The Eagles know Nick Foles has the ability to be a competent starter because they've seen him do it. They drafted him in the third round of the 2012 draft and watched him put together an improbable 2013 season (27 touchdowns and two interceptions) before coming back down to earth. He ended up Calle Jarnkrok Jersey as a backup in Kansas City under his old coach Andy Reid, operating in a system similar to the one Doug Pederson employs. He knows Philly, and he knows the offense.
