Want to play some quarterback musical chairs?Ive looked into my crystal ball to come up with some projections on starting quarterbacks for 2017. These arent projections for the starting jobs that will have mainstays back again. Everyone knows Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, Russell Wilson and Drew Brees will be starters, for instance. No, these are projections for the jobs?in which I think there will be a new starter, or jobs that?could have a new starter.Here we go, leading off with Buffalo, Chicago and Cleveland:New starters in 2017Buffalo BillsProjected 2017 starter:?Mike GlennonIm projecting the Bills to move on from?Tyrod Taylor?because I dont think they see him as an $18 million-a-year franchise quarterback. They could get out of his contract after the season for a small cap hit. Taylor is 14-13 as a starter in his career, and he hasnt gotten an endorsement from the front office or Rex Ryan, who might be out after the season. Taylors completion percentage has dropped from 63.7 percent to 60.6, and his yards per attempt are down from 8.0 to 6.8.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Panthers quarterback Cam Newtons concerns about illegal hits have been heard by the NFL -- and action has been taken.A person familiar with the situation says Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Calais Campbell has been fined $18,000 for his hit on Newton in Sundays game. The person spoke to The Associated Press Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the league does not publicly announce fines.Newton had a phone conversation with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday about his perspective on the hits he takes from defensive players while in the pocket.I got my point across. He got his point across. Thats it, Newton said earlier Wednesday at his weekly news conference.Newton said after Sundays game he didnt feel protected in the pocket after no flag was thrown when Campbell crashed into his legs as he was releasing the football.Dean Blandino, the NFLs senior vice president of officiating, said on NFL Network that Campbell should have been penalized for roughing the passer.You can see Campbell coming up the middle and hes going to hit Cam in the knee area or below; forcible contact, driving through with the shoulder -- thats a foul for roughing the passer, Blandino said on the show. We want our referees to call that. Well address that with the crews going forward.Before the AP learned of Campbells fine, Newton was asked if he thinks his concerns will be enforced on the field in the future and the quarterback replied, Well wait to see Sunday and moving forward.The Panthers visit the Rams on Sunday.Newton didnt provide details of his talk with Goodell, saying it was a confidential conversation.Newton did say he raised many of the same issues he had on Sunday when he blasted officials in his postgame news conference following Carolinas 30-20 win over Arizona. Newton said at the time he didnt feel safe in the pocket because officials were allowing defenders to take illegal shots at him.Newton said he just wants to be treated like other NFL quarterbacks regardless of his size.Illegal hits for me start in the pocket, Newton said Wednesday. It is funny how a lot of people have a lot to say. I know when I am running the football I am on my own. I understand that. Im not a dummy or oblivious to the fact that I run the football more than any quarterback who has ever played this game. I mean, duh. Im fine with that.In the pocket, thats all Im asking for, just to get ... thee same calls, thats all.ddddddddddddNewton said after his call with the commissioner he had a positive vibe.Anytime youre being heard, obviously, with a person of his magnitude, I respect that, Newton said. I just wanted to be efficient of his time and make sure I got my point across. I believe I did. ... We ended on good terms. We started on good terms as well. Nothing changes.Panthers coach Ron Rivera has supported Newton, comparing him to Shaquille ONeal in that he doesnt get the calls because hes bigger than other players at his position.At the end of the day, its not about special treatment, Rivera said. Its about being treated the same.During his first four seasons in the league, Newton benefited from 22 roughing-the-passer penalties against the opposition, according to NFLpenalties.com. However, since the start of the 2015 season no defender has been called for roughing the passer on hits to Newton -- at least not a penalty that cost the opponent yards.The Denver Broncos were flagged once in Week 1, but the penalty was offset because Newton was flagged for intentional grounding on the same play.Panthers tight end Greg Olsen has been saying for years that Newton simply doesnt get the same calls as other quarterbacks.I have commented on this a thousand times -- I think they should just enforce the rules, Olsen said. Thats not unreasonable. There are rules in place. Its not like were trying to install new rules. The rules are there. So I dont think we need to make this overly complicated.Rivera suggested earlier in the week the NFL may want to consider adding an eighth referee on the field next season to help protect the quarterback. He also suggested that teams should be allowed to challenge what they deem as an illegal hit on the quarterback.When asked if it is more difficult to call roughing the passer penalties with a quarterback like Newton or Pittsburghs Ben Roethlisberger, Blandino replied, Its the posture thats going to dictate the protection. We want our referees to be as consistent as possible, and quarterbacks have to understand that you get more protection in the pocket in a passing posture.And when you leave the pocket and youre in a running posture, youre going to lose protections.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
