Not saying it's completely off the table, just that I'd be surprised at this point if it happens.
I don't understand the logic here. Yates and Keenum provide no veteran leadership to a young QB, any young QB. If you are planning on having any young QB via draft or trade or one from the roster it makes sense to bring in a vet. I hope Fitz starts a minimal number of games but he does have 77 games starting experience.
