We don't know how he ranked the QBs or what kind of weighting he used for the different categories, if any. And he didn't mention numbers for the "veterans needed to be released" category.

He talked about this at length on the radio and from what it seemed he put a big emphasis on how many players returning and how many significant players were under 5 years experience.

If you add up the ranks on what is available on the CBS site, here's what you get:

Seahawks: 12
49ers: 14
Patriots: 14
Packers: 16
Broncos: 22
