Penix goes to start out paying visits to groups subsequent week as he continues to work on promoting himself as a excessive choose in subsequent month’s draft. Penix informed ESPN that he plans to meet with the Giants, Falcons, Raiders, Broncos, and Steelers.

The Giants, Raiders, and Broncos have been seen as doable touchdown spots for quarterbacks for a while, however the Falcons and Steelers have popped up much less steadily.

The Falcons simply signed Kirk Cousins to a four-year deal, however he’s turning 36 and coming off an Achilles tear and which will make the prospect of growing one other quarterback an interesting one. Russell Wilson and Justin Fields joined the Steelers this offseason, however neither is signed past this season so including one other participant to the group is smart.
