The team has a special connection with the Sanders family. This was the side that recruited a young Deion Sanders back in 1989 and will look to acquire another Sanders. The youngster also looks forward to joining the Falcons given the close bonding of his father with the team. Moreover, their current QB Desmond Ridder is having a tough time with the time and they’re looking for someone with better gameplay.

New York Jets

Another team that comes to mind is the New York Jets. Their hapless season is going nowhere after a season-ending injury to Aaron Rodgers. Moreover, the replacement in the form of Zach Wilson hasn’t done well to the team’s chances. Therefore, the side is desperately looking for a potent playmaker to help them get back to winning ways.

Shedeur could well be the missing piece in the puzzle and can resolve the dilemma for the team. While Shedeur might not be a starting QB next year with Rodgers taking the responsibility, he can still be used as a backup.

Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings are one of the best teams going forward this year and have Kirk Cousins at their disposal. However, there’s a big lingering question for Cousins. The star player turns 36 next year and the side would look for a fresh player. Moreover, Cousins comes with several injuries, and his availability could become an issue next year.

Therefore, playing a young Shedeur would the team a world of good and finally break their playoffs jinx. Sanders can bring some new energy into the team and moves quickly off the blocks, helping the side make better strategies.

New England Patriots

Everyone knows what’s happening at the New England Patriots. They’re having one of the worst seasons currently and are looking half the side they were in the Tom Brady era. The HC seems hopeless as he looks for answers and once again Shedeur can provide the shining light.

He’s a player who loves playing in the big shoes and the Patriots just present the ideal opportunity for the youngster. Moreover, their current signings don’t seem to have that juice and have regressed after sporadic appearances.

Los Angeles Rams

Since the last two seasons, the LA Rams have been there and thereabouts in their quest for the SB title, and hence they need a major shakeup. While the offense isn’t the only issue they have at hand currently, the Rams would benefit from a new QB in their ranks.

My observation: Shedeur Sanders’ should wait for one more season

These are the 5 prospective teams that Shedeur can target for the next year. The big question looms if he gets an NFL draft. The draft might just come along given the stunning performances the player has had this season.

Personally, I reckon Shedeur should wait for one more season since he goes on to move into the NFL. He still has certain areas for improvement and could hone his skills at the Buffs. I think that playing one more season at the Boulder can help Shedeur analyze his strengths, and tweak out his weaknesses. Thereafter, the QB can go as a much better player for the NFL drats.
