Hartman is best suited to go to a team with a veteran quarterback. A situation where he can sit and learn behind a proven winner for one or two years would be ideal.

In this situation, he lands behind Aaron Rodgers on the Jets. If the Jets can make a playoff run with Rodgers at quarterback it could be a great way for Hartman to learn the ropes behind one of the best quarterbacks of his generation.
