How about Cam Beaubier, he is probably under contract but with Graves who probably could be convinced by Yamaha to let him out.

Jlo at a hefty discount rate

Ben Spies on the miracle comeback tour

Guy would still be marveling at the technology of the bike as the field lapped him.

Folger out for 2018

Going to throw this out there, because I am a fan and would like to see another Yank in GP, and while putting it out there, I do realize it has zero chance, again 0 chance of happening, but.. Josh Herrin would be fun to watch in GP on a Yamaha.

Hahaha, I bet he'd also say I have to build my own engine as well. Sadly wouldn't happen his girlfriend has just had a baby and he's given up racing.

Rea, I bet he'd jump at it.

Honestly I don't think Guy would be quick enough anyway, even to qualify let alone do the bike justice.

Rea probably would if he wasn't contracted to Kawasaki.

Spies would have been perfect but he is in the fucking hospital nursing a shoulder from a bicycle crash

Sounds like he is done to me. It's a shame because he has shown great promise. I would've loved to have seen Miller or Morbidelli on the tech 3 bike which may have been possible had Folger come to his decision earlier.

He's young married and they have a baby, that tells me all i need to know, how many riders over the last 50 years have died racing when they have babies at home, its quite a few.
Family has to come before your kicks.
