A third-round pick of the Patriots back in 2008, quarterback Kevin O’Connell is probably almost done with his chances in the NFL after the Jets waived him on Tuesday.
The athletic San Diego State product was a bit of a workout wonder, but hasn’t looked impressive behind center as a pro.
The move is good news for Kellen Clemens. While there’s a small chance the Jets could keep two quarterbacks (and Brad Smith as an emergency option), Rex Ryan said on Monday that there’s a “strong chance” the team will keep Clemens as a third quarterback for $1.1 million.
See, that money they are saving on Darrelle Revis is being used for something!
