Jets to bring in Brady Quinn for free agent visit


Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the Jets will host quarterback Brady Quinn for a free agent visit on Friday.

The Jets may be interested in having Quinn compete for their third-string quarterback job with Greg McElroy. Mark Sanchez is entrenched as a starter after signing a contract extension, and they are showing serious interest in free agent Drew Stanton, presumably for the No. 2 job.

Quinn has not appeared in an NFL regular season game since 2009.

    Brady Quinn visiting The New York Jets

    I already posted that some twenty two minutes ago!!

    So just how many back-up QB’s do the Jets need to pick from when Mark Sanchez has melted down by November, the Jets are out of the play-off race, and Jet fans are calling for Rex to be fired, and by season’s end they are releasing a QB less than a year removed from a multi-year extension.. There is a reason the Jets haven’t been in a Super Bowl since Namath.

    Now that would be one *dreamy* QB tandem.

  7. drunkenjunk says: Mar 15, 2012 5:55 PM

    lol Quinn won’t beat out McElroy.

  8. upyoursnfu says: Mar 15, 2012 5:55 PM

    Superbowl or Bust!

  9. patsfiend says: Mar 15, 2012 5:55 PM

    Sanchez, Stanton, and Quinn. Murderer’s Row.

  10. truthhurtstoo says: Mar 15, 2012 5:56 PM

    desperate is as desperate does… mark sanchez is entrenched as the starter?

    4-12 in 2012

    Ohhhh wow… Winnninnning 🙂

  12. sumoson says: Mar 15, 2012 5:59 PM

    Quinn thought he was better then Tebum … Im sure he wont think hes better then SANCHEESY EITHER

  13. roamingabriel says: Mar 15, 2012 5:59 PM

    Fins better hurry or he’ll be off the market!

  14. trollaikman8 says: Mar 15, 2012 5:59 PM

    Sanchez will declare this as another sign.

  15. cinfante54 says: Mar 15, 2012 6:00 PM

    GQ Jets

  16. thatsgoingtoleaveademarco says: Mar 15, 2012 6:00 PM

    I can’t wait for the GQ spread with Sanchez and Quinn.

    He should fit in well with all the locker room talk.

  17. bukes111 says: Mar 15, 2012 6:01 PM

    That’s your conclusion? Is Drew that much of an upgrade over Brady? It sounds like they’re looking at Brady for the #2 spot if Drew falls through.

  18. trbowman says: Mar 15, 2012 6:02 PM

    I’d hate to see Quinn in a Jets uniform.

    I’d also be scared, because he’s way better than Sanchez (and Stanton).

  19. 49erdynasty says: Mar 15, 2012 6:03 PM

    The Jets are clearly not content with having only 1 DB quarterback on their roster.

  20. nflfan555 says: Mar 15, 2012 6:03 PM

    As Dean Wermer once said ‘Fat, Drunk, and Stupid is no way to run a football team son’…

  21. Soulman45 says: Mar 15, 2012 6:09 PM

    Frist to say
    Good luck to you Drew Stanton it was great to have you as a Lion but it will be hard for you to become the #2.
    I know you will will do good in New York because You come from Michigan and played ball at Michigan State.

    Best Wishes

    Wonder what the expression on his girlfriend’s face (the one from Draft day) will be when he signs with the Jets.

  23. nflfan555 says: Mar 15, 2012 6:11 PM

    Let’s use a few remaining scraps of cap money on back-up QB’s great cccchampionssshippp

  24. 3yrsnfl says: Mar 15, 2012 6:11 PM

    Chad Pennington is the answer.

  25. dspyank2k11 says: Mar 15, 2012 6:12 PM

    Sanchez is just thinking, why would they do that? I thought I was the number one guy!

  26. azusadave says: Mar 15, 2012 6:13 PM

    Let’s take a look at Mr. Quinn:

    -concerned with looks
    -has unrealistically high opinions of himself
    -tried to throw his teammate Tebow under the bus recently
    -is fragile
    -consistently fails to live up to expectations

    Yep, sounds like the perfect JET!

     …this sounds like a Pats chat circa 2001

  28. bigtalldrinnk says: Mar 15, 2012 6:16 PM


    Next we will here ” Jets bring in JaMarcus Russell for a visit.”

    McElroy should be given a legitimate shot at starting. Shame the Jets gave Mark that extension…

  29. izelltoastjenkins says: Mar 15, 2012 6:16 PM

    It’ll be a Zoolander-like Sanchez vs. Quinn male model strutt off!

  30. ampats says: Mar 15, 2012 6:18 PM

    Doesn’t matter as Sanchez said ” the contract extension shows he is the leader of this team”

    No matter what unnamed team mates might say to Manish Meta .

  31. sd1024 says: Mar 15, 2012 6:32 PM

    This team is committed to cutting unemployment.

  32. bostonbman says: Mar 15, 2012 6:37 PM

    Patriots will be feeling the heat now! Not.

  33. cuda1234 says: Mar 15, 2012 7:01 PM

    OR Quinn could be #2 and Stanton could be out of luck.

  34. rickdiculous1 says: Mar 15, 2012 7:03 PM

    Why not? He’s better than that “quarterback” Mark Sanchez.

  35. amgdds says: Mar 15, 2012 7:05 PM

    Really bringin in the big “guns.”. Sweet

  36. joecb91 says: Mar 15, 2012 7:17 PM

    Upgrade over Sanchez

  37. emmac13 says: Mar 15, 2012 7:19 PM

    The Dirty Sanchez was picked by Jets with the Browns pick. Then Cleveland later drafts Quinn. Both these guy could do the LEGS pantyhose commercials like old Joe. Rex might like it to much. My leg bone is connected to my foot bone.

  38. tashkalucy says: Mar 15, 2012 7:20 PM

    The situation with Brady Quinn and his first agent should be a lesson for all young players.

    Quinn’s agent held him out of raining camp for more money. The kid hadn’t done anything in the NFL. By the time he got to camp he was too far behind in the system to compete for the QB job – a job he very probably would have won.

    Perhaps his entire career would have been different, and 4 years later he’d be an established NFL starter instead of a guy looking to compete for a third-string job.

    Then again, maybe the guy just plain stinks and would have been found out anyway.

    Now I’m done…….

  39. cannonballdookie says: Mar 15, 2012 7:24 PM

    Wait… give me a second…


  40. bronco1st says: Mar 15, 2012 7:35 PM

    Good, I hope they land him and he beats out Sanchez.

  41. usmutts says: Mar 15, 2012 7:52 PM

    I sure hope the Jets sign Quinn and then the Saints somehow figure out how to sign McElroy.

  42. randygnyc says: Mar 15, 2012 8:44 PM

    Quinn could start over Sanchez.

  43. nflfan555 says: Mar 15, 2012 8:50 PM

    J-U-N-K junk, junk, junk…

  44. wvfinfan says: Mar 15, 2012 9:06 PM


    Are you Serious? Really? lol ROFL ROFL ROFL ROFL….


    What bring in competition in Garrard, and Ryan Leaf… Both of which would beat out Sanchez..


    Quinn offered Rex Ryan, a deep fried turkey didn’t he. Which Ryan ate in one bite through his fat swollen jaws..

  45. northsidesteel says: Mar 15, 2012 9:31 PM

    I have followed Quinn since high school… great guy.. I would love him as a neighbor… or even dating my daughter. But they guy doesn’t have a pro arm. Any defense working against him never worries about routes longer than 20 yards max. If he could find a team that runs the west coast defense with aplomb he would be mediocre at best.

  46. pisano says: Mar 16, 2012 8:58 AM

    Good God, why not bring in Namath, or Vito “Babe Pirelli (sp) talk about grasping for straws, really, Brady Quinn!

  47. emmac13 says: Mar 16, 2012 4:44 PM

    Sorry northsidesteel but he would be more interested if ou have a son.
