The Jets are adding another quarterback to the mix.
Brady Quinn, who was cut by the Seahawks on Monday, will sign with the Jets today. Quinn has previously played for the Browns, Broncos and Chiefs. The Jets have also announced that they are releasing backup quarterback Graham Harrell, who lasted less than a week with the team.
The Jets still haven’t named their starting quarterback after a lengthy competition between Geno Smith and Mark Sanchez, but the shoulder injury suffered by Sanchez in the preseason likely makes Smith the favorite to start for the Jets when they open the season on Sunday.
(Side note: Isn’t it fun that we’re now talking about real, live NFL games that will be happening on Sunday?)
The Jets already had a crowded quarterback situation, and they’ve praised the work of backup quarterback Matt Simms. But they apparently thought they needed even more help at the position, and Quinn has found a new home.
