Jets land WR Quinton Patton after visit

There was little in the 2016 Jets passing game to tantalize free-agent wide receivers this spring, the trio of Ryan Fitzpatrick, Bryce Petty and Geno Smith combining for a league-low 67.6 team quarterback rating. But the NFL is a relationship business. One of Quinton Patton’s led him to New York. The former Niners wide receiver has signed with the Jets,…

The Jets are one of the few remaining teams still searching for a starting quarterback, and Jay Cutler is one of the few remaining quarterbacks who’s capable of starting and looking for work.

Could Jets end up settling for a return of Geno Smith at quarterback?

Last year, the Jets spent months in quarterback limbo before finally agreeing to terms to bring back Ryan Fitzpatrick as their starter.

Geno Smith: I’ve gotten better behind the scenes

Quarterback Geno Smith got a chance to return to the Jets starting lineup during the 2016 season, but there wouldn’t be a storybook ending to his trip back up the depth chart. Smith tore his ACL in the first half of an October start against the Ravens that marked his first turn with the first…

Ryan Fitzpatrick’s contract voids Friday

The Ryan Fitzpatrick era in New York has ended. There was one? Actually, there was. Fitzpatrick played at a high level in 2015, his first season with the team. He played so well (despite not becoming the starter until Geno Smith’s jaw was broken) that team and player couldn’t work out a mutually-acceptable contract for…

Brandon Marshall won’t make any QB suggestions for Jets this year

During the long spell between the end of the 2015 season and the Jets’ agreement with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to return for the 2016 season, there was no shortage of people sharing their opinions about what the team should do at the position.

Bill O’Brien not ready to declare Brock Osweiler his 2017 starter

Texans coach Bill O’Brien benched Brock Osweiler this year, and he only got his job back when the backup got a concussion. So it makes sense that O’Brien isn’t ready to declare Osweiler his starter for next season. Via Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com, O’Brien stalled when asked about his quarterback’s status Monday. “Before I talk about those…
