As one of the 200-plus players who are restricted — rather than unrestricted — free agents in the uncapped 2010 season, Jets quarterback Kellen Clemens knows he has little to no leverage.
“The only thing that I can control is whether I sign that tender today or a week from today,” Clemens said last week.
Clemens chose to wait a few days, but Adam Caplan of Scout.com reports that Clemens has signed his tender.
As Caplan points out, the Jets now have an abundance of quarterbacks, and they may add one more in Mark Brunell, who could sign with the Jets but is currently being put on hold while the Jets attempt to lure Jason Taylor.
So Clemens is now under contract to the Jets. But he might not be much longer.
