Jets bring back Brady Quinn

Thanks to Geno Smith, the Jets didn’t need an extra quarterback yesterday. But now they have a third, just in case.

A league source tells PFT that the Jets have indeed brought back quarterback Brady Quinn, a move which was expected since his release Saturday.

This way, the Jets got to give Quinn a chance to get familiar with the playbook last week, without the pesky complication of guaranteeing his salary for the year by having him on the roster yesterday.

The bigger news in their quarterback room will come tomorrow, when Mark Sanchez has a second opinion on his right shoulder, and that’s one that carries a much bigger financial implication.
