Five teams pursued Andy Dalton after the Bengals released him. One of those reportedly was the Jets.
Rich Cimini of ESPN reports the Jets “flirted with” Dalton before he signed with the Cowboys, and the interest was “mutual.”
The Jets need a veteran a quarterback and should sign one.
That leaves a question of whether the Jets can win without Darnold.
So the Jets likely continue their search for a veteran quarterback.
Jets General Manager Joe Douglas was an area scout for the Ravens when Baltimore drafted Joe Flacco in 2008. Flacco, though, had neck surgery six weeks ago and may not be ready for the start of the season.
