As if the New York Jets quarterback situation could not get anymore stickier, today they signed former first round pick quarterback Brady Quinn. On Monday, the Seattle Seahawks released Quinn who stay was short lived.
To make room on the roster for Quinn, the Jets released former Texas Tech quarterback Graham Harrell, who was with the Green Bay Packers to begin his career but couldn’t win the backup job. Harrell only lasted not even a full week with the Jets.
The question is could Quinn possibly start Week 1? Maybe at this point nobody knows who the Jets starting quarterback is and will be. Mark Sanchez hasn’t performed well in the preseason and is possibly more injured than we all thought and Geno Smith has not looked like a top rookie quarterback.
Actually, he has looked worse than many people expected. He shows flashes of good and bad quarterback play. But the biggest surprise at the quarterback position has been Matt Simms, who has been playing great in the preseason and ultimately beat out Greg McElroy who was cut.
The Jets quarterback situation is far from over and it’s only week one. Whoever starts at quarterback for the Jets to begin the season will not be the same quarterback at the end of the season.
