At times, the Jets quarterback carousal spins so violently that the round-and-round motion could make you nauseous.

Which leads us to the team’s announcement Monday afternoon that it has released recently-signed Graham Harrell and signed Brady Quinn.

Harrell was signed last week but Quinn was released from Seattle when the Seahawks had to get down to their 53-man roster limit and chose Tarvaris Jackson instead of Quinn as the backup to Russell Wilson.

But here's the thing: why would the Jets take Quinn now after Matt Simms played well in the preseason and seemed to lock up the No. 3 quarterback spot behind Geno Smith and the injured Mark Sanchez?

We don’t know who’s starting for the Jets in Week 1, and now, we don’t seem to know why the team needs four quarterbacks on the roster (unless Sanchez’s injury now is a long-term problem).

Either way, we can now say this that the team has signed Quinn. The Jets problems are officially ... solved.
