Report: Jets to release Brady Quinn
Only five days after signing him as the fourth quarterback on the roster, the Jets reportedly will release Brady Quinn.
It didn’t take long for the Jets to realize that Brady Quinn would NOT be the team’s quarterback savior this year. In fact, they no longer want him around and will release him back into free agency, according to ESPN.
The Jets signed Quinn only five days ago, and, in the process, released Graham Harrell. Quinn was the fourth quarterback on the roster behind Geno Smith, Mark Sanchez and Matt Simms. For the record, we still don’t know how long Sanchez will be out with a shoulder injury.
This is the second time Quinn has been cut this preseason. He previously was in Seattle, but Tarvaris Jackson beat him out for the No. 2 job.
Quinn, though, might not be gone for long.
Saves the guarantee. Likely bring him back soon. RT @AdamSchefter: Jets are releasing QB Brady Quinn today.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) September 7, 2013
The reason for releasing him and then re-signing him after Week 1 is so that the team wouldn't have to guarantee a full year's salary for Quinn.
