Free Agent QB Brady Quinn To Reportedly Meet With Jets Friday

NEW YORK (WFAN) — The Jets’ search for a viable backup to quarterback Mark Sanchez continues .

According to multiple reports, the team will host Denver Broncos free agent Brady Quinn on Friday.

After a disappointing stint in Cleveland, Quinn, a first-round pick in the 2007 NFL draft, served as insurance for Tim Tebow and Kyle Orton last season in Denver.

Detroit Lions backup Drew Stanton will also reportedly meet with the team for the second straight day.

“I’d be surprised if Stanton doesn’t sign w/the Jets,” Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press tweeted Thursday. “They called him a few minutes after FA opened. He’s there tonight and tomorrow.”

Stanton, 27, didn’t throw a regular-season pass for Detroit in 2011.

The Jets were thought to have interest in former Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne, who signed a two-year contract with Jacksonville Thursday.

Safety Reggie Nelson will also reportedly meet with the Jets on Friday.

Jets fans, is Quinn the answer? Stanton? Sound off below…

    He is a good quarterback who got the short end of the stick both in Cleveland and Denver. Give him a chance to play what is the worst that can happen ? If he beats out Sanchez for the job so much the better for NY.

  • Joe Holland Jr

    Brady Quinn will be better then Drew Stanton. And after you sign Brady Quinn lets go after Michael Bush and Kareem Mckensie to beef up our offensive line. Anything but Wayne Hunter as our starting RT. IF you want to get rid of Sanchez leave Hunter as your starting RT and then you will need a good backup QB.

    we already have a good back up or even starter with McElroy. Great preseason before his injury. Good touch on the ball, can throw over the line unlike Sanchez who thinks he has to throw darts all the time and half of them get batted down. Touch Sachez Touch, Learn it or leave.

  • Jon

    Many NFL teams are making moves. Bills sign Williams and the Jets only move is to make an extension to their 3rd string QB (Sanchez). So much for players wanting to play for the Jets, well, those words come from Rex himself.

  • Peter

    I’d love to have him. He just needs a chance.

  • Hi

    He looks like tom Brady
