Greg McElroy has retired at the tender age of 25. The former Jets quarterback announced his retirement on his Twitter account on Friday morning.
The New York Jets have signed former Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn, giving the team an experienced backup behind rookie Geno Smith.
The New York Jets have released quarterback Greg McElroy, paving the way for Matt Simms to make the Jets’ 53-man roster.
Here is my first and only crack at predicting the initial 53-man roster. I did my best to steer clear of similar lists from other writers, reporters and outlets. Without further adieu…
According to a report, it’s very likely that Geno Smith, the team’s second-round pick at this year’s NFL Draft, will get the call on September 8.
While Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith wait for Rex Ryan and the Jets to select a starter, Simms made a strong case to be No. 3 on Thursday night.
The big question for New York heading into training camp was simple. Mark Sanchez or Geno Smith? With the regular season closing in, the Jets are still looking for the answer.
Simms will “play most, if not all, of the game” against the Philadelphia Eagles at MetLife Stadium, the New York Post reported.
Harrell was released by the Packers last week after being beat out for the backup job by Vince Young. He had plenty of reps in the preseason, going 23-for-42 for 169 yards and an interception over three games.
Now what for the New York Jets? Well, they have less than two weeks to solve their big quarterback question before they face Tampa Bay on Sept. 8 in the regular-season opener.
Mark Sanchez had an interception returned for a touchdown, and Geno Smith left with an apparent ankle injury in the New York Jets’ 26-17 loss to the Detroit Lions in an exhibition game Friday night.
The New York Jets didn’t score a touchdown until their preseason finale in 2012. The team is hoping a new year — and a legitimate quarterback competition — will bring better results.
Rex Ryan and Marty Mornhinweg announced Tuesday that Sanchez would get the nod over Smith because he’s the incumbent, and Mornhinweg added that Sanchez “earned it.”
Who is gone? Who has arrived? Who is primed for a breakout season? Who might be on the chopping block? We’ll tackle all of that starting…NOW!
The real stuff starts when the team practices for the first time Friday, with all eyes on the two guys under center as the Jets try to decide on a starter.
