“Whoever they bring in, I don’t care,” McKnight said on Thursday in the locker room. “You understand that? I don’t care who they bring in. They’ll have to kill me to take my spot.”
Garrard is out of the Jets’ quarterback competition. A person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Garrard plans to retire because of lingering knee issues.
Mark Sanchez spoke for more than 20 minutes about the New York Jets’ crowded quarterback situation, saying all the right things throughout. Yes, he believes he’ll be the starter, and yes, he looks forward to the competition.
Geno Smith is ready to work and confident he’ll become the Jets’ franchise quarterback.
The future is now. Geno Smith is a New York Jet and could compete with Mark Sanchez right away.
It’s hard to believe anything in the days leading up to the NFL Draft. But that’s what makes it all so much fun.
The most important Jet this season won’t even take the field. The chances of success for New York this season are not great, but they rest with Marty Mornhinweg.
“He’s doing an excellent job — the progress Mark has made over the past three weeks is definitely very positive,” Garcia said. “It shows that Mark is committed to bettering himself and getting himself more mentally prepared.”
“He’s on the roster, and he’ll get a chance to compete,” Ryan said of Tebow. “We’ll see how the offseason plays out, but right now Tim is on our roster.”
The Cardinals are expected to release quarterback Kevin Kolb, and if they do general manager John Idzik will consider signing him, according to a report.
Cromartie drops his base salary from $7 million to about $840,000 — with an $8.5 million signing bonus spread out over two years.
Despite not taking a regular-season snap in the NFL since 2010, the 35-year-old veteran is healthy and looking forward to trying to beat out Mark Sanchez and whoever else might be in the mix at quarterback for the Jets this season.
Following the announcement of the signing, the newest member of Gang Green tweeted: “Just made it official!! I am a New York Jet!!!!!” Garrard has a 39-37 record in 79 career starts, all with the Jaguars.
Newly-hired New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said Sanchez will probably have “just a little bit of a leg up” in any quarterback competition the team has this offseason.
John Idzik declared his first order of business is to review the Jets’ entire roster and decide who stays, who goes and who they need to come in and be part of the solution.
