NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The New York Jets have signed quarterback Matt Flynn to a reported one-year deal.
Flynn, a 30-year-old career backup, will serve as insurance behind Week 1 starter Ryan Fitzpatrick. His deal was in the process of being finalized Tuesday night, the New York Daily News reported.
In a corresponding move, the Jets waived wide receiver Arthur Williams.
Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan said Tuesday on WFAN radio that he expected to add a veteran quarterback to the roster.
“Anything we can do to make our team better going forward, we’re going to do that,” Maccagnan told host Mike Francesa.
