It’s been an interesting offseason for the New York Jets as they look to bounce back from a disappointing 2012 season and one of the main questions still remaining is whether or not the team will make a move to acquire quarterback Kevin Kolb. The former Arizona Cardinals quarterback was recently released by the team after two disappointing seasons, but the Jets have expressed interest for a few weeks now to give Mark Sanchez some competition.
Of course, nothing has happened as of yet–leaving many wondering whether or not the team is still interested in bringing Kolb on board next year.
Kolb may have been a disappointment over the last two seasons, but Sanchez hasn’t been anything to brag about either. In fact, there were times during the 2012 season in which it seemed like Rex Ryan would replace Sanchez at quarterback, but he ended up sticking with him for the rest of the season.
As crazy as it sounds, the addition of Kolb may be just what Sanchez needs to finally turn things around considering the Jets haven’t had many other options to replace him at quarterback. While Tim Tebow is on the roster for now, New York also brought veteran quarterback David Garrard on board for the 2013 season.
If anything, this may be a message by the Jets to Sanchez that his job isn’t guaranteed and if he doesn’t turn things around soon–he could end up being replaced sooner rather than later as the Jets may end up getting tired of giving him chances to prove himself as a starter.
