Just when you think the quarterback situation with the New York Jets couldn’t get anymore interesting–the team goes out and signs Brady Quinn with Week 1 of the regular season just a few days away.
There’s been plenty of questions surrounding what the future holds for Mark Sanchez and the Jets, but the signing of Quinn is certainly an interesting one considering the former USC star is scheduled to make $8.25 million in guaranteed money for the 2013 season. Over the years, Sanchez has received every opportunity in the world to prove himself as the starter in New York, but with the signing of Quinn along with a shoulder injury he’s been dealing with this offseason makes you wonder what the organization is thinking as far as the quarterback’s future.
The fact that New York was willing to draft Geno Smith in this year’s draft was enough proof that the team wasn’t completely sold on Sanchez and even though Quinn hasn’t been anything to brag about either throughout his career–it does make the team’s quarterback situation an interesting one. The team may be hopeful about Smith being the quarterback of the future for the organization, but there’s no telling what to expect from Sanchez at this point.
At this point, Sanchez may seem like the team’s best option to win games based off experience, but there’s no telling what to expect from him when it comes to this shoulder injury. Then again, with the current situation at quarterback–would it really be a surprise if Quinn somehow managed to work his way into the starting lineup for the Jets at some point this season?
