The New York Jets have signed quarterback Brady Quinn, the team announced on Monday. The 28-year-old will fill out the Jets' quarterback core of Geno Smith and Mark Sanchez after the Jets released backups Greg McElroy and Graham Harrell.
Quinn, selected with the 22nd overall pick by the Cleveland Browns in the 2007 NFL draft, was released by the Seattle Seahawks over the weekend after losing the backup job to Tavaris Jackson. Quinn saw limited action in three preseason games with the Seahawks where he threw for 271 yards with two touchdowns. This will be Quinn's third team in three years after faltering with the Browns before moving on to the Denver Broncos in 2010 and the Kansas City Chiefs in 2012. Quinn started 10 games for the Chiefs last season, throwing for 1,141 yards with only two touchdowns against eight interceptions.
