Report: Jets Meeting With Brady Quinn To Discuss Backup QB Opening

Friday March 16th, 2012

The New York Jets aren't getting Peyton Manning, but reportedly, they've got their eye on another big-name quarterback who's a former high first-round draft pick. That would be... well, Brady Quinn. Sorry to disappoint.

CBS New York says the Denver Broncos' backup plans to meet with the New York Jets today. The Jets have also been talking to Detroit Lions backup Drew Stanton about a possible job backing up Mark Sanchez. Originally, they were in on former Dolphin Chad Henne, but the Jacksonville Jaguars signed Henne to a two-year contract yesterday.
