The Drew Stanton era with the New York Jets is over after only a week. The Jets announced on Friday that they sent the disgruntled, newly signed back-up quarterback to the Colts. Stanton expressed displeasure with the Jets’ acquisition of Tim Tebow because GM Mike Tannenbaum had reportedly already promised Stanton when he signed last week that the team wouldn’t add any more quarterbacks.

The Jets reportedly sent the seventh-round pick they received from the Broncos along with Stanton in exchange for a sixth-round pick from the Colts. Soon after the trade was announced, Stanton’s agent, Deryk Gilmore, took the opportunity to rip the Jets and Tebow on Twitter:

“Excited for the #Colts to get @drewstanton a leader, winner, and QB not a gimmick to sell tickets.”

Burn! In case you weren’t sure what type of relationship Stanton and his people had with the Jets post-Tebow trade, there you go. The tweet, however, has since been taken down and replaced with one that has a more chivalrous tone:


#Jets are a class organization for doing the right thing. I believe in my players and know what they can do. Glad it all worked out!

At least this has a happy ending for both sides. Let’s just hope Stanton and Gilmore both already know the Colts are going to draft Andrew Luck.
