New England Patriots
The New York Jets finally released their 53-man roster, being one of the last teams to do so. They cut one quarterback leaving four men in the quarterback position. Here is a list of those cut from the offensive skilled position and a short analysis of who remains:Quarterback: Greg McElroy, with injuryDoes this mean that McElroy will not be the Jet who will be the breakout player of 2013? The Jets released McElroy. They still have four quarterbacks on their roster. The quarterbacks who survived the cuts are: newly acquired Graham Harrell, famous son Matt Simms, newly injured Mark Sanchez and famous second-round acquisition Geno Smith. For the time being the Jets will carry four quarterbacks on their roster. The surprise is not that McElroy was cut due to injury, but that four quarterbacks are still standing. If McElroy is not claimed off waivers, the Jets could retain his services and put him on the injured reserve.While the New England Patriots rarely carry more than two quarterba...
BEST OF MAXIM
It looks like the New York Jets are looking to get younger at the quarterback position. They decided to release quarterback Greg McElroy in favor of Matt Simms.
A few minutes ago, #Jets released backup and former #Bama star Greg McElroy, source says. Had served as Geno Smith's mentor for months.

Simms had a very impressive preseason...
Lets face it, the best running back the New York Jets had was quarterback Geno Smith, but with one swift move the Jets updated their backfield claiming Alex Green from the Packers.
The Packers’ leading rusher last season was a third-round selection in 2011 out of Hawaii. Last season he rushed for 464 yards on 135 carries and 125 receiving yards.
Since Mike Goodson continues...
New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith is understandably expecting to be the week one starter after Mark Sanchez hurt his shoulder in the fourth quarter of last week's preseason win against the Giants.
The New York Jets have signed quarterback Brady Quinn, giving the team an experienced backup behind rookie Geno Smith.
Quinn, a first-round draft pick of Cleveland in 2007, was cut by Seattle on Saturday. With Mark Sanchez likely sidelined for the opener with a shoulder injury, it appears Smith will get the start against Tampa Bay on Sunday.
The Jets also cut recently signed quarterback...

QB Greg McElroy -...
Geno Smith has his offensive coordinator in his corner, and that just might help him win the Jets starting quarterback position by default.
Ian Rapoport was on NFL Network Friday, and reported that Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg prefers Geno Smith over Mark Sanchez.
Mornhinweg reportedly is a “big fan of Smith’s potential and believes he’s the better option, whether...
With New York Jets' quarterbacks Mark Sanchez and Greg McElroy hobbled by injuries, second year gunslinger Matt Simms has made a strong case this preseason to be the team's backup quarterback to start the 2013 regular season.
The Jets signed quarterback Brady Quinn on Monday.Fantasy Spin:Graham Harrell was dropped in the corresponding roster move. Quinn was one of Seattle's final cuts on Saturday. He's unlikely to help the Jets or any fantasy teams in 2013.
New York Jets fans had a sobering moment of clarity this preseason when they looked at their depth chart.
The Jets’ quarterback competition is far from over, even as the regular season inches closer by the day, but Rex Ryan may finally have his starter for opening day.
Geno Smith is likely to start for the Jets in Week 1, according to ESPN. The rookie quarterback has been inconsistent this preseason, showing signs of poise and accuracy from the pocket but also throwing three interceptions...
Greg McElroy was the odd man out in the New York Jets' crowded and still unsettled quarterback situation.
The team announced Saturday night it released McElroy, a seventh-round draft pick in 2011, with an injury as New York got its roster to the mandatory 53-player limit. He was competing with Matt Simms, who made the roster after an outstanding summer, for a backup role.
