Found January 29, 2013 on AFC East Daily:
In the eighth paragraph of his Monday story about the New York Jets' plans to bring in competition for Mark Sanchez, Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger had a small tidbit about Gang Green having "very exploratory, informal" discussions about JaMarcus Russell.So of course, ProFootballTalk brought it to the forefront. (photo: The Brit_2, Flickr)Orr later tweeted the following: "Relax people, as I said in here, talks RE: Russell were very informal," before responding "Exactly" to the notion that PFT was deceptive in their representation of his report.Russell will not be a Jet this offseason, and I don't need a "source" to make that statement. Russell has zero chance of partaking in a legitimate quarterback competition for any NFL team. He's that bad.Whenever any player or prospect becomes available at any given time, every team in the NFL will in some way "explore" the thing, whether that means simply writing down a note ab...

Jets GM: Sanchez will have competition

New York Jets general manager John Idzik was groomed in an organization built on the premise of competition bulding contenders, an idea he's ready to introduce in his first days on the job with his new team.

Jets interested in Jamarcus Russell?

Could Jamarcus Russell be an option at quarterback for the New York Jets? (Credit: Associated Press) After the debacle that was the New York Jets quarterbacking situation in 2012, it’s no surprise that the team is looking to add to the competition in 2013.

AHAHAH Jets AHAHA Consider AHAHA JAMARCUS RUSELL AHAHAHAHAHA

ESPN - AFC East Blog Few things surprise me anymore when covering the NFL. But the Newark Star-Ledger's report of the Jets having "exploratory" discussions regarding quarterback JaMarcus Russell is one of those instances. Russell quickly flamed out as a No. 1 overall pick in 2007. He had weight problems, work ethic questions and other issues during his three-year...

Tannenbaum: I was responsible for Tebow trade, Sanchez contract

Mike Tannenbaum spoke to reporters for the first time Tuesday since being fired by the New York Jets on New Year's Eve.

Jets seek to continue comedy of errors at QB
