Robert Griffin III
New York Jets
In the modern NFL it’s rare if a team carries three quarterbacks. This season the Jets, Raiders and Redskins plan on carrying four. At least for now that is.
The Jets will have Mark Sanchez, Geno Smith, Matt Simms and Graham Harrell. I could see Harrell getting released once Sanchez gets healthy. They probably don’t want Simms backing up Smith in next weeks opener.
The Redskins have Robert Griffin III, Kirk Cousins, Rex Grossman and Pat White on their roster. I don’t understand why they kept White. Yes, he can help them prepare for teams with mobile quarterbacks, but that’s a waste of a roster spot in my opinion.
The Raiders will kick off the season with Matt Flynn, Terrelle Pryor, Tyler Wilson and Matt McGloin.

Wow, the Graham Harrell era in New York didn’t last long. Now it is the Brady Quinn era in NYC. According to the Jets twitter account: @nyjets: The Jets have signed QB Brady Quinn and released QB Graham Harrell. Quinn had tons of upside but still has not came full circle.
Several media outlets have reported that the Jets' new general manger John Idzik and head coach Rex Ryan are ready to "move on" from Mark Sanchez. The move comes as a bit of a surprise since releasing Sanchez will cost the Jets against the salary cap, but it is the right move for all involved, especially Sanchez.As a rookie in 2009, Sanchez played, well, like a rookie...

As Geno Smith appears to be the Week 1 starter, things have just gotten shakier for Mark Sanchez's hopes to start for the Jets this season.
This latest signing Quinn may confirm that the Jets fear Sanchez's injury is more serious than they initially tried to reveal, as a veteran backup will be needed if Smith becomes this season's permanant QB.
To make room...
The New York Jets may have no other option but to start rookie Geno Smith under center for Week 1.

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...
Rookie Geno Smith will get his second start for the New York Jets, as expected, when the team plays at New England on Thursday night.
Coach Rex Ryan says Monday that Smith, coming off an 18-17 win over Tampa Bay on Sunday, will play against the Patriots after he was mostly solid in his NFL debut.

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.

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.
