Brady Quinn is now an unemployed quarterback looking for a new home.
The New York Jets have released Quinn a short time ago. His contract would have become guaranteed had he been a member of the Jets roster at 4 pm eastern time today.
Now, the Jets are left with Geno Smith and Matt Simms at quarterback for tomorrow’s opener. But Quinn could be released by the team on Monday afternoon.
Should Quinn re-sign, he would only be on the Jets roster until Mark Sanchez is able to come back. Sanchez, who has been hampered by a shoulder injury, could be out several weeks.
Sanchez has been dealing with a bruised joint in his throwing shoulder. He left game 4 of the preseason with this injury.
Last season, Quinn appeared in 10 games for the Kansas City Chiefs. He was 112-for197 for 1,141 yards with 2 touchdowns to 8 interceptions.
Smith, the Jets second round pick in the 2013 NFL draft, will get the start tomorrow at home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
