Brady Quinn re-signs with Jets, per report

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Former first-round pick Brady Quinn is back in the Meadowlands.

The Jets are welcoming back quarterback Brady Quinn to the roster following the team's Week 1 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Jets re-signed Quinn on Monday, according to Pro Football Talk.

The New York front office used a loophole that is common in the NFL, cutting the "vested veteran" before Week 1 and then signing him after to avoid guaranteeing the quarterback's salary for the entire season.

Quinn was originally signed by the Jets on Sept. 2 to add veteran experience to the roster with quarterback Mark Sanchez out with injury. He was cut on Saturday, but was not subject to waivers as he is a "vested veteran." Quinn started the offseason with the Seattle Seahawks, but he was released during final cuts in late August.

The Notre Dame alum has been in the NFL for seven seasons and played for five different teams. He was a first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2007.
