Jets interested in Brady Quinn, according to report

USA TODAY Sports

Is Quinn the "competition" the team wants for the quarterback job?

Brady Quinn might get another chance to prove himself as a successful NFL starter.

The New York Jets could be interested in signing Quinn, according to ESPN. The 28-year-old quarterback is set to be an unrestricted free agent next month.

Quinn, a first-round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, hasn't done much in his five years in the NFL. He has been with three teams and has a 4-16 win-loss record. He's never won more than two games in a season.

Gang Green Nation thinks signing Quinn would be just a ruse:

Signing him would be a clear case of creating a fake competition for the starting quarterback job. It would prove the talk about making Mark Sanchez earn his job was lip service. Sanchez would easily beat Quinn out for a starting job. Quinn would pose no threat to Sanchez.

In 2012, Quinn landed with the Kansas City Chiefs. After Matt Cassel went down with an injury, Quinn started eight games. He led the Chiefs to a 1-7 record and completed just 57 percent of his passes for 1,141 yards. He had two touchdowns and eight interceptions.

In 24 games between the Chiefs, Denver Broncos and the Cleveland Browns -- who drafted him -- Quinn completed 53 percent of his passes for 3,043 yards. He had 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.
