It has been a rough season for Graham Harrell.
He has been signed by two NFL teams this offseason – the New York Jets and Green Bay Packers – and was cut by them both in pretty quickly.
In Green Bay, he lost out to Vince Young, who was cut yesterday. Tt looks like rookie QB B.J. Coleman will be the 2013 back-up for Aaron Rodgers. Now in NY, he and Greg McElroy have been cut in favor of Mark Sanchez, Geno Smith, and Matt Simms.
Now the Jets have signed former Notre Dame QB Brady Quinn. This does not bode well for Sanchez, who is due a guaranteed $8.25 million this season. So they would still take a big salary cap hit, but they would get rid of a huge source of controversy, assuming they wish to move forward with Geno as their starter.
From my understanding, Quinn will act as a non-competitor and as a mentor for Smith. This is similar how Mark Brunell was the mentor for a younger Mark Sanchez.
Whatever the case maybe, things got a lot more interesting with this move.
