Another player the Seattle Seahawks dumped on the trash heap has been dusted off and claimed by an NFL team.

The New York Jets, led by former Seahawks cap guy John Idzik, announced that the team has signed quarterback Brady Quinn.

Quinn lost the backup job in Seattle to Tarvaris Jackson. However, with Mark Sanchez’s availability in question because of a shoulder injury, and rookie Geno Smith struggling during preseason play, Quinn is a viable option for the Jets once he gets up to speed and learns the offense.

Rich Cimini of ESPN New York says Quinn’s arrival doesn’t bode well for the long-term prospects of Sanzchez sticking around.

  1. I’m glad I never got the “opportunity” to watch Brady Quinn play in a regular season game for the Seahawks.

  2. jawpeace says:

    LOL that is funny to hear from a former TJack hater. But seriously all Hawk fans hope the only time we will see a back up is taking a knee or a big blow out.

  3. wabubba67 says:

    Poor Harrell has lost two jobs in the last week. (One to another QB that was also cut a few days later.) I actually thought that Quinn was better than expected when he had decent time to set and throw.

  4. Helenahawk says:

    Brady must have a cool collection of jerseys by now! Wish him well in the buzz saw that is NY!

  5. freedom_X says:

    Now we have proof that Seattle has a loaded roster. With so many Seattle rejects getting signed, it shows that Seattle really does have great depth. We had heard this claimed in past offseasons, but this is the first time it’s actually happened that I can remember.

    This could help Seattle attract more talent too, because it shows Seattle is good at developing and showcasing players.

  6. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Good for Quinn.

  7. montanamike2 says:

    It seems Seattle is the place to go, even when you get cut your career is extended.

  8. MikeFromNewJersey says:

    We probably should now sign a QB to the practce squad. You have to always prepare in case Wilson or TJack have an issue.

  9. John Idzik’s tenure with the Jets won’t end well.

  10. NYHawkFan says:

    Living in New York City, I can say I don’t look forward to more QB fodder for city NYC newspapers. Following the Tebow fiasco, the drama continues with another QB trying to set things straight for the hapless Jets. It’s too much to endure. I’m so glad we have that issue behind us, as Wilson will hopefully be with us for many years to come.

  11. jchawks08 says:

    Good for Quinn. For all intents and purposes, he seems like a good dude, if not a good football player.

  12. edstang45 says:

    Actually Quinn may end up starting all year at least he looked good this preseason…..hpe for the best for him, also feel kinda bad as Jets are a dumpster fire right now

  13. sluggo42 says:

    I kept saying we needed to keep him for a trade!
    We coulda got a 3rd from the Jets, guaranteed! :o)

  14. sluggo42 says:

    Aaron Curry = Mark Sanchez

    We would have gotten a bust either way…

  15. Good for Quinn, who played decent for SEA, and good for the Jets (and Idzik). Unlike last season, this season RW faced the 1st string D for every preseason game. TJax and Quinn switched off playing next behind RW. TJax, who’d in ’11 not been given an even chance to compete with Flynn and RW, obviously got the better of the competition this time and had the best of the preseason stats by far, including the rest of the QBs in the NFL. Quinn did not do bad at all though. He surprised me in a very good way. In a short time on a new team with a new set of receivers, with relatively little time in practice, and facing one of, if not the best defensive backfield every day in practice, he kept the QB competition real, up until the time of cutdowns to 53. If he was not offering real QB competition PC/JS would have released him much earlier and brought in a free agent QB who would. His reg season records on previous teams made me expect much less.

  16. AaronCurryIsBUST says:

    Brady Quinn will make a great coach one day. Class act all the way and intelligent, if not physically gifted relative to star quarterbacks.

    Also, who are you to say Sanchez = Curry? For all we know Sanchez would have developed perfectly under Hasselbeck’s tutelage and wouldn’t have lost confidence in the obscurity of Seattle rather than New York’s frenzy.

    I was shouting from the rooftops from day 1 that Curry was going to be a flaming bust. Those of you convinced he was going to be legendary clearly never watched a moment of him in college. Speaking of which, thinking a player from a joke football program like Wake Forest is going to be a star is a mistake I’m sure no NFL team will make again. Curry’s teammates Alphonso Smith and Stanley Arnoux were also huge busts who accomplished zero in the NFL.

  17. Skavage says:

    Quinn has all the tools except one. His accuracy is suspect at best. Great guy. Sounds like he’s a hard worker and good teammate but this is the NFL. An accurate QB will trump a strong arm every time. Just ask Hass. He’s never had the strongest arm but he’s always been lights out accurate.

  18. AaronCurryIsBUST says:

    Quinn doesn’t have much of an arm either.

  19. ACIB, you were calling Wilson a midget and RW3andOut through the Dolphins game last year. Who are you to say anything about QBs?

    sluggo, that 2009 top ten was full of busts. 7 out of ten were busts IMO. Andre Smith has turned into a pretty good RT, but you don’t draft someone at #6 to do that.
