The Jets have a new offensive coordinator in Marty Mornhinweg and, reportedly, a new quarterbacks coach in David Lee.

Although it's entirely possible that the Mark Sanchez era extends another year, this brings in a new group of possibilities for quarterbacks that could end up on the roster simply because of familiarity with the two. Both Lee and Mornhinweg have ties to a ton through their years in the league, a lot of whom are available this offseason.

Kevin Kolb

Current team: Arizona Cardinals

Contract status: Signed a six-year, $63.5 million contract with the Cardinals in 2011. In 2012 he played in five games, going 3-2 as a starter, before missing the remainder of the season with a rib injury. Although new head coach Bruce Arians said he has no preconceived notions about Kolb, he's owed a lot of money next season -- $11 million -- making him a potential cut.

2012 Stats: 109-of-183 for 1,169 yards, 8 touchdowns and 3 interceptions.

A. J. Feeley

Current team: Free agent, last played with the Rams in 2010-11

Contract status: Free agent

2012 Stats: : No stats, Feeley will turn 36 before the season starts next year.

Mike Kafka

Current team: New England Patriots (signed a futures deal in 2013)

Contract status: Signed a two-year $1.2 million contract. Will be a free agent in 2015.

2012 Stats: No stats, Kafka was edged off the Eagles roster following a 2012 preseason quarterback battle.

Vince Young

Current team: Free agent

Contract status: Young is a 29-year-old former first-round pick who is still hoping to make a comeback. He last played for the Eagles in 2011 and was cut by the Buffalo

2012 Stats: Young didn't take a snap in 2012 in the regular season.

Michael Vick

Current team: Philadelphia Eagles

Contract status: Signed a six-year, $100 million contract in 2011. We'll turn to ESPN's Andrew Brandt to explain 2013 specifically: "Of this, $3 million is guaranteed for injury only. However, once the calendar hits the second day of waivers in 2013 – in mid-February – the guarantee converts to a full skill guarantee for that year. Vick allowed this for funding purposes, as any amounts guaranteed for skill prior to January 31 have to be funded by the team."

2012 Stats: 201-of-351 for 2,362 yards, 12 TDs and 10 INT.

Trent Edwards

Current team: Philadelphia Eagles

Contract status:: Signed a two-year $1.415 million contract in 2012.

2012 Stats: Played in one game going 2-of-2 for 14 yards. Was eclipsed by Nick Foles in the preseason for the right to be Vick's backup.

Tarvaris Jackson* (Was a freshman under David Lee at Arkansas in 2001)

Current team: Buffalo Bills

Contract status: Free agent

2012 Stats: Jackson was third on the Bills' depth chart this season after getting traded from the Seahawks for a seventh-round pick.

*Jackson has connections with new Jets GM John Idzik as well.

John Beck

Current team: Free agent

Contract status: Free agent, last played for the Texans in 2012 but was cut by Houston in October.

2012 Stats: Beck last recorded stats for the Redskins in 2011, going 80-of-132 for 858 yards, 2 touchdowns and 4 interceptions.

Chad Henne*

Current team: Jacksonville Jaguars

Contract status: Signed a two-year, $6.75 million contract with the Jaguars in 2012.

2012 Stats: In nine games, Henne was 141-of-267 for 1,786 yards, 9 touchdowns and 8 interceptions.

* Henne is now playing for a new coach and general manager. Despite filling in admirably for Blaine Gabbert in 2012, his future is definitely up in the air.

Josh McCown

Current team: Chicago Bears

Contract status: Free agent

2012 Stats: McCown, who will turn 34 before next season, last recorded stats for the Bears in 2011, going 35-of-55 for 414 yards, 2 touchdowns and 4 interceptions.

Tyler Thigpen

Current team: Buffalo Bills

Contract status: Free agent

2012 Stats: Thigpen was 3-of-5 for 30 yards this year for the Bills. His last significant stats came in 2010 with the Dolphins.

Looks like finding an inexpensive QB option to "challenge" Mark Sanchez won't rely entirely on the draft.

So are these 2 guys unlucky to have every awful QB in the NFL or.........

I think Tebow should compete for the starting job in TC. The job should be wide open barring something ridiculous. Say Tebow was brought on as a project QB if he wins the job.

The least the author could have done was put a little footnote at the bottom explaining all the HOF and or solid QBs these two worked with who are no longer in the league or unavailable. I get the point of the article, but with such a sensitive fan-base they should have known better than to put this out there without some sort of "step off the ledge" closing paragraph.

Draft pick wins or I get a Bane mask, a cool jacket and take Gotham hostage with a stolen fusion reactor.
