Tyler Thigpen coming in to work out on Friday


Recommended Posts

i don't advocate it, but that's the nfl now.  the jets will be drafting a qb in the first round if this year goes south.  if, say, the jets take connor cook or hackenberg in the first round in 2015, bryce really doesn't have a great shot of ever winning the starting job, does he?

100% agree, Petty delivers the playoffs or a top QB in the draft, or he sits and ends up the back up for the rest of his career

No he wouldn't.  But honestly Cook or Hackenberg are going to be way better then Petty anyway.

Looks like the thought process here has changed.

Guess they are going to take a shot at Grossman.  Or maybe they finally reached out to Matt Flynn.

Grossman is injured and the Pats cut Flynn because he's been out with a hammy.  There's not much available via FA, nothing that would make you cancel anyone.  Maybe they're closing in on a trade

Here is a name from the past for you guys.  Drew Wiley has been the starting QB for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers the past couple of years and was doing pretty good up here until he got hurt last week and is now out for the year I think.

According to Dianna Marie Russini of ESPN, the Jets will hold a workout for quarterback Tyler Thigpen on Friday.

Thigpen, like Ryan Fitzpatrick, is a former Chan Gailey pupil as he threw 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in his second season in the NFL as a seventh-round draft choice who was elevated to starting status following injuries to multiple Kansas City quarterbacks in 2008.

 

The workout should come as no surprise as the Jets will be looking for another quarterback to add to the roster following today’s incident in which linebacker IK Enemkpali broke Geno Smith’s jaw in a locker room altercation.

for once I got one right,, that tells me (since Thigpen out of football a year BUT played for Chan/knows playbook) that Jets also might be inquiring what it would take to get Tarvares Jackson away from the Seahwaks (also played for Chan/knows playbook)
