Jets HC Todd Bowles told reporters Monday that they are exploring trade options in regards to the quarterback position, as well as available free agents.
- Bowles specifically mentioned veteran QB Matt Flynn being discussed as possibility.
Flynn, 29, hadn’t found any reported interest on the open market before the Patriots signed him to a one-year deal back in June.
The Patriots were looking to bolster their depth at quarterback following the four-game suspension handed down to Tom Brady. However, he was released just a few months later after Brady’s suspension was dropped.
The Jets signed him to a contract shortly after Geno Smith sustained a broken jaw, but he was unfortunately among their final roster cuts.
In 2014, Flynn appeared in seven games and threw for 66 yards while completing 50 percent of his passes to go along with no touchdowns and an interception in garbage time for the Packers.
A source tells Cole that the Jets have no interest in former Texans QB Ryan Mallett, which fits with previous reports.
Johnson was with the Jets earlier in the year before signing on with the Bills after Tyrod Taylor got hurt.
According to Cole, the Buccaneers aren’t interested in trading Glennon “unless the price is right” given that they have him under control through 2016.
Another speculative option could be Matt Flynn, who was also with the team a few months back.
Last night, Pro Football Talk reported that Jets had already begun making calls around the league regarding potential quarterbacks that are available to sign or traded.
