                        === Jets release Brady Quinn ===
 
 Florham  Park, NY (Sports  Network) - The New York Jets won't start the season
 with  four  quarterbacks on the  active roster  after releasing Brady Quinn on
 Saturday.
 
 Quinn  was  signed on Monday  when Graham Harrell  was released, adding to the
 club's  stable of quarterbacks that includes rookie Geno Smith, Matt Simms and
 deposed injured starter Mark Sanchez.
 
 Smith  will get the start for Sunday's opener against Tampa Bay, while Sanchez
 is  sidelined  with a shoulder injury.  Speculation is that Sanchez may be out
 for  awhile  and could  even be  placed on injured  reserve, which might allow
 Quinn to return with New York.
 
 Quinn  was selected by  Cleveland with the 22nd overall pick of the 2007 draft
 and  spent his first  three seasons with the Browns. He also spent two seasons
 with Denver and last year appeared in 10 games for Kansas City.
 
 The  Notre Dame  product signed with Seattle this offseason, but was among the
 Seahawks'  final roster  cuts last weekend. Over six seasons, Quinn has thrown
 for 3,043 yards with 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.
 
 Linebacker  Danny Lansanah  was promoted from the Jets' practice squad to fill
 the active roster spot.
