This morning, we are spotlighting another member of the quarterbacks crew who in camp is battling with second year QB Greg McElroy for the third string quarterback job and that is former Tulsa quarterback GJ Kinne. He may not have familial ties to the New York football scene like Matt Simms but Kinne has ties to another former Jet quarterback; Chad Pennington. His father is
former Baylor linebacker Gary Joe Kinne who is currently the linebackers coach in Chicago.
He’s built at 6-1.5 tall and 225lbs.
The guy had some really solid numbers when he was at Tulsa. He had 9,469 yards passing, 81 touchdowns, and a 61.3 completion percentage (732 comp/1,195 attempts) for his college career. With his feet, Kinne had 1,365 yardsrushing and scored 15 touchdowns.
In his final year at Tulsa, he threw for 3,087 yards, 28 TDs, and 12 INTs for a 63.3 completion percentage (247 comp/390 attempts). He ran for 405 yards and scored three TDs.
Here is some tape that on Kinne to wet the pallet:
