So the battle for third string quarterback is down to two.
GJ Kinne, from Tulsa, has been released by the team, according to Kinne. Here is his response on Twitter:
I definitely didn’t get a fair shot, but I know God has a plan! Thanks for all the support
No statement has come from the team yet, but it appears that the 3rd string quarterback competition is down to Matt Simms, and Greg McElroy.
Alan has been a passionate Jets fan since 1985. Obviously, that means he is a glutton for punishment, as he has suffered through many Jets disappointments. He remembers Mark Gastineau's late hit in the 1986 AFC Divisional Playoff game like it was yesterday. There have been many more failures than successes, but through it all, Alan has remained true to the Gang Green. He has been blogging for the Jets on various websites for the past 5-6 years. He lives and breathes the NY Jets all year round, and is committed to bringing the Jets passion to "The Jet Press" on a daily basis. Alan has also been recently named to the Pro Football Writers Association. Like what you read? Hit him up on twitter at @thejetpress
