Now here is an interesting move.

Chris Lopresti of WFAN in New York has just published the following tweet:

Here we go… MT @alexmarvez: Former GB QB Graham Harrell agreed to contract terms with #NYJ, according to a source. Reporting on Wednesday.

So the Jets have added another quarterback to the mix, Graham Harrell, just released by the Green Bay Packers. He was competing for the backup job with Vince Young and has lost.

For his career, Graham Harrell has thrown 4 regular season passes, completing two of them for twenty yards, and a 64.6 passer rating to date.

The big question on this is why? Is Mark Sanchez’s injury more serious than anyone is letting on? Has Idzik, by some miracle of fate, found a way to shop him to another team? Or, does this mean the potential end for either Greg McElroy or Matt Simms.

This one is very intriguing, that’s for sure, and we will be keeping an eye out for a corresponding move.
