New York Jets add yet another QB in Josh Johnson

The New York Jets have not had a great pre-season, to say the very least.


It got off to a poor start last week with the revelation that cornerback Dee Milliner would be missing the start of the season with yet another injury, which served as a prelude to an even bigger injury story as Geno Smith had his jaw broken by a punch from I.K Enemkpali.

Oh, and Oday Aboushi was handed a suspension by Roger Goodel. But the Jets have decided to sign another new quarterback after Smith's broken jaw.

QB Makeover

Ever since their starting quarterback was ruled out for the first few weeks of the season, the Jets have tried to completely revamp their depth chart at the position. 

Despite already having fourth round draft pick Bryce Petty and veteran slinger Ryan Fitzpatrick backing up Smith, the Jets went out and brought in former Seahawks and Packers backup Matt Flynn.

Johnson In

Todd Bowles didn't just stop with Flynn however, as the Jets announced the signing of former Bengals quarterback Josh Johnson earlier today.

The 29-year old Johnson has played seven NFL seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was released by the Bengals on Tuesday, being beaten out for the job of Andy Dalton's backup by AJ McCarron.

The Buccaneers selected Johnson in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL draft out of San Diego; he played four seasons with them before signing with the 49ers in 2012.
