Jets release Quinn, may re-sign QB next week

Associated Press
NEW YORK — The New York Jets have released Brady Quinn, leaving rookie starter Geno Smith and backup Matt Simms as the team's only healthy quarterbacks for the season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The move Saturday had been expected because coach Rex Ryan prefers to not have three quarterbacks active for games — and it prevents Quinn's salary from being guaranteed. Salaries for NFL veterans become guaranteed at 4 p.m. EDT Saturday.
Quinn was signed by the Jets on Monday to provide a veteran presence at the position with Mark Sanchez sidelined with a shoulder injury. It's very likely the Jets will re-sign Quinn early next week.
Linebacker Danny Lansanah, who had an outstanding training camp, was promoted from the practice squad. He last played in a regular-season NFL game in 2009.
