Jets Reportedly Set to Release Ramsey if They Can't Trade Him First
The New York Jets reportedly are poised to release quarterback Patrick Ramsey.
The New York Daily News reported the Jets plan to trade or release Ramsey before having to pay him a $1.4 million roster bonus Saturday.
The former first-round draft pick spent this past season as the Jets' backup after being obtained in a trade with the Washington Redskins. But the Jets plan to have Kellen Clemens as their No. 2 quarterback behind starter Chad Pennington and Ramsey will be looking for his third team in three seasons. He began the 2005 season as the Redskins starter but was benched quickly by Coach Joe Gibbs and then traded to the Jets last offseason for a sixth-round draft choice.
The Cincinnati Bengals are one possible landing spot. They were interested in Ramsey last offseason and Coach Marvin Lewis told Redskins owner Daniel Snyder after the trade to the Jets he would have offered a fifth-rounder for the quarterback if he'd known that would have gotten the deal done.
