Jets cut QB Quinn, promote LB Lansanah
NEW YORK (AP)
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.
