The search for their starting quarterback is still on for the New York Jets. Up until now, there is no clear main signal caller for the Jets after they release Ryan Fitzpatrick last month while Geno Smith hit the free agency. Latest news is saying that they are now considering former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Chase Daniel as a possible fit for the job.
The New York Jets are one of the teams that had a dismal performance last season. Part of their downfall is their lackluster offense which is somewhat being blamed to Fitzpatrick and Smith failure to stabilize it. And now, it seems that the Jets are already moving forward without them and looking for a total rebuild next season.
Part of the New York Jets rebuilding process is to get a decent passer to run their offense next season and it appears that they already have one potential target. According to the New York Post, the Jets have arranged a visit for free agent quarterback Chase Daniel on their training facility Monday. The team hopes that they can add the 30-year old quarterback before the regular season starts.
Currently, the New York Jets only have Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty at their quarterback depth chart. The arrival of Chase Daniel could somehow give them an assurance that there is a veteran quarterback and a potential starter for the team next season. Daniel was released by the Philadelphia Eagles upon his request after the Eagles signed Nick Foles basically to replace him as backup to Carson Wentz.
The New York Jets could be Chase Daniel's fourth team if ever a deal is consummated today. Though Daniel was a member of the New Orleans Saints who won the Super Bowl title in 2009-2010 season, he wasn't able to play for the team that season making his championship ring a little unsatisfying. And now, a starting quarterback job could be waiting for him with the Jets if terms will be agreed for both parties.
