Brady Quinn is the newest member of the Jets’ quarterback carousel.
New York signed the veteran Monday to give the team an experienced backup behind rookie Geno Smith, who appears likely to start the season opener against Tampa Bay on Sunday.
Quinn, a first-round pick of Cleveland in 2007, was cut by Seattle on Saturday. His signing also clouds the future of Mark Sanchez, who is sidelined with a shoulder injury and could miss at least the first few weeks of the season.
Quinn was on the field at practice with the other quarterbacks, while Sanchez was off to the side on a stationary bike during the 30-minute window the media were allowed to watch.
The Jets are waiting to announce a starting quarterback for Sunday, but all signs are pointing to Smith being under center. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
