NFL Rumors: New York Jets interested in signing Matt Schaub

The NFL free agency period is almost here and teams are already starting to look at options they could have on the table when it comes to upgrading their roster. The New York Jets need serious help at quarterback and seem to be in the market for veteran assistance.

According to, the Jets could possibly be interested in adding quarterback Matt Schaub this offseason to mentor Geno Smith and compete for the starting job.

The Jets also may check into the availability of Matt Schaub, who probably will be cut or traded by the Houston Texans. Schaub was a train wreck last season, but, remember, he was a Pro Bowl player in 2012. Quarterbacks coach David Lee is strong on fundamentals and he could work wonders with Schaub. Problem is, his price tag could be too rich for the Jets.

New York needs fresh blood at quarterback to try and kick start Geno Smith’s career as he had no one to teach him anything last year. Schaub is hardly elite, but he’s a veteran who could come in and really help Geno learn how to be a quarterback.

    “David Lee is strong on fundamentals and he could work wonders with Schaub” I can hardly contain the laughter here. Espn has lost ALL credibility if they truly believe that statement! The last two Jet quarterbacks Lee worked with both had terrible fundamentals. Tebow and Sanchez’s fundamentals were both bad when they arrived, and under Lee’s tutelage, neither progressed, they actually digressed. Tebow gone, Sanchez almost gone! Lee worked his magic!!

      you actually know that lee joined the jets last season…his first was with the team was with geno smith, get your facts straight before you embarrass yourself..

        My mistake to include Tebow…. Sanchez’s fundamentals were much improved last season and the Buffalo QB’s thrived under his stay there as well! LOL Thanks for the correction :)
