Harrell joins a well-known but underwhelming quarterback group in New York. Mark Sanchez continues to recover from a shoulder injury and will not play in Thursday's preseason finale. Questions swirl around rookie Geno Smith's readiness to take on a starting NFL job. McElroy and Simms have been competing for the final quarterback job. Rapoport reported the Jets might keep all five quarterbacks on the roster for the time being.
Harrell's signing is mostly about the Jets getting through their final preseason game, and he will have an uphill battle to make the roster beyond this week, even with McElroy injured.
