Jets Waive Kevin O’Connell

The race for the third quarterback appears to be over as the Jets waived QB Kevin O’Connell today. Kellen Clemens can now breath easy as it looks like he’s made the team. It’s quite the turnaround, since it was only a few weeks ago that Clemens looked all but gone. Perhaps it was the awful play by Mark Brunell and O’Connell in the preseason that changed the Jets mind.

O’Connell was a third round pick of the Patriots in 2008, but now has been waived by three teams in just over two years. That’s never a good sign and especially if one of them was the Detroit Lions. It appears like he is running out of chances in the NFL.

UPDATE: It is now being reported that Kellen Clemens did take a pay cut to stay with the team.
