Heard Stanton on Sirius yesterday and he seems really intelligent and poised, and it seems to me that it would make sense to bring him in as competition. He is a UFA, and will not be real expensive. I think it would be attractive to him as well, because if we go in training camp with Tebow gone and a group of QBs that includes Sanchez, McElroy, draftee and Stanton, you would almost think he would be favored to win.
With Idzik on board, I definitely think that he will try and create a similar camp situation to Seattle last year. I think his first plan would be to get Flynn or maybe Foles, but even in that scenario Stanton might be a good signing as we move to the "competition" model he wants.
I can't see any reason why not. He wanted to be a Jet if not for Tanny and his brilliant move to acquire Tim Tebow. That's the only reason why he requested the trade.
If he knew he would be in a straight up QB competition without the Tim Tebow circus, he would have stayed and seen things through. And make no mistake about it, if he had stayed he would have surely beaten out Mark Sanchez to be the starter.
Instead, there was no competition at all and the season went downhill from there.
I would definitely support the Jets trading for Drew Stanton. But he's also nothing more than a stopgap until the Jets can obtain their next franchise QB prospect.
