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.
He's a free agent, no need for a trade.
