    Quincy the QB Finds a Home in New York

    New York City, NY ? The New York Jets announced Tuesday they have signed four-year NFL veteran quarterback Quincy Carter. Terms of the contract were not announced. The announcement was made by Jets' General Manager Terry Bradway.

    Carter, 6-2, 213 pounds, has started every game he has played in on the NFL level, totaling 31 games. He entered the NFL in 2001 following his junior season at the University of Georgia, as a second-round draft choice (53rd selection overall) of the Dallas Cowboys. A native of Decatur, Georgia, Carter has 902 career pass attempts, with 507 completions (56.2 comp. pct.) for 5,839 yards, 29 touchdowns, 36 interceptions and a passer rating of 70.0. He has also rushed the ball 140 times for 498 yards (3.6 avg.) and three touchdowns, and has compiled a 16-15 record as a starter in regular season games.

    As a rookie in 2001, Carter, 26, went to training camp competing with Tony Banks for the starting job. Midway through camp, Banks was released and Carter was named the successor to Troy Aikman, who had retired following the 2000 season. Despite missing eight games with thumb and hamstring injuries, he completed 90 of 176 passes for 1,072 yards, five touchdowns and seven interceptions.

    In 2002, Carter led Dallas to a three-and-four record before being replaced by rookie signal-caller Chad Hutchinson. Carter completed 125 of 221 passes for 1,465 yards, seven touchdowns and eight interceptions while in the starting lineup.

    Last season (2003), the Cowboys went 10-6 with Carter as the starting quarterback and returned to the playoffs for the first time since 1999. In his 16 starts, he threw for a career-high 3,302 yards, with 17 touchdowns and 21 interceptions (both career-highs). Carter was released by the Cowboys on August 4, 2004.

    Thanks for the info. If he came and went it might have set Ham off again...ALWAYS BE CLOSING.

    Only busting Ham...you know that.

    This is a good signing for the Jets. I hope Bollinger goes and Ricky Ray stays. But either way they needed a backup with some experience.
