Free-agent quarterback Quincy Carter, released by the Dallas Cowboys on Aug. 4 after allegedly testing positive in violation of the NFL substance abuse policy, flew to New York on Monday night and will meet Tuesday with Jets officials, ESPN.com has learned.




League sources said that, if the session goes well, Carter might fairly quickly sign a one-year contract to serve as a backup to Chad Pennington. Several teams have inquired about Carter but most had opted to wait for a resolution of his proceeding in front of a special master, in which the NFL Players Association has charged the Cowboys violated statutes of the collective bargaining agreement in releasing him.


The CBA stipulates that a player cannot be released solely for violating the substance abuse policy. Dallas officials have insisted they were well within their rights to cut the player who has been their starting quarterback the past three seasons.


New York apparently was more aggressive than other teams interested in Carter, in part because it has no experienced depth at the backup spots. Carter has not been suspended by the league and is free to sign with any team.


The projected primary backup to Pennington, second-year veteran Brooks Bollinger, is sidelined by a sprained knee. The No. 3 quarterback on the depth chart is former CFL star Ricky Ray, who is in his first NFL training camp.


Basically, the aim of Carter is to get back into a structured football environment, maybe get some snaps this season, and then go back into the free agent market next spring as an unrestricted player.


Carter, 26, was the Cowboys' second-round pick in the 2001 draft. In three years, Carter started 31 games and completed 507 of 902 passes, for 5,839 yards, with 29 touchdown passes and 36 interceptions.

I don't want him. Right now the only druggie is Evans but he seems to have straightened his act out. Besides him we have a very classy team. Before you know it Carter will have Chad doin lines with him!!!!

We need a back up QB and this kid is a starter who mplayed in all 16 last yr.he is the best option for us right now and is a great pickup.

That's a good idea for the Jets. Plus Bollinger sucks, so thats a plus too.

A couple days ago I read somewhere here at the cafe that the Jets were having problems with Ray and Bollinger. And sure enough a few days later they are aiming at Carter. I think I would rather have him as a backup than Ray, especially considering he has been less than impressive.

You can't honestyly expect anybody to come over from the CFL and play well behind the jets 3rd string offense.

Bollinger was a wasted draft pick,he might be smart & a coaches son like Pennington,he can't put it together on the field and he should be cut ASAP.

Ray has show flashes of a big arm and good pocket presence,as a #3 QB and learning behind Chad and quincy will help his game and he could very well become a legit #2 QB in the NFL .
