Fast forward to later in the offseason when he will likely be released. He's had so many famously horrible moments in recent years that that's really what sticks out in your mind. But if he were to actually hit the market, wouldn't he be a coveted backup? He's inconsistent and a turnover machine, but he has physical tools and playoff experience.
I'm not sure the 49ers would see him as an upgrade over Colt McCoy, but it's possible. There are other teams with even worse backup situations. It will be interesting to see what happens. There is just no reason for the Jets to keep him with Garrard and Geno.
