Jets Trade For O’Connell To Deal Him To Denver?
After the Jets traded for backup QB Kevin O’Connell, rumor has it that he may be dealt to Denver, according to ProFootballTalk. That, of course, opened up the speculation that Brandon Marshall trade talks would start heating up between Denver and Gang Green. But a Denver Post article says that Denver’s interest in O’Connell is because of the team’s lack of depth behind Kyle Orton and Chris Simms, not the precursor to a Marshall trade. Denver put in a waiver claim for O’Connell after he was released by New England. Though who knows whether this could be the start of MarshallMania all over again. As Jason Brand just said, O’Connell seems to be the NFL’s Quentin Richardson.
