07:11 AM ET 08.28 | Well, this didn't take long -- and it's Green Bay to Gang Green for Graham Harrell. The New York Jets have agreed to contract terms with former [Harrell], a source told FOX Sports. Harrell, 28, had spent the past three seasons with the Packers and served as Aaron Rodgers' backup in 2012. Harrell was released Sunday after Vince Young emerged as the front-runner to serve as Green Bay's new second-stringer. Although Harrell wasn't claimed off waivers Tuesday, the Jets are signing him in the aftermath of a shoulder injury suffered by quarterback Mark Sanchez in last Saturday's preseason game against the New York Giants. Sanchez, who was battling rookie Geno Smith for a starting spot, won't play in Thursday's preseason finale against Philadelphia, and his availability for the regular-season opener vs. Tampa Bay is in question.

They should consider sending over a #1 pick and some change to the Redskins for Captain Kirk Cousins.... Maybe we'll think about it.

They would be better off bringing back Joe Namath and giving him angel dust.

So this genius was replaced by a bigger genius named Vince Young. Got it.

Well, he lost his job to VY. Suck could be the appropriate term.
