    Jets deal for Ramsey for 6th round pick

    Hey Ramsey is not one of our choices for backup no more.

    Finally completing a trade that had been rumored for weeks, the New York Jets on Friday afternoon acquired quarterback Patrick Ramsey from the Washington Redskins for a sixth-round choice in the 2006 draft, ESPN.com has learned.


    Given the uncertainty over the availability of Chad Pennington, who is rehabilitating from a second rotator cuff surgery five months ago, the Jets considered a variety of options for bolstering their quarterback depth chart. As recently as earlier Friday, the Jets were still in discussions about a trade that would have brought them Falcons backup quarterback Matt Schaub in a deal that would have sent three-time Pro Bowl defensive end John Abraham to Atlanta.

    The Jets and Falcons continued on Friday to explore other formulas for completing an Abraham trade.

    Ramsey, the Redskins' first-round pick in the 2002 draft, but relegated to reserve status behind Mark Brunell for all but one game in '05, had been sought by several other teams as well. He met last week with Jets officials, including first-year head coach Eric Mangini, but also visited with Tampa Bay officials and was being pursued by Cincinnati. The Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions also demonstrated interest.

    A few weeks ago, Washington was said to be seeking a second- or third-round pick in return for Ramsey, but the Redskins subsequently reduced their asking price. The Jets, until Friday, has been offering a No. 7 draft choice for Ramsey.

    New York coaches feel confident, after doing extended research on Ramsey, that he is a starting-caliber quarterback in the league. If Pennington is unable to play at the outset of the season, Ramsey likely will be the starter. The Jets could still use the fourth overall choice in the first round to select a quarterback, but adding Ramsey eliminates the urgency to do so and provides New York more flexibility in the lottery.

    Ramsey, 27, has a 10-14 record as a starter. He has completed 480 of 861 passes for 5,649 yards with 34 touchdown passes, 29 interceptions and a 75.0 quarterback rating.

    Can't you change the title of the thread?

    That's blatant false advertising.

    (EDIT: Thread title fixed post-post)

    Are you really that excited over Ramsey getting traded and a 6th round draft pick? The caps almost blinded me.

    I wonder what will happen to Pennington. I think he's signed through 2007.

    Between Ramsey and Pennington I think they may pass on one of the three QBs and take D'brickashaw or Mario Williams after they move Abraham.
    Minnesota Vikings : Simply the best

    I probably would have used all caps too if I thought the Redskins got a top 10 overall draft pick for Patrick Ramsay. If that was the case, we could have gotten the entire starting defensive 11 of the Dolphins for an injured Culpepper.

    And the fall of Vince Young begins, as predicted.

    Do you think he could fall like Aaron Rogers last year?
