Quarterback Patrick Ramsey, acquired by the New York Jets earlier this spring to compete with the rehabilitating Chad Pennington for the starting job, has signed a one-year contract extension.
As anticipated, the floundering Oakland Raiders switched starting quarterbacks on Wednesday, benching Kerry Collins and elevating little-used five-year veteran Marques Tuiasosopo to the No. 1 spot for Sunday's game against the New York Jets.
Teams such as the Jets and Browns, who can't run or stop the run, have gotten off to slow starts this season.
Vinny Testaverde is still the Jets' starting quarterback. But Chad Pennington will get a chance to play.
