New York Jets Sign Trevor Siemian To Backup QB Role

4 things to know about new Jets QB Trevor Siemian

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Vikings are "in the mix" for Mannion now that their former backup quarterback, Trevor Siemian, is meeting with the Jets. Siemian's new contract has a base value of $2 million, according to a league source.

Mannion, a 2015 third-round pick out of Oregon State, has played with the Rams for the last four seasons. Cousins himself spent three seasons in Washington learning from McVay, who was the Redskins' offensive coordinator at the time.

He's the third Vikings free agent courted by the Jets, joining guard Tom Compton and linebacker Anthony Barr, who reneged on a verbal commitment with NY last week. The former Northwestern quarterback earned a Super Bowl ring as a backup for the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50. He started 14 games, going 8-6 while completing 59.5% of his passes for 3,401 yards, 18 touchdown passes, 10 interceptions, and an 84.6 passer rating.

He said hundreds of wounded and sick militants were captured and have been evacuated to nearby military hospitals for treatment. Commanders say they don't know how many more may still be left, hiding in tunnels beneath the war-scarred village.

In 2016 Siemian got the call - and some said the unenviable task - of following up the retired Manning as the Broncos' opening-day starter.

Davis Webb has been signed to a one-year, $645,000 deal with the Jets this offseason as well.

Josh McCown, who served as Darnold's backup at the end of the year, is undecided about coming back to play football in 2019.
