    HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) -- Quarterback Quincy Carter signed with the New York Jets on Tuesday, three weeks after his surprising release by Dallas.

    Carter, who started every game for the Cowboys last season, was released Aug. 4, before the team's first exhibition game. Reports said he failed a drug test and the NFL Players Association has filed a request for arbitration in the case.

    With the Jets, he will back up Chad Pennington, giving the team an experienced second-stringer. Neither of the other two quarterbacks on the team's roster, second-year-man Brooks Bollinger or former Canadian Football League quarterback Ricky Ray has ever taken an NFL snap.

    Ironically, Carter was succeeded as the Cowboys' quarterback by 40-year-old Vinny Testaverde, released this spring by the Jets after starting 57 games in six seasons with them.

    Carter, a second-round draft choice by the Cowboys in 2001, started all 31 games in which he played for Dallas, including 17 last season -- 16 in the regular season and one in the playoffs. In his career, he has 507 completions in 902 attempts for 5,839 yards with 29 touchdowns and 36 interceptions.

    Known for his mobility, he has also has run 140 times for 498 yards.

    Have you seen him try to read a secondary??? He's a decent back up at best.

    good to see he got a job.
    now if he can stay away from the chronic for a football season, that would be cool.

    That picture of him the morning he was cut from the Cowboys in yahoo was just pitiful!

    Best of luck to quincy.

    Actually, I honestly don't give a rat's ass about Quincy Carter.

    I just want him to do well to make the Cowgirls look stupid.

    Looks like Pennington's days as a starting qb are numbered.

    I think it was something a little stronger than the chronic that got him kicked out of Cowboy-land.

    Do we really know that with the little playing time he's had under his belt? After 31 games, I don't know if we can fully judge his eventual ability.

    That's actually a good fit for him.

    Hopefully, for NJ's sake, Pennington won't get injured at all this season. :D
