The Jets have agreed to sign quarterback David Fales in advance of this week’s game against the Patriots, according to Manish Mehta of the Daily News. Fales will serve as the No. 2 QB behind Luke Falk, who has been thrust into the starting role.
To put it mildly, the Jets’ current quarterback situation is a tire fire. Starter Sam Darnold is out with mono and can only hope to return in time to face the Eagles in Week 5. His absence pushed Trevor Siemian into the starting job, but his season ended midway through his first start when his ankle was contorted, resulting in serious ligament tears. Falk, the club’s No. 3 QB, is now set to make his first Jets start against the league’s greatest dynasty of all-time.
Fales has familiarity with Adam Gase‘s system thanks to their time together in Chicago in 2015 and Miami in 2016-2017. In two games for the Dolphins, Fales completed 29 of 43 throws.
