Former QB Jared Lorenzen Wants The Jets To Sign Him
It’s been a wild and tumultuous NFL off-season full of deflate-gate chaos and new Hall of Fame inductees and now broken jaws and hefty requests can be added to that list.
Not too long after New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith had his jaw broken in an altercation with now former teammate IK Enemkpali, an interesting situation arose. One man's injury is another man's big opportunity - or so they say.
Seeing the starting quarterback position temporarily in flux former NY Giant backup Jared Lorenzen saw a potential opportunity. The now 34-year old known as “Hefty Lefty” has voiced his desire to be signed by the New York Jets amid Geno Smith’s injury, feeling pretty confident as he took to twitter.
Quite a bit of confidence coming from the former indoor football league River Monster quarterback who hasn't stepped on an NFL field since earning a ring backing up Eli Manning in Super Bowl XLII. Whether or not this 320 pound quarterback truly does look good in green is up for debate but his branding ability seems to be on the rise.
Even if Jared Lorenzen never steps on another NFL field for the rest of his life, at least he made one hilariously valiant effort. NFL teams have done worse things than signing a 320 pound former indoor football league quarterback all in the name of ticket sales. I for one would certainly be entertained to see Mr. Lorenzen in the NFL and who knows, maybe we will.
