Draft Scout Greg McElroy News
04/07/14 - QB Greg McElroy was waived by the Bengals March 21 after he said was retiring from the NFL.
09/02/13 - QB Greg McElroy was placed on reserve/injured Sunday.
09/02/13 - QB Greg McElroy was placed on waivers from reserve/injured with an injury settlement by the Jets Monday.
08/31/13 - QB Greg McElroy was released Saturday by the New York Jets, according to ESPN.com, citing team and league sources. With McElroy now a former Jet, that leaves Mark Sanchez, Geno Smith and Matt Simms as the team's quarterbacking corps. Recently signed Graham Harrell is also still on the roster, but played just one snap in the Jets' final preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
McElroy was a seventh-round pick in 2011. He had been sidelined with injuries, primarily a sprained left knee, for much of the latter part of the preseason, allowing Simms, an undrafted free agent from Tennessee and the son of former New York Giants QB Phil Simms, to vault over him on the depth chart. McElroy was part of the Jets' convoluted quarterback circus last season, rallying the team for a win over Arizona, then starting for the benched Sanchez against San Diego, only to be sacked 11 times in that game. He also suffered a concussion in that game.
08/27/13 - QB Greg McElroy missed his second straight game Saturday due to an ankle injury that he suffered in the Jets' preseason opener against the Lions. McElroy seems likely to enter the season as the Jets' no. 3 quarterback.
