Jets Offseason 2012: New York Trades QB Drew Stanton To Colts, According To Report

The New York Jets traded backup quarterback Drew Stanton to the Indianapolis Colts on Friday, according to a report.

The Jets did not disclose the terms of the trade.

Stanton was acquired by New York last Friday on a 1-year, $1.25 million deal. Stanton was supposed to be the team's No. 2 quarterback behind starter Mark Sanchez. Then, the Jets picked up Tim Tebow in a trade with the Denver Broncos.

Stanton was asked to be traded or released following the Tebow acquisition. With the trade of Stanton, that leaves Sanchez, Tebow and Greg McElroy on the Jets roster at the quarterback position.
