Sam Darnold is the Jets' franchise quarterback, but what is the plan in case he goes down with an injury next season?
Well, new head coach Adam Gase may turn to a familiar face.
According to Chris Mortensen on ESPN's NFL Live on Monday, the Jets could be a potential destination for free agent quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Tannehill, 30, played for Gase the last three seasons during his tenure as head coach of the Miami Dolphins and could be brought into New York as the backup quarterback for the Jets.
Josh McCown served as the backup last season, but the veteran -- who turns 40 before the start of next season -- has not committed to whether or not he wants to continue to play.
Darnold missed three games last year with a foot injury but McCown also served as a mentor to Darnold.
Tannehill is a former first-round pick who never quite lived up to expectations and has consistently been marred by injuries.
He missed the entire 2017 season after tearing his ACL and was unable to start in the one season he reached the playoffs -- under Gase in 2016 -- due to a knee injury.
He went 5-6 last season and threw for 1,976 yards with 17 touchdowns to nine interceptions with a 63.2 percent completion rate.
