Minicamp Report: Quarterback update

Quarterback Chad Pennington's third practice of minicamp was nondescript. Signal-caller Patrick Ramsey took the first team reps, as per the rotation system. Pennington didn't see a lot of action.

Pennington's best throw might have been a 30-yard tight spiral to the corner of the end zone. The pass was incomplete, but had a lot of velocity on it. Pennington's surgical shoulder doesn't seem to be hurting his arm strength.

As for Ramsey, considered the top contender for Pennington's starting quarterback job, he was very inconsistent.

"I think there were some good play and bad plays for me," said Ramsey.

Ramsey threw a number of incompletion. But in all fairness, he hasn't been throwing to the Jets receivers for long, so they aren't on the same page yet.

But on a few plays, he did display "happy feet" when feeling pressure. This was a criticism of him during his time with the Washington Redskins. The two best throws of practice might have been by rookie Kellen Clemens. He threw a rocket to wideout Brad Smith on a crossing route, and a perfect fade to wide receiver Laveranues Coles in the corner of the end zone.
