Free agent quarterback Matt Flynn had a workout with the Jets on Friday, and Friday came and went without Flynn signing a contract.
So it would seem the Jets have decided not to acquire Flynn as the backup to Ryan Fitzpatrick.
But coach Todd Bowles said after Saturday's training camp practice that Flynn remains an option for the organization.
"We haven't ruled in or out anything yet," Bowles said. "We're still talking to him, and we'll see how it goes."
The Jets probably need an experienced No. 2 quarterback because Fitzpatrick is now their starter, since Geno Smith's jaw was broken when teammate IK Enemkpali punched him last week. Smith is out for six to 10 weeks.
The Jets' current No. 2 is rookie Bryce Petty, who is very much a long-term project player. The Jets really don't want to play Petty in significant game action this season.
