Brady Quinn and LaDainian Tomlinson find new homes

LaDainian Tomlinson has agreed to a two-year deal with the New York Jets, after also negotiating with the Minnesota Vikings.

With the Jets, Tomlinson will likely see more carries than he would have with the Vikings. Adrian Peterson is the number one guy in Minnesota, while the Jets' running back situation is a little more of an open competition. Rookie Shonn Greene had a nice season last year, but LT will probably still get 10-15 carries per game and catch some passes in New York.

Brady Quinn was dealt to the Denver Broncos for fullback Peyton Hillis and two draft picks. It's a good pickup for the Broncos, where Quinn will compete with Kyle Orton for the starting job. There should also be some familiarity with the offense in Denver, since coach Josh McDaniels comes from the same school of thought as Quinn's Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weiss.
