NEW YORK (AP)

A person familiar with the New York Jets' plans says the team is trying to trade quarterback Drew Stanton.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the team hasn't announced its plans.

Stanton signed a $1.25 million, 1-year deal last week to be Mark Sanchez's backup, but the Tim Tebow deal has relegated Stanton to another third-string job. He left the Detroit Lions for a chance to be a No. 2 QB after sitting behind Matthew Stafford and Shaun Hill.

New York sent fourth- and sixth-round picks to Denver shortly after signing Sanchez to a three-year extension.

Stanton has played in 12 games, including four starts, since being drafted in the second round five years ago.
