Bryce Petty begins his audition for 2017:

With the New York Jets looking for their quarterback of the future, Bryce Petty begins his four-game audition to man the helm for the Jets in 2017.

These next four games for Petty should determine whether the Jets  feel comfortable going forward with Bryce Petty under center or if they need to look for outside help before the start of the 2017 campaign. With names such as Tony Romo and Mike Glennon being linked to the New York Jets and Christian Hackenberg lurking in the shadows, Petty will have four weeks to prove to the Jets brass that he is the quarterback of the future.

Colin Kaepernick is not only playing for his job with the 49ers, but his future in the NFL:

The struggles of the New York Jets secondary has been well documented this season, and with Colin Kaepernick struggling this season to get the ball moving through the air, Kaepernick needs to abuse the porous Jets secondary to prove to the 49ers organization that he is more than just a quarterback who can use his legs to create big plays.

If the 49ers do indeed decide to move on from Colin Kaepernick in the future, the chances of Kaepernick landing a starting gig in the NFL are slim. Not only has Kaepernick ruffled many feathers with his protest to the national anthem, but  his inability to sustain drives in the passing attack will keep quarterback-needy teams at bay with Kaepernick looking to latch on elsewhere.
