Pizzotti, a free agent from Harvard, became expendable in the wake of the performance of QB Erik Ainge (10 of 17, 148 yards, one TD) vs. the Rams on Friday night. Raymond fumbled a punt that led to a touchdown.
I'm not sure I agree this call was a result of Ainge's performance. There was a reason Ainge saw so many snaps, and Pizzotti didn't get action. It figures Ainge was outplaying him in practice by a lot. The former Tennessee star now has the third string quarterback spot locked down. He's a developmental player. Hopefully the Jets can turn him into an effective backup for Mark Sanchez in the long run.
