ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- The Washington Redskins traded quarterback Patrick Ramsey to the New York Jets on Friday for a sixth-round pick in the April draft.

Ramsey began last year as the starter before losing the job to Mark Brunell and asked to be traded. The Jets were looking for another quarterback to compete with Chad Pennington going into training camp.

Though the Jets restructured Pennington's contract earlier this month, there are concerns he won't be able to come back from a second operation on his right shoulder.

Pennington has been the team's starter since midway through the 2002 season, but has missed time the last three seasons with various injuries. He re-injured his shoulder last September against Jacksonville and was out for the rest of the year, but he says he will be ready to participate for the start of minicamps in May.

Ramsey was a first-round pick in the 2002 draft, when Steve Spurrier coached the team, and started five games that season.

He started all 11 games he played in the following season, but went back to the bench when coach Joe Gibbs, who prefers experienced quarterbacks, became head coach in 2004 and the team traded for Brunell.

“We appreciate Patrick's contributions during his time here with the Washington Redskins,” Gibbs said in a statement. “Through this entire process we always wanted what was best for Patrick and in working with him we feel this is where he wants to be. We wish all the best to him and his family and his future with the New York Jets.”

Ramsey started 24 games in his four seasons with the Redskins, completing 55 percent of his passes for 5,649 yards with 34 touchdown passes and 29 interceptions.

Last season, he started one game and finished with 25 passing attempts, by far the fewest in his career. But he was clearly made expendable when the Redskins drafted another quarterback, Jason Campbell, in the first round of last April's draft.

Be interesting to see how all these teams at the top of the draft making QB moves affects the draft and where Leinart and Young and Cutler fall.

I agree. It doesn't seem like teams think a lot of the top 3 QB prospects.

Patrick Ramsey or Damon Huard HMMMMMMMMMM. Only on Planet Carl Peterson is Huard a better option to back-up Trent Green.

And don't give me this crap about Huard knowing the offense. It is one thing to know the offense and another to actually be able to go out there and EXECUTE it effectively.

Carl must still be gun-shy after trading a 6th rounder to STL for Joe Germaine.

I can't believe CP wasn't interested in him. It was only a 6th rounder.

I was definately interested in him and for a 6th rounder, that just makes me mad.

Why give a 6th when CP will get Harrington for free?
