What are they really going to learn that they can't see on film and that which is not obvious?
It's not just the types of plays, the Jets want our signal calls at the line, names of audibles, names of fake audibles, etc etc. There is a lot of coding that goes on when the QB is under center and yelling out colors, numbers and such. That is information that is difficult to decode from film, and it can be much easier to understand if you have a translator available. Now whether or not Grimes knows these things, or knows the current signals is another story, but if the Jets really wanted this info I would have expected them to sign Keenum.
I think they are simply a team hurting at RB, and they want to try him out. It's a cheap trial at about 21k a game. They can cut him in 3 weeks if he sucks.
