The Jets will release Sanchez as a June 1 cut designee. No way does any new GM hook any portion of his star to Sanchez. He WILL BE CUT.
If Sanchez stays on, it will be as our #2 QB. Therefore we will not be paying someone like a Mark Brunell (or Tebow) a #2 QB salary, that we otherwise would be paying once Sanchez is gone.
This, in fact, will save the Jets about $2 million in salary per year, vs dumping Sanchez right away.
and i hope they boo him everytime he steps on the field and tears into him like that video that was posted earlier on the Thanksgiving game. You have to be a complete moron to believe he can be a QB much less a QB in ny.......He couldn't hold namath or o'briens jockstrap.
If all of the above happens...the only one I'd be sorry about is Landry...but I think Devito is a good player. Maybe not equally as good run vs pass....but he could stay...
I also would not mind Scott as a cheap backup...if he can live with it I can live with it. But NOT starter over younger/faster players with decent upside.
if the jets are stuck with sanchez, as long as they bring in a qb to compete then it's okay. rex already made a big step in benching him for a game. sometimes that's all it takes for coach to make big decision.
We both agree that Woody will spend very close to The Cap.
But in my scenario (keeping Sanchez), there is $2 Million more left over for the other 52 players because we wont need to bring in an additional back-up QB (like a Brunell-type) onto the roster....keeping Sanchez as back-up QB lets us save that money (approx $2 Million salary).
Or do it in the draft (see Wilson or Luck this past year).
No competition. No controversy. Hand the starting QB job to new guy, as if Sanchez were not here.

You are probably right but I wouldn't rule a trade out completely. There are deal sweeteners that Sanchez might sign off on; for example, Sanchez might want to approve a change of scenery and the jets may pay part of his salary. He could signoff on the trade and the Jets wouldn't be liable for another 8.3 mill.
If he sits for a year his career is most likely over.
Watching Nfl network ... Looks like mark is coming back next year ... As a starter??????? God help us.
