Most people now feel that Sanchez is a limited QB who cannot see the field, makes poor decisions, iand easily rattled. I think most of the league believes he is a limited QB who can be a good game manager with an excellent defense and running. At best he is a guy who can put together a great drive here or there, but will never be anything better than an average QB.
If any GM trades for Sanchez with his current salary for any draft picks straight up should be immediately fired. That is why no GM is going to do it. If the Jets convert some of his salary to a signing bonus and eat it themselves (getting his base salary down to $4 million or so), then maybe. Maybe if Sanchez is willing to redo his deal with a new team and take a paycut.
You guys are dreaming if you think any GM is going to eat a $8 million salary for a guy with a ceiling of being a good game manager.
Agree with that, but, as you suggest, the Jets could eat $3 million of it and have him re-negotiate going forward. That may be palatable for another team and is certainly palatable for the Jets.
