People seem to think that this contract is written in stone but if his agent & Mark agree to redo the structure of the contract so a move can be made they can do it.
He's out of here & he will no way stay here to sit on the bench, Jet fans don't want to see him again.
Coming off the bench due to injury or what have you, MetLife would explode in boos, he is done in NY.
Actually, I was thinking this plays out with Sanchez being given an ultimatum from Tanny.
Take a paycut or face your immediate release.
That's the same ultimatum they gave Chad Pennington back in 2006 and I believe it applies here.
First of all, NO ONE in the league is going to ever pay Sanchez the kind of money he's making right now. So assuming he opts to get cut, he'd get the guaranteed portion of his contract with the Jets, but he would lose some pay and would never be able to recover it with another team.
Second of all, if he opts to refuse a paycut, every personnel guy in the league would never give him another contract because they know he's a greedy and selfish player.
Third of all, if he opts to accept a paycut, he can stay here and compete in a straight up QB competition. This way he's still employed and has the possibility, if he hits on all of his incentives, to regain a good portion of what he lost in his contract right now.
Now don't get me wrong, I have no hope for Sanchez now. I think he's done in NY. But given his contract situation, I don't believe the Jets can outright release him right now. So him accepting a paycut is what would be best for both parties. Sanchez gets to stay in NY and the Jets free up serious cap space to go after much needed talent for the team.
