The more interesting nugget in my opinion is that Schefter stated Idzik was a big supporter of Tavaris Jackson in Seattle and he could be an option for the Jets. I am not so sure I like him as any sort of upgrade over Sanchez.
More crap throwing against the wall to see if anything will stick by the media. I am 95 percent sure that Andy Reid is going to Arizona.
This idea that the Jets are only going to be able to afford a veteran minimum salaried quarterback is silly. At the start of the league year, The Jets are going to be 12 million dollars under the cap just by cutting three backups(Tebow,JSmith and ESmith) and two aging veteran players(Scott/Pace). That's before any players have their contracts restructured.
When playing the guessing game in the media. You can guess that the Jets will have 3 QB's next season. Sanchez, Veteran QB to compete with Sanchez and 2nd or 3rd round QB taken in the draft for future. The media will begin to start inserting veteran QB names to fit that equation. Jackson/Moore/Campbell/Kolb etc
