Jets can't threaten Sanchez with getting cut because he and his agent know it would be a cap killer for the Jets.
It will not be a cap killer to cut Sanchez If he is a June 1 cut. 12mil this year and 5mill next year is the same as keeping him this year at 12.8mill and cutting him next year which would cost an additional 5mill in dead money.
