Remember folks the cap next year for the Jets will be much better and they will be better able to absorb a big hit then this year. I have a feeling that all they are going to do is just move the bulk of money owed Sanchez to next year.
Mark is aware that the offense needs help and with the current state of the cap getting talent to help it will be hard. So if he restructures it can be a win win for both parties.
The Jets get cap room to work some free agency magic and Sanchez has a more talented team with which he can potential revitalize his career with.
If it doesn't work out next year the cap hit is more doable and both parties part ways.
Just my 2 cents.
