I can't believe we're on the 3rd page of this thread and no one has mentioned that it's almost impossible for us to trade Sanchez.
Not an opinion, a fact. It doesn't work under the cap.
$13M of bonus money accelerates onto this year's cap if we trade him. If they planned on moving him, they wouldn't have extended him. The extension made him next to untradeable.
Thank you for providing this little nugget of reality to the insanity that this tread is. It is contractually IMPOSSIBLE for the Jets to trade Mark Sanchez, even if there was a team certifiably insane enough to take on $20MM of guaranteed money AND give the Jets a draft pick....ANY draft pick
For the Jets to trade Sanchez before June 1, the Jets would have to drop another $8.5 in salary (based on Jason's cap page)... and this would not include signing draft picks. More realistically, the Jets would need to find an extra $13M in cash to get rid of Sanchez.
For anyone who thinks this is a possibility, read that again.
THE JETS WOULD HAVE TO FIND $13M IN CAP ROOM TO DEAL SANCHEZ FOR A 3RD ROUND PICK
THere is, quite literally, no upside for the Jets trading Tebow for a draft pick. Even if Tebow was Matthew Stafford, there would be no upside for the Jets to trade Sanchez for a draft pick
Even if Tebow turns into Steve Young a trade of Sanchez doesn't benefit the Jets.
Most likely Incarcerated Bob did not realize this when he was making **** up. Because even those who hate Tannenbaum don't believe that he would make a deal that would require the Jets to either mortgage their future badly or cut 5 more starters.
