    To play or not play Sanchez?

    The Jets are actually in a tough position here right now. If they bench Sanchez the rest of the way they are effectively killing any chance of trading him in the offseason (even if they have to eat half his contract to do it).

    The question is: Do you start Sanchez the rest of the way against weaker competition hoping he will play better and entice some other team to pick him up in the offseason, or do you start McElroy the rest of the way and gaurantee that Sanchez will be here next season because no one else will want him?


    If Sanchez can right himself, you may be able to trade him. If he can't right himself, then you're stuck with him next season. What should the Jets do here? Should they hope to improve his value by starting him, or should they go with McElroy and be forced to keep Sanchez one more season?

    They're not trading him. There's way too much guaranteed money for them to be able to trade him. Sanchez is here next year no matter what, in some sort of capacity.

    So his contract is guaranteed by the Jets regardless if another team is willing to work a trade for him? I think he's owed like $8 million next season. The Jets can't eat half his contract and have another team pick up the remaining $4 million? This would at least give the Jets $4 million in cap space to use on another offensive impact player to assist McElroy with.
