He'll find a place to hold a clipboard for a couple of mil a year and in 2016, on MNF, a starting QB will be down and Sanchez will get the start as a backup (everyone will be like, remember him?), and ESPN will replay the butt-fumble over and over.
I could see the Steelers picking him up. He's actually played well against them in the past and they need a better backup for Ben than an aging Charlie Batch and gimp Leftwich. I'm sure somebody would take a flier. He isn't out of the league bad like Tebow. I mean as a starter he stinks, but as a guy who could play a game or 2 here and there in a pinch, he has shown some competency, certainly more than many other backups.
My friend keeps telling me that the Jets are going to deal Sanchez to Seattle for a 5th round pick. We would still have to foot 75% of Sanchez's salary this season.
I don't know ehere he heard it. I don't if it is true. He said that deal was going to be done before the draft, but because the 5th was in 2014, Idzik decided to wait.
But I'm a little hesitant about moving Sanchez based on the wrong it may do to the salary cap. I guess if we could have all of the cap implications hit us this season, I would do it.
If that is true, Idzik should do it immediately before they change their minds. Don't think there is any other market for the guy. And now that we have drafted a QB, we have even less leverage than we did before.
