    Could Sanchez Pull an Alex Smith and take a...

    ...PAY CUT???

    Back in 2009 Alex Smith was going into the 5th year of a his bloated rookie contract, which was prior to the current CBA; it did not have the rookie scale. Up to that point, he had put up numbers that would make even Sanchez throw up in his mouth. In 4 years he completed just 54.6% of his passes, threw 19 TDs to 31 INTs and started roughly half the games due of injury or poor play. Like Sanchez it was a far gone conclusion that the 49ers would cut Smith as he was set to make approximately 10M the upcoming season, an amount not commensurate with his play up to date. However, a funny thing happened on the way to the guillotine. Rather than starting over with a new team, Smith restructured his contract and sharply reduced his base salary. In short, he took a massive pay cut. All he asked and was given in return was the "opportunity to compete" for the QB1 spot. In hindsight, this deal turned out great for both parties.

    Maybe, I've missed it but I yet to see this scenario discussed anywhere. I see this as a very possible outcome with Sanchez and the Jets when you look at it from both sides. Here are some reasons I thought off below.

    Sanchez
    1. He loves MM, Lee and the WCO.
    2. It's a competition he could win.
    3. Where else is he going to find a team with a good defense and running game and that's young?
    4. He would have the chance to dish out a WHOLE lot of crow if he were to turn his career around here.

    Jets
    1. At worst Sanchez we have a viable veteran back-up that's PROVEN he can win with a good defense and running game at a reasonable price.
    2. We he will be a good teammate and not a malcontent.
    3. We prove that the "competition" mantra is not just lip service.
    4. We have played ourselves out of contention for a bluechip QB prospect in 2014 and we are still not completely sold on Geno.
    5. Maybe we can flip Sanchez into a draft pick in a couple years like the 49ers did.

    Thoughts?

    Good point. But put yourself in Sanchez's shoes, would you want ****ty as your OC versus MM? And do you think you have a better shot at beating out Bradford or Geno?

    The Jets could trade Sanchez in the offseason because his salary is no longer guaranteed, but they have little leverage because everyone knows he will be cut. As far as your notion that Sanchez could become Alex Smith with the Jets, that is beyond ridiculous. For that to happen he would have to start again and that is something I do not see happening. Mark is done as a Jet, and rightfully so. Time for any of the last few Sanchez lovers to deal with reality.

    If Geno extrapolates his current play out the rest of the season, I don't see Sanchez having any opportunity to compete here. He had the opp this past offseason because Geno was a rookie (and injured) and the Jets could hang their hat on Sanchez winning and Geno learning from the sideline for the year. No way they go back to wide open competition this offseason and potentially bench Geno after what looks to be a 'solid' rookie campaign.

    Having Sanchez around at any price will only be a distraction. He is done here.

    A system that I'd had a chance to thrive in at times vs coming back for an 11mm paycut? Yes, i'd take STL with a strong young defense, the chance to actually compete, and make some coin.

    The only thing I would like to see Sanchez do that is similar to Alex Smith is play for a team other than the NY Jets.

    Hahaha! This is the funniest thread I have seen in a while thank you legler no Sanchez will not be asked to take a pay cut he won't even be offered the #2 even if he offered to cut his salary by 90%. We need a reliable vet to back up geno.. Sorry, mark is gone, long gone in ny. Maybe he can find a backup spot somewhere, if not #2 a #3..

    Unless Geno gets hurt there is no chance Sanchez can beat out Geno!!
