NFL  > General NFL  > If cut from NYJ, Sanchez may find new life on another team
January 23, 2014, 05:34 PM
According to a report on the SI Wire, Mark Sanchez will be sought by at least one un-named coach, possibly more coaches, who said Sanchez would walk in as the starter from day one.

Perhaps a change of scenery, with lower expectations, will boost Sanchez back to the mold of his rookie and second years.

Or, he may get one un-named coach fired for taking a chance on him.

We'll see how things develop.

I read the Raiders want an experienced QB to come in take over and possibly mentor a 3rd or 4th round QB.
Sanchez could fill that role, and as you said a change of scenery could be what Mark needs, then again we all remember the "butt fumble" and he might be hopeless.

Could be wrong but I think he will come cheap $$$ to whatever team thinks they can make him a starter.

Be pretty funny if he leads a crummy team to the playoffs and the Jets are still paying him for 2 or 3 more years.

a new life? no..the dead stay dead.

umm.......sanchez being '''sought-after'' by anybody is a ploy by his agent to get a bidding-war/intere$t.........err.......anything for that matter.....?!

Stranger things have happened.

I see 2 good fits for Sanchez. That is with the Jags or Vikings. He is better than any QB's either one of those 2 teams have. I think Pryor is decent with the Raiders.

If the Vikings have a brain and it seems they do with their new HC, they should stick with Cassell.

January 24, 2014  06:35 AM ET

If the Vikings were smart they would give Cassell a real opportunity. Sanchez is DONE! Buttfumble ruined this guy. lol

What SI left out of the story at the insistance of Sanchez's agent is that these un-named coaches or their team owners own a chain of gas stations and want Sanchez to manage one or more of those. I normally wouldn't put much credence to my story BUT my description fits at least one team I can think of off the top of my head (Cleveland), so take it for what you will.

Makes some sense, although Cleveland has not been able to hire a coach so instead of an unnamed coach, it's more of a non-existent coach.

Yeah!

I just don't know why they're having trouble after firing the last coach after just one year on the job. You'd think a bunch of ex-HC would jump at that chance.....NOT!!!

must be quite the toxic environment, like Miami trying to find a GM. All the candidates for both jobs have all bailed.

Could you post the Butt Fumble & that MLB vid from last year when the runner ran face first into the defensive player's rear end? Then we could vote on which one is funnier.

Great? Classic? Maybe for the blooper films.

I don't think Sanchez has any more guaranteed $ in his contract. If the Jets cut him they get away from nearly $40 mil over next 3 years (and another $10 mil in incentives, but fat chance those would have come to fruition anyway).

For Pats fans it sure as **** is!!!

January 24, 2014  01:20 PM ET

But I think even if they release him the Jets still have to take a salary cap hit of $1.6 mil per year over the next three years due to Sanchez' signing bonus in 2012 being spread over the life of his contract. Could be worse.

January 24, 2014  01:23 PM ET

If he comes back healthy he might get a shot somewhere else. This is not a glowing endorsement, but there may be a couple of worse QBs starting in the NFL right now.

When a player is released, the hit is the balance all in one year, not spread out.
