Mark Sanchez lighting up preseason


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez is 18 of 22 for 196 yards and two touchdowns through two preseason games. He threw just one incompletion Friday night against the Patriots, posting a 112.2 passer rating, reports ESPN.com.

It would take a lot for the Eagles to consider trading Sanchez.

Sanchez has played so well that there's no question he's the No. 2 QB, according to The Star-Ledger. "Every day he's here," Kelly said, "there is an energy you can feed off of from him."

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"I've said many times that we will always look to add quality players at the quarterback position," Kelly said. ""We consider it a key position in this game, so having the chance to add Mark to that group was a no-brainer for us.

"Mark has started 68 games in his career and has taken his teams deep into the playoffs multiple times, so we really like what he brings to the table from an experience standpoint. I also had the chance to see Mark play in college and have always had respect for his game and athletic ability."

"I feel like this team, this coach, the kind of firepower they have, there's just an exciting element to being here in Philadelphia," Sanchez said, per Philly.com. "Coach Kelly really is on the cutting edge of the NFL. He's one of those guys who has a really exciting vision for the future. I think he is on a constant pursuit of a competitive edge. He's an excitable person. I think as an offensive mind, I'm going to do nothing but learn here."

Report: Mark Sanchez close to signing with Eagles


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) The Eagles are moving quickly in their attempt to find a new backup quarterback, with Newsday reporting Wednesday Mark Sanchez will undergo a physical Thursday when he meets with the team.

Less than a week after Michael Vick left for the Jets, the Eagles are expected to sign Sanchez according to the report, assuming he makes it through his physical without issue. Sanchez missed all of last season due to a torn right labrum, and was cut by the Jets following the Vick signing.

Sanchez would bring some experience to the backup role, having started 62 games over the course of his first four NFL seasons. 


Kelly interested in Mark Sanchez


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/26/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said Wednesday at the NFL owners meetings that he likes free agent quarterback Mark Sanchez as a potential replacement for Michael Vick, who signed with the Jets. Sanchez was cut by the Jets last week.

"We lost Mike, and we're always trying to look in that backup position behind Nick (Foles) and what we can do to bolster it," Kelly said. "We'll see where we go. It's a position of need for us. We played three quarterbacks last year, and I don't think you can ever look at your roster and say you're good at quarterback. 

"Mark is a very, very good athlete. He's started 60 some-odd games in this league. He's got great experience. There's a lot of positive qualities with him."

Rams say they're interested in Mark Sanchez


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

I can't say how much, but there certainly would be interest,'' Fisher told USA Today. "I don't have a backup with experience on the roster right now.''

Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer worked with Sanchez when both were with the Jets. Sanchez would seem an ideal backup to Sam Bradford.

Jets could keep Mark Sanchez in 2014


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/7/2014) There's a chance the Jets could keep quarterback Mark Sanchez on a revised deal for 2014, reports Pro Football Talk.

Sanchez isn't expected to return with a $9 million base salary and a $2 million roster bonus due later this month. But the report says there's a possibility Sanchez could come back for lesser money.

The report says the final outcome depends on whether the teams potentially interested in Sanchez find other quarterbacks elsewhere in the early days of free agency.


Ryan proud of Geno Smith, not sure on Mark Sanchez status


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/4/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan said nothing has changed with the future of quarterback Mark Sanchez coming back to the team in 2014, reports the Newark Star-Ledger . He also is excited about the future for Geno Smith.

"We'll just let that play out and see what happens," Ryan said about Sanchez. "But it's nothing I'm going to make a comment on."

Sanchez is in the last year of his contract with the Jets and is set to make $9 million with a $2 million signing bonus later this month if he's still on the team. Because of his $13.1 million cap charge for 2014, he is expected to be cut.

As for Smith, Ryan had nothing but praise for the second-year passer.

"I really like where he left off," he said. "The last month of the season was probably his best. I know he had some rocky spots, to say the least. And so did we as a team. But to finish where he did, I think he was the second-highest rated quarterback at the end of the season. Very few turnovers. he ran the ball effectively as well. So he used his legs, used his arms, cut down on turnovers. I think if he could play that way, we're going to be tough to beat."


Two Mark Sanchez scenarios floated


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) In the unlikely event the Jets want to keep quarterback Mark Sanchez, there are two scenarios that could unfold, reports ESPN.com. Both involve the Jets asking Sanchez to take a big pay cut.

If they try to cut his base salary from $9 million to $1 million, "it would be insulting, a strong indication he'd have no chance to unseat [Geno Smith]," the report said. If the Jets offer $3 million to $5 million with incentives, "it would show they consider him a viable starting option."


Jets not ruling out sequel to Mark Sanchez-Geno Smith battle


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) Jets general manager John Idzik said he wouldn't mind seeing Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith battle for the starting quarterback job again this summer, reports the New York Post.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Dumping three contracts would give Jets money to spend

Mark Sanchez could be in demand


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/22/2014) There could be a market for Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez if he's released this offseason as expected, reports the New York Post

The report says one coach of a quarterback-needy team said his team already has discussed Sanchez internally as an option to be its starting quarterback in 2014.

"We'd take Sanchez," the coach said. "He'd be the starter as soon as he walked in the door for us."

The Jets are being tight-lipped when it comes to their plans for Sanchez, who has three years left on his contract. But he has a $13.1 million salary-cap figure for 2014 and the Jets would save $8.3 million against the cap by releasing him.

Sanchez is currently rehabilitating his right shoulder in Birmingham, Ala. He had surgery in October on the shoulder after injuring it in an August preseason game.


Report: Mark Sanchez likely to be waived


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/1/2014) Quarterback Mark Sanchez is expected to be cut by the Jets rather than compete with Geno Smith for the starting job next season, according to the New York PostSanchez has three years remaning on his contract, which calls for him to earn $9 million in 2014.

General manager John Idzik gave a rather cryptic response when asked about the future of Sanchez with the team.

"We'll get to that in time," he said. "He is a Jet. We consider all our guys Jets until we make a decision or something happens that changes that."

Sanchez lost his starting spot to Smith and injured his shoulder. He did not play a down this year.


Rex Ryan: 'Mark Sanchez is not dead'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2013) Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith was just named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for leading a comeback victory over Atlanta on Monday Night Football. Mark Sanchez is now just an injured second-stringer.

But Rex Ryan expressed passionately that the latter is still a player on his team and will be treated accordingly.

"We're acting like he's dead. Mark Sanchez is not dead," Ryan told the media. "Sanchez is going to be 100 percent healthy, guys. It's not like his career's over. He's going to play again."

Ryan declined to specify when asked if Sanchez will ever play for the Jets again. He merely emphasized that the current task is to rehabilitate his injured shoulder.
