New York Jets: QB Mark Sanchez Could Get Fresh Start in 2014 Free Agency
According to recent reports, a number of NFL teams would be intrigued by New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez assuming he were to be released this offseason. Along with two consecutive shaky seasons on the field with 52 combined turnovers, he is coming of a major shoulder injury. Great team success initially is well documented as Sanchez led New York to AFC Championship Games his first two years.
Many including myself have brought up that tremendous defense and running game as major factors in those runs. Sanchez performed very well, though, in those postseason games, and demonstrated flashes during the regular season as well. In 2010, the Jets recorded their highest win total since 1998’s 12-4 final record. There are a number of teams in need of a better starting quarterback entering the 2014 campaign.
The Cleveland Browns likely will move on from Brandon Weeden, with Jason Campbell and Brian Hoyer also not a capable long-term solution. I already mentioned in my opinion that Johnny Manziel would be a nice fit; however, he should not start right away.
Sanchez himself showed that some young signal callers need time on the bench to absorb everything. Others may disagree, though, and he may be “thrown to the wolves.” An anonymous source stated that No. 6 would immediately start for their team. An ideal situation for him in this attempt of resurrecting his career could be a trip home. This California native and former USC star may benefit from signing with the Oakland Raiders. Here he would enjoy a smaller market along with speed receivers like Jacoby Ford and Denarius Moore. Other scenarios are also possible. Believe or not, he could be an upgrade over Matt McGloin and/or Terrell Pryor. As long as there is a running game for balance accompanying solid receivers, Sanchez can make plays.
