Mark Sanchez Must Start Pondering Life After New York Jets
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez currently awaits the final decision on his future with the organization. The Jets have met with Sanchez’s representative this past Friday at the NFL scouting combine to discuss what will transpire within the next few weeks. Expected to be released soon as a salary cap casualty, Sanchez must now think about life after the Jets.
Sanchez continues to rehab throughout the offseason and so far, he has been throwing the football with accuracy and speed. He is actually expected to be at the Jets’ training facility sometime next week to allow medical staff and GM John Idzik an opportunity to see how far along he is in his progress.
It’s expected he should be ready for training camp and OTAs come this spring, hence why he’s been literally rehabbing and working out every day to make sure he’s ready for what will be an emotional ride into free agency.
Keep in mind there is a March 25 deadline when the Jets must meet to make a decision on his future in a green and white uniform. If Sanchez is on the roster by that date, he will earn a $2 million roster bonus, and it’s clear that won’t happen since the Jets are moving forward without him. The outcome all points to his eventual release as the Jets plan to add another veteran quarterback to their roster to help compete with and develop quarterback Geno Smith.
At the end of the day, the NFL is a cold hard business. Players come and go, but memories remain the same. While Sanchez had an interesting career with the Jets, change needs to happen for both sides involved. Fans are tired of seeing Sanchez consistently struggle and invent new ways to turn over the football.
Sanchez has most likely grown frustrated with all the boos and chatter that he simply is not an NFL-caliber kind of quarterback, despite his college and early success in the league. Regardless, Sanchez will find a new home in the NFL and will hopefully resurrect a once-promising career. Expect to see him sign with another team in free agency and have a huge Gang Green chip on his shoulder to take the NFL by storm.
Never underestimate Sanchez because as much as critics bash him for his poor play, he has shown numerous times that he is capable of major success.
