Top 5 Landing Spots For Mark Sanchez

Top 5 Landing Spots for the Sanchize

Mark Sanchez

After a long wait, it's finally happened -- QB Mark Sanchez has been released by the New York Jets. This move could have happened months ago, but due to numerous circumstances, Sanchez technically kept his job. Now, he's a free man. He can start a new chapter in his career, which has to be a great feeling.

Here are five teams that make sense for the former No. 5 overall pick:

5. St. Louis Rams

The Rams need an insurance policy for Sam Bradford, who's coming off of ACL surgery. You never know if a guy is going to be the same coming off a major injury, or if he'll be as effective. Bradford will probably be fine, but Sanchez would make for a solid No. 2 in St. Louis.

4. Chicago Bears

The Bears need a backup after the exit of Josh McCown. Sanchez would be a decent No. 2 behind Jay Cutler, and we know there would be no QB controversy between the two. But could you imagine if Sanchez ever played in Chicago and did poorly? The fans would boo him out of Soldier Field.

3. Tennesee Titans

Jake Locker is the man in Tennessee right now, there's no doubt about that. But if you're the Sanchize and you want a chance at climbing from No. 2 to No. 1 on the depth chart, Tennessee might be a good place to do it. Locker has never been able to stay healthy, so he could get another shot via an injury.

2. Cincinnati Bengals

Andy Dalton didn't play well for a sizable portion of 2013. The Bengals would give him an outside shot at starting if Dalton comes out and plays poorly in 2014. He'd have much better weapons on offense than he's ever had before, and let's face it, AJ Green could probably make him look respectable.

1. Cleveland Browns

If the Sanchize still thinks he's a starter, he'll probably consider joining the Browns. Their QB situation is wide open and he'd have a chance to win the starting job in training camp, barring of course the Browns selecting a QB early on in the 2014 draft.

Has Mark Sanchez played his best football? I don't think so. But I don't think his ceiling is much higher.
