The New York Jets have to be kicking themselves after missing an opportunity to participate in this year’s playoffs after they were eliminated from contention following a 14-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Monday night as Mark Sanchez struggled once again as the quarterback threw for just 131 yards to go along with one touchdown and four interceptions. Now, it appears the Jets are looking at all options heading into 2013–including trading their so-called beloved quarterback.
With the way things have gone during the 2012 season, the Jets claim they won’t be opposed to trading Sanchez during the offseason, but the chances of a deal like this going through and happening seem slim with the type of contract the quarterback would bring along. Whether he’s on the Jets or with a different team, Sanchez is guaranteed to make $8.25 million next season no matter what–which makes trading him even more unlikely.
With the type of numbers Sanchez has put up throughout his career, no team is going to be willing to bring him on board for the 2013 season unless the Jets agree to pay a majority of the guaranteed money. For a player that’s thrown for 17 touchdowns or less in three of his first four seasons along with 13 touchdowns and 17 interceptions this season, the market for Sanchez certainly won’t be a popular one.
Take everything into consideration–it’s safe to say the Jets won’t have much success with trying to trade Sanchez and he’ll most likely still be on the roster in 2013.
