Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly has told reporters he would be open to trade offers for QB Mark Sanchez, presumably to let Sanchez have a chance at the No. 1 job with another team. Kelly also added that does not mean Sanchez will be dealt, as they need his depth-chart experience behind QB Nick Foles, but the team is always looking to improve.
Huddle Up: The Eagles would love to turn their low-budget offseason signing of Sanchez into some bonus draft picks, and Sanchez has done his part by playing well during the preseason.

Updating a previous report, the Philadelphia Eagles agreed to terms with QB Mark Sanchez (Jets) Thursday, March 27. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Sanchez, who missed the entire 2013 season due to a preseason shoulder injury, is seemingly in line to back up starter Nick Foles, but for all that's known at the moment, we could be headed for an open competition in training camp. Stay tuned . . .

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said the team has some interest in free- agent QB Mark Sanchez (Jets), because they do not have an experienced backup on the roster.
Huddle Up: Yeah, you can call current listed No. 2 QB Austin Davis inexperienced, and Sanchez could also find himself starting given Sam Bradford's injury history (13 missed starts over the past 3 seasons).

The New York Jets have until Monday, March 24, to make a decision on QB Mark Sanchez, who is due a $2 million roster bonus Tuesday, March 25.
Huddle Up: The Sanchez rumors have run the gamut, but it seems like a parting of ways would ultimately be the best scenario for both parties.

The New York Jets met with the representatives for QB Mark Sanchez Friday, Feb. 22 to discuss his future. While nothing was resolved, the two sides will keep an open line of communication. Sanchez is expected to return to New Jersey next week to rehab at the Jets facility. It is believed a decision will have to be made on Sanchez by March 25. The expectation is that he will ultimately be released.
Huddle Up: Tough to see Sanchez getting another shot in New York. At least one other team has reportedly indicated Sanchez could walk into their facilities and become the starter; now Sanchez and his agent need to identify that team.

The New York Jets are expected to release QB Mark Sanchez before he is scheduled to receive a $2 million roster bonus in March.
Huddle Up: Of course, the Jets will try and trade the former first-round pick, but his value decreases the closer it gets to the roster-bonus deadline.

Former New York Jets FB Tony Richardson and LB Bart Scott are among the former players that believe QB Mark Sanchez will not be with the Jets next season. 'For Mark and the organization, it's time for a fresh start. He deserves a fresh start. It would be hard to put people in the stands if you go back to the table with Mark,' Richardson said.
Huddle Up: Rex Ryan is returning to the Jets, but don't look for his former starting QB to follow suit. To echo Richardson, it's time for a fresh start for the 2009 first-round pick.

One coach of a quarterback-needy team believes New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) wouldn't be out of a job long if the Jets cut him this offseason. New York would save $8.3 million of the $13.1 million salary cap figure if they release him. 'We'd take Sanchez,' the coach said. 'He'd be the starter as soon as he walked in the door for us.' Sanchez has been rehabbing his right shoulder in Alabama after having surgery in October.
Huddle Up: It's a QB-needy league, and a healthy Sanchez might actually be an upgrade for more than a few teams. Stop laughing.
