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 officially released QB Mark Sanchez Friday, March 21.
Huddle Up: You knew this was coming, and with Michael Vick now officially a Jet it was time to let Sanchez walk.

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.

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez underwent season-ending shoulder surgery Tuesday, Oct. 8.
Huddle Up: It's the season that was never meant to be for Sanchez, who was injured in the preseason. Ironically, though, his surgery comes a day after Geno Smith's best game as a pro (16-of-20, 199 yards, 3 TDs, no turnovers) upped the Jets' record to a surprising 3-2.

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair his torn labrum and is expected to be sidelined for four to six months. Sanchez initially tried to rehab the injury without surgery but it did not work.
Huddle Up: Sanchez was already on the short-term IR list, but now his season -- and possibly his career with the Jets -- are officially over -- all because of a hit he took after unnecessarily being sent into play in the fourth quarter of a preseason game.

The New York Jets have placed QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) on the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list.
Huddle Up: Sanchez will miss the next eight games but it's entirely possible that his season - and career in New York - have come to an end. Geno Smith will be the Jets' starter for the rest of the year, with Brady Quinn and Matt Simms backing him up.

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez has been advised by multiple doctors that he shouldn't have surgery right now, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Hey, it's Friday; who wants to have surgery on a Friday? Sanchez remains sidelined with his shoulder injury, with no timetable set for his return. Not that the fantasy world has noticed.

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez is likely to have surgery after renowned Dr. James Andrews confirmed the quarterback has a labral tear in the right shoulder, according to league sources.
Huddle Up: It's unlikely Sanchez will be back with the Jets to battle Geno Smith next year; he can focus on his recovery and start looking for a new team in the offseason.

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez is not expected to be ready for Week 1 because of his deep shoulder bruise. He has not been able to throw a ball at this point.
Huddle Up: Count on Geno Smith starting against the Bucs until further notice.

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 26. He will not play in the team's final preseason game and is considered questionable for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Sanchez reportedly suffered a bruised right (throwing) shoulder joint in the late-game snafu Saturday night, and the Jets and Rex Ryan are now uncharacteristically tight-lipped regarding the QB's health. There's still a little less than 2 weeks to go, but right now, bank on rookie Geno Smith getting the Week 1 start against the Bucs.

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) left the team's preseason game early Saturday, Aug. 24, after suffering a right shoulder injury.
Huddle Up: Sanchez was playing in the fourth quarter for some reason behind the Jets' second-string offensive line. The result was he got sacked three times and suffered a shoulder injury. This after rookie Geno Smith struggled in his first start. The Jets' quarterback picture is as murky as ever after Saturday night.

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (toe) is dealing with a toenail problem. 'They're digging a hole in Mark Sanchez's toe big enough to pull a half dollar out of it 'cause he's got some nail that's infected. He doesn't blink, he doesn't tell me,' quarterbacks coach David Lee said, pointing out how Sanchez plays through nicks he picks up.
Huddle Up: Geno Smith will get the start Saturday night against the Giants and reports are the job could be his if he plays well. This battle could very well end up going into the fourth preseason game if both quarterbacks struggle Saturday night.
