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 . . .

Posted: 3/23/2014 10:58pm et

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).

Posted: 3/21/2014 8:32pm et

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.

Posted: 3/20/2014 1:41pm et

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.

Posted: 2/22/2014 8:54pm et

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.

Posted: 2/2/2014 11:30pm et

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.

Posted: 1/30/2014 8:38pm et

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.

Posted: 9/30/2013 11:13pm et

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.

Posted: 9/14/2013 12:19pm et

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.

Posted: 9/13/2013 12:32pm et

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.

Posted: 9/12/2013 9:58am et

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.

Posted: 8/30/2013 12:37am et

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.

Posted: 8/26/2013 7:23pm et

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.

Posted: 8/24/2013 10:31pm et

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.

Posted: 8/23/2013 6:48pm et

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.

Posted: 8/15/2013 8:19pm et

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez will play the first half of the preseason game with the rest of the starters against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday, Aug. 17.

Huddle Up: Sanchez gets a full 30 minutes to try to solidify his grip on the Jets' starting job.

Posted: 8/15/2013 11:21am et

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez was named the starter of the next preseason game this weekend. The starting quarterback job appears to be Sanchez's job to lose for now with QB Geno Smith bothered by a sprained ankle.

Huddle Up: With Santonio Holmes out and Sanchez being... well, Sanchez it's difficult to muster any fantasy enthusiasm for the Jets' passing game.

Posted: 8/6/2013 4:21pm et

New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Morningwheg praised Mark Sanchez and said he has earned the start in the team's first preseason game Friday, Aug. 9. "He's had an outstanding training camp," the coordinator said. "Mark...this is his game. He'll start and go with the ones. And then certainly we'd like to get Geno in just a little bit with the ones, and then he'll take the twos."

Huddle Up: Not much to see here. Whoever wins the job won't have much fantasy value this season given the dearth of talent around them. Still, it will be intriguing to see if Smith can overtake Sanchez this early.

Posted: 7/13/2013 2:45am et

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez said he would bet on himself to win the starting job. "When it comes down to a competition, I just put my money on myself--and bet on myself and go play and go win the job."

Huddle Up: On the bright side, Sanchez has confidence. However, if he holds off Geno Smith in training camp it'll be bad news for the Jets.

Posted: 7/11/2013 12:50pm et

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez will gather Thursday, July 11, with about 15 teammates near his home in Southern California for 'Jets West', which is his annual, players-only passing camp. Sanchez is confident in his abilities, and he looks forward to competition in training camp. 'When it's a straight-up competition for the job, let's roll,' Sanchez said. 'It really doesn't bother me at all. It really doesn't affect my confidence or anything like that. We're competing for something. All right, I'm going to win. That's just how I am.'

Huddle Up: Sanchez has the right attitude at this point, but whether he'll be able to play well enough to keep the job while the rest of franchise is seemingly declining around him is another issue.

Posted: 6/26/2013 6:00pm et

A video of New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez dropping his shorts and exposing his butt while dancing with two women was posted on the internet.

Huddle Up: Didn't he do that in a game last season as well? Good to see Sanchez is singularly focused on beating out Geno Smith for the Jets' starting gig this year.

Posted: 5/24/2013 12:32am et

An anonymous New York Jets player said that the team is skeptical about QB Mark Sanchez and his ability to be successful. 'Everyone on the team likes Mark personally, but there's a general feeling among some of the players that maybe it's time to give someone else a chance.' The player said 80 to 90 percent of the roster agrees with that statement. Sanchez is still trying to figure out the team's new West Coast offense.

Huddle Up: Biting words but still anonymous words. In any case, though, the statement does indicate just how bright the spotlight is on Sanchez, who hit 3-year lows in passing yards (2,883) and TD passes (13) last season.

Posted: 5/23/2013 12:11am et

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said he was disappointed with QB Mark Sanchez after he threw three interceptions during organized team activities Wednesday, May 22. "Yeah, it is. Absolutely. It's a good thing defense makes the plays, but no, I'd rather him not turn the ball over once," Ryan said. "He did a lot of great things, and then those negative things, at the end of the day, that's what gets you beat. And so we got to do a better job of eliminating those turnovers."

Huddle Up: Disappointing performances are pretty much the norm for Sanchez. It would have been a great opportunity for Geno Smith to take hold of the starting gig, but he completed just three of 10 passes with an interception.

Posted: 5/16/2013 12:40pm et

New York Jets starting QB Mark Sanchez should have an edge on the starting quarterback job over rookie QB Geno Smith after David Garrard's decision to retire, according to former head coach Herm Edwards. 'This is now Mark Sanchez's job to lose,' Edwards said.

Huddle Up: The once-booming Jets QB circus is now down to a couple rings with the release of Tim Tebow and Garrard's decision to retire on Wednesday. Sure the incumbent Sanchez is the odds-on favorite to beat out the second-round pick Smith, but even if he does, it's only going to take a couple of Sanchez turnovers in MetLife Stadium before the calls for the rook hit a fever pitch.

Posted: 5/2/2013 1:09pm et

New York Jets general manager John Idzik said QB Mark Sanchez's $8.25 million salary will not be a factor when the team decides whether QB Mark Sanchez will be on the team this season.

Huddle Up: The consensus is that if the Jets don't envision Sanchez starting, he'll be released. But also consider that the Jets just had to eat the remaining money on Tim Tebow's contract after the QB was recently let go, and it's hard to believe that the franchise would allow so much money to be tied up in QBs not on the roster.
