While there were some initial discussions, it looks like New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez will not be headed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

According to Pro Football Talk:

The move would make a lot of sense for the Jets, who surely would have cut Sanchez by now, if his $8.25 million base salary for 2013 weren’t fully guaranteed without offset.

Multiple reports have since emerged that the Buccaneers aren’t interested in Sanchez.  Several of the reports have confirmed, however, that his name did indeed come up as a potential add-on to the deal.

If the Bucs would take Sanchez, it wouldn’t mean they necessarily want him.  It would mean that they want Revis badly enough to remove from the Jets the obligation to pay Sanchez $8.25 million guaranteed — and to carry the cap space that is consumed along with it.

The Buccaneers seem to have no interest in Sanchez, so a deal sending Revis their way would almost undoubtedly avoid including the Jets bust,

If the team is looking to add Sanchez, it could get very interesting.
