It appears that Mark Sanchez’s career with the New York Jets is currently on borrowed time. The man who is best known for his infamous ‘Butt-Fumble’ against the New England Patriots a couple of seasons ago, hasn’t proved to be the answer that the Jets have been looking for.
Since then, they’ve drafted Geno Smith, who hasn’t proved to be the answer either. But Smith has a lot more time with this organization than Mark Sanchez does.
According to Ian Rapoport on Twitter, the Jets are yet to tell Sanchez that they will be parting ways with the veteran quarterback.

What’s also interesting is that Rapoport names Michael Vick as a possible option. Vick has suffered a handful of injuries over the last couple of years, mainly rib related. It’s clear who will be the starting quarterback in Philadelphia.
But when it comes to the New York Jets, the starting job is still up for grabs. Even though Rex Ryan may say that Geno Smith may be their starting quarterback in 2014 whenever Sanchez gets released, Vick will end up beating the rookie to win the job.
