The New York Jets have been trying to climb out of the dark depths they’ve found themselves in recently and one way that everyone thought the team would move on would be by getting rid of quarterback Mark Sanchez. But while the man behind the Butt Fumble seems to be looking less and less like an option at quarterback in New York, his tenure with the team may not be as over as we thought.
According to Mike Florio from ProFootballTalk.com, the Jets haven’t yet cut Sanchez and until they do that, he’s a candidate to return in 2014.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, it’s still too early to know how it will play out. Whatever the Jets offer Sanchez on a reduced contract could be more than what another team would pay.
This would seem to be the exact opposite of not only the direction the team looked to be going, but also the exact opposite of something fans would want. There’s no guarantee Sanchez will be back, but there’s now apparently no guarantee that he won’t be.
