The New York Kets cut Mark Sanchez loose the other day after mostly all of the quarterback holes around the NFL were filled. Not even the Oakland Raiders have a need for Sanchez anymore and that was his most likely landing spot had he been cut before they acquired Matt Schaub from the Houston Texans.
But all is not lost for Sanchez, as there are still plenty of landing spots for him, albeit ones that won’t have readily available chances for him to start. One of the last spots that could potentially lead to starting time for Sanchez is in Cleveland, where the Browns have interest in him and could end up working out for him in 2014.
The Browns say they like Brian Hoyer, but he’s their only experienced quarterback. They reportedly showed some interest in Matt Schaub before he was traded to the Oakland Raiders. The Browns could draft one, possibly with the No. 4 overall pick. The Sanchez connection here is coach Mike Pettine, formerly the Jets’ defensive coordinator.
Sanchez is far fem a solid option, but he’s going to be given a chance somewhere to see if he operates differently outside of New York. His tenure there was tumultuous, but he could have something left and all it takes is the right situation for Sanchez to revive his career.
