It appears as if we’re headed toward a QB swap of sorts between the New York Jets and the Philadelphia Eagles as Chris Mortensen is reporting that Mark Sanchez is set to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Sanchez “failed physical” termination w Jets was protocol. Won’t affect next step – signing with Eagles. He’s on good recovery from surgery

Of course, as Ian Rapoport from NFL.com added, this all depends on how the Eagles team doctors view Sanchez’s health following shoulder surgery, which they are currently taking a look at.

Last week, after leading the franchise to two AFC Championship Games during his stint with the team, the Jets released Sanchez, and we learned today that the determination was a failed physical. Minutes later, the Jets announced the signing of former Eagles QB Michael Vick.
