All that Mark Sanchez needed to do was pass a physical before he proceeded with signing a contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. So far, according to CBSSports.com’s Jason La Canfora, one half of that deal is done as Mark Sanchez has checked out medically with the Eagles and is expected to sign there within the next 24 hours.

It’s a clean slate in Philly for Sanchez and he enters an environment that has been historically awesome for backups. Michael Vick overtook Kevin Kolb’s starting job and never gave it back while Nick Foles subbed in for Vick and nearly won an MVP trophy.
Sanchez is slated to be the third string quarterback behind Matt Barkley, but just getting away from New York has got to be worth whatever the Eagles will be paying him in 2014.
