Mark Sanchez, the former New York Jets starting quarterback and current Philadelphia Eagles, has been discussed as a potential trade target for the St. Louis Rams after the team lost starting quarterback Sam Bradford to a torn ACL for the second straight year.
A lot of the discussion generated because of the Rams’ reported interest in Sanchez during free agency and his experience under Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, but Sanchez doesn’t seem to think a trade will happen.
In fact, Sanchez classifies a trade as doubtful.
“I think they would say something or my agent would say something,” Sanchez said, via CSNPhilly.com. “If those people aren’t talking to me about it, I seriously doubt it’s happening.”
St. Louis appears committed to moving forward with Shaun Hill as the team’s starter, so Sanchez is right that a trade is probably highly unlikely.
Of course, crazier things have happened so you never know what Jeff Fisher and company could have in mind until after the NFL trade deadline passes later this year.
