After enduring the critical media pressure of New York City the last five years, Sanchez should find the low-pressure role of backing up Nick Foles a welcome break in 2014, even if it's a bit humbling...

Mark Sanchez: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Sanchez (shoulder) is a full participant in OTAs, Geoff Mosher of reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Coach Chip Kelly declared Sanchez a full-go after he missed all of the 2014 season following shoulder surgery, ultimately earning his release from the Jets. While he won't absorb contact during the OTAs, Sanchez will be able to partake in every drill as he looks to familiarize himself with Kelly's offense. Sanchez will vie with Matt Barkley for top backup duties behind Nick Foles.
The Eagles and Sanchez (shoulder) have reportedly agreed to terms on a contract,'s Ian Rapoport reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Eagles are evidently comfortable with Sanchez's health after checking out his surgically-repaired shoulder. The addition of the former Jet gives the team an experienced option behind starting QB Nick Foles, with Sanchez thus an injury away from the fantasy relevance tied to helming coach Chip Kelly's offense.
Sanchez is in Philadelphia to have his surgically-repaired throwing shoulder checked out by the Eagles, reports.

Sanchez (shoulder) is expected to sign with the Eagles, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Since Sanchez is recovering from shoulder surgery, the Eagles plan to have the QB undergo a medical evaluation, before any such deal is completed, but assuming no hitches on that front, the former Jets starter could be poised to join an Eagles QB corps that currently includes Nick Foles and backup Matt Barkley.
Sanchez (shoulder), who was released by the Jets on Friday, is on the Rams' radar, reports. "I'd say that there is interest," Rams coach Jeff Fisher noted Sunday. "I can't say how much. But there certainly would be interest. I don't have a backup with experience on the roster right now."

This has been expected for at least seven or eight months and arguably up to two years. Barring a massive leap, Sanchez never figured to make it to 2015, the second year of the three-year extension he signed in March 2012. He obviously never made that leap, instead struggling through 2012 and missing all of 2013. His shoulder should be healthy in time for 2014, and he could conceivably be a decent backup somewhere.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

Sanchez could very well still start for the Jets in 2013, but it's hard to see him improving enough in Year 5 to be useful. In four seasons, Sanchez owns a 55.1 percent completion rate, and he's thrown more interceptions than touchdowns. The quarterback was overhyped early on because he went along for the ride when the Jets' defense carried the team to two AFC title games, and now his supporting cast on offense is likely to be even weaker.


The dubious addition of Tim Tebow to the Jets roster means even more scrutiny whenever Sanchez makes a mistake, but he’s still a likely 16-game starter for the Jets – especially after they signed him to an extension with $20.5 million guaranteed. Although he needs to cut his turnovers after committing 26 in 2011 (18 interceptions), Sanchez deserves credit for making more plays last year, throwing for 26 touchdowns and running for six more. The addition of second-round wideout Stephen Hill should be helpful in Sanchez’s quest to make plays without being reckless, as the 6-4 Georgia Tech product is even faster than Santonio Holmes and possesses a much bigger catch radius. That last year’s offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer – who seemed to hamstring Sanchez with overly conservative play calling – has been replaced by Tony Sparano can only help, too. Just keep in mind that if Tebow is installed for many of the team’s goal-line packages, it will be hard for Sanchez to put up adequate scoring numbers.


While he shows occasional flashes of brilliance, particularly in the playoffs, Sanchez’s fantasy value remains limited by his mediocre production (6.5 YPA) and the Jets’ run-heavy offense. His supporting cast from last year didn't remain intact, either, as the Jets decided to bring back Santonio Holmes, but replaced Braylon Edwards with Plaxico Burress. On the positive side, Sanchez has a good arm, moves well in the pocket and can scramble when necessary – he’s managed 100-plus rushing yards and three scores on the ground in each of his first two seasons in the league. He should also get better in Year 3, and because the Jets are committed to him, job security is not an issue.


Sanchez has a big-time NFL arm that the Jets do utilize — sixth in air yards per attempt and third in air yards per completion. However, he had a regular-season QB rating of 63 and the Jets ultimately had success when they emphasized the run. The supporting cast at the skill positions is now first-rate with Santonio Holmes to support Braylon Edwards. Defenses must load up to stop the running game and thus will be forced to man up on the Jets receivers frequently, which means lots of big-play opportunities. However, the most likely outcome is that Sanchez is a true backup with significant upside only in keeper leagues.


The Jets were the big story on Draft Day with the major move up to draft Sanchez, USC’s golden boy and now the first face of the franchise since Joe Namath left town in 1977. Kellen Clemens sat all year behind Brett Favre in 2008 and struggled not too surprisingly in his one extended look as a starter during 2007. Clemens didn’t show anything during pre-draft minicamps, leading to the drafting of Sanchez, so the window is rapidly closing for him. Look at the game tape of Sanchez in the Rose Bowl, and you see complete NFL QB. He is, to quote Steve Young, “buttoned up.” He commands the pro-style offense with ease, making flawless decisions and showing quick feet, pocket awareness and an above-average NFL arm (pre-draft reviews to the contrary). Of the last 15 QBs taken in the top five the past 10 years, seven have proven to be championship-caliber, and seven have proven to be bad picks. JaMarcus Russell gets a pass, though he showed serious signs of growth last year. Sanchez’s odds are better than a figurative coin flip, perhaps climb all the way up to 60/40. That’s worth a late flyer in keeper leagues for sure. But it’s not worth a draft pick in standard one-QB, 12-team leagues. Also, the Jets are likely to play a ground-oriented, defensive-minded game where there are few chances taken no matter who’s at QB. And the receiving corps is not strong enough to aid the passer, as Jerricho Cotchery is a solid No. 2 possession type, not capable of being the focal point of the passing attack.
