The idea that the Jets can trade Sanchez is ridiculous.  First off, teams know Sanchez will be cut because the Jets get over $8 million of cap relief.  So, why offer the Jets anything?  Second, Sanchez is still injured and can't showcase his ability.  Why would a team offer the Jets a pick when Sanchez's health and effectiveness because of health are in question?  Third, Sanchez's game film doesn't lie.  In his 3rd and 4th years, he had issues that rookie QBs have.  So, why invest in a veteran coming off of an injury and prolonged ineffectiveness on the field?


Now, after he's cut, gets himself in football shape and can showcase his ability, he will likely get some interest, but that "interest" has been way overblown.  Sanchez will be just one of many UFAs and cap casualties that will be on the market.  For instance, why should Sanchez garner more interest than Josh Freeman?  Freeman at his best has been better than Sanchez and Freeman has more physical ability.


Lastly, the linked article actually put Cleveland as a possible trade partner.  Obviously the author didn't even bother to look at what Pettine thought of Sanchez in "Collision Low Crossers".  Let's just say that Belichick trading for Welker makes more sense.  As a Jets fan, I'd love the Jets getting a pick for Sanchez, but in this world you rarely get something for nothing.

In defending Geno, a lot of folks point to the games where Kerley was playing as indications that Geno played well enough when he had better receiving options. People look at the times he flashed potential as indicators of where he might be if he develops. In that same vein, teams might look at Sanchez' playoff performances and the first 13 games of 2011 and say that that kind of performance would be better than what they have gotten from their current QB's. 

I agree with you about no one trading for Sanchez but I definitely would not be surprised if someone brings him in to compete for the starting job.

I honestly think he will be successful somewhere else. I just hope we get something him.  I wish him well and believe he will succeed with some weapons around him and protection, and more importantly, out of the NY frying pan.

@a57se@SackDance99The big difference between Geno and Sanchez is that Sanchez began to decline in his 3rd season as a pro and free falled in his 4th season.  Sanchez also had players, like Kerley, Keller and Holmes, available to him for long stretches during those periods.  So, there's no equivalence in their situations.

Sanchez has a lot of tape that teams can review and I'm sure there's a team out there that may think it can "fix" Sanchez.  I don't want to get into it, but IMO there's a lot to fix and teach, and he has to be 100% healthy because his arm is just average.  I don't doubt that some team, after he's cut, will sign him for training camp, but I think he'll be competing for a back up job, not a starting job.

Perhaps there is a team out there that desperately wants to add "the buttfumble" to their playbook.!!!Such a team would most certainly trade for Sanchez.


As a bonus, that lucky team's fans will get see Sanchez wearing their home team's jersey in his next GQ spread along with some tighty tight white jeans and some lucky woman's headband. 


LET THE BIDDING BEGIN.....the fans are waiting in some lucky NFL city!

The only thing better than Sanchez being traded would be Sanchez being traded within the AFC East to a division rival! This way the Jets defense could play against him twice a year! I am sure some of the bloggers here (aka Joeyboy) would think he could win the starting job in Buffalo or Miami. Please let it happen. If it did our defense could easily add another 6-10 turnovers to its stats each year

Take that to the bank
