Sanchez:

“It gives the team just a reminder that I’m the leader of this team, and I’m excited to get back, and I’m going to be working my tail off these next few months to become the best possible starting quarterback that this franchise can have.”


This is a head-scratcher, 'specially now that they have Holmes tied up for essentially two more years (his 2013 money is already guaranteed). Some teammates don't like him, the team was publicly going for Peyton--how can he say "I'm the leader" with any confidence?

Jets signed QB Mark Sanchez to three-year, $40.5 million extension through 2016.
It's an apology extension. The Jets put out feelers for Peyton Manning, and they were quickly rebuffed. This is Mike Tannenbaum and Woody Johnson's way of saying sorry. On the bright side, the extension should lower Sanchez's salary cap number in 2012, giving the Jets room to operate in free agency. The downside is much worse, of course, especially if Sanchez continues his regression. At the very best, he's plateaued since entering the league. The extension will make the Jets a much less enticing landing spot for free agent quarterbacks that want a legitimate chance to start. Sanchez won't be "competing" for his job anymore.

PFT notes it isn't as all-in on Sanchez as it looks.

Yes, Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez will earn $20.5 million in guaranteed money in 2012 and 2013 as part of his new contract. The fact, however, that Sanchez already was due to earn $17.75 million over the next two seasons has prompted one league source to characterize the move as a “lipstick and powder” deal.

For an extra $2.75 million, Sanchez gave the Jets three straight option years, allowing the team to keep him if he finally realizes his full potential — and to cut him without further investment after the 2013 season, the 2014 season, or the 2015 season.

The contract also could be called a glorified restructuring. Per a source with knowledge of the details, Sanchez’s $11.75 million base salary for 2012 has been converted to an $8 million signing bonus, a fully-guaranteed base salary of $3.25 million, and a $500,000 workout bonus.

The move creates $6.4 million in 2012 cap space.

I think most Jets fans are going to have to think that way. It's Sanchez or Flynn....may as well go with the mediocre known talent.

It's just a shame that mediocre QB talent is getting paid big bucks now.

Agreed.. and if you're Alex Smith how do you see this and not think "I'm worth at least that?"... Sanchez couldn't carry the team.. Smith did when it counted.

After the details of contract came out it does not look as bad as originally reported. The jets can cut him after 2013 with no cap hit. That gives him 2 more seasons to get it together.


Plus it lowers the jets cap number in 2012. Sanchez's new contract only negatively effects 2013.

After opening the season against the Bills, whose new defensive end Mario Williams could dominate Jets offensive tackle Wayne Hunter and feast on Sanchez, the Jets will face the Steelers, Dolphins, 49ers and Texans. As Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News points out, that means that in Weeks 2-5 the Jets face the No. 1, No. 6, No. 2 and No. 4 scoring defenses from 2011.


Tebow chants early in the Big Apple. Three of the Jets four prime-time games come late in the season--did the league plan for Sanchez to fail early so they can get Tebow in prime time later in the season?

Cornerback Darrelle Revis sees something special in Tebow. “He’s a born leader, he really is,” Revis said Wednesday, via Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com. “Very few athletes have the gift he has. He tries to lead by example all the time. He tries to be positive, which is awesome, and that [has resulted] in his success on the field. . . .

“Some people have it, some guys don’t. It’s the passion within, wanting to be a leader, wanting to win. You see it all the time, eating lunch, walking down the hallway. You see it.”

Revis didn’t say whether Sanchez is one of the people who have it, or one of those who don’t. But given that Revis has never said anything like that about Sanchez in three-plus years together and that Revis is saying it now after less than two months with Tebow in town is telling.

“He’s a playmaker, he makes plays, he wins games,” Revis said of Tebow. “He’s one of those guys. He’s very positive. He has passion for whatever he does. You can see it on him.”

With Revis talking that way, it’s going to be even harder to keep Tebow off the field. Or to use him only on special teams. Unless Sanchez plays like Namath in 1968, it seems like it will be only a matter of time before plenty of guys in the the locker room openly are questioning why Tebow isn’t leading the team on a full-time basis.


Eli was quoted awhile back: "I'm the third most talked-about QB in the city" (after just winning his second SB). This Jets situation could get ugly fast.
