Cowboys Sign QB Mark Sanchez To One-Year Deal Worth Up To $5.375M

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Cowboys are signing QB Mark Sanchez to a contract now that he’s been released by the Broncos.

  • Troy Renck reports that Sanchez’s contract can max out at $5.375 million, which is likely tied to incentives for starts.
  • Brandon George previously mentioned that Sanchez’s contract is expected to carry a base value of $2.5 million.

The Cowboys have clearly been in the market for quarterback help since Tony Romo got hurt, and the reportedly spoke to the Broncos about a deal. But it looks like Dallas preferred to wait until he was cut.

Sanchez, 29, was in the final year of his two-year, $9 million contract that includes $5.5 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $4.5 million for the 2016 season when he was cut before today’s deadline.

In 2015, Sanchez appeared in four games for the Eagles and threw for 616 yards while completing 64.8 percent of his passes to go along with four touchdowns and four interceptions.
