Jets reportedly met with the representatives for Sanchez on Friday at the Scouting Combine to discuss the his future with the team.
Cimini mentions that nothing was settled in regards to his status with the team, but the Jets will continue to monitor his recovery from a labrum tear he suffered early last year. Sanchez would still need to take a “large pay cut” in order to be back with the Jets.
Sanchez has a $2 million roster bonus is due on March 25, so we should have a much better idea of this situation will play out as we get closer to that date.
The consensus belief has been that the Jets will part ways with Sanchez based on the fact that he will have a staggering $13.1 million salary-cap figure for 2014 season. The Jets stand to gain $8.3 million in cap space by releasing him, which could prove be too much to pass up.
Some have mentioned that Sanchez could actually have a decent market based on the limit depth at quarterback in this year’s free agent class.
Assuming he’s released, speculative options could include the Browns, Jaguars, Raiders, Texans and Vikings.
