“I’d say that there is interest. I can’t say how much. But there certainly would be interest,” Fisher tells USA TODAY Sports. “I don’t have a backup with experience on the roster right now.”
The Rams recently came up as a team to watch in regards to Sanchez given that former Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer is now running the Rams’ offense.
“Brian had a good relationship with Mark,” Fisher said. “He’s just learning. He’s been to the AFC Championship game a couple of times, so he’s been there.”
Sanchez, 27, is also coming off of a season-ending injury of his own, but it appears to be unlikely that any team will give him a shot at competing for a starting job, so an opportunity to work with his former coordinator could be an appealing option for him.
According to Cimini, the St. Louis Rams as the No. 1 landing spot to watch in regards to Sanchez. Cimini points out that former Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer is now running the Rams’ offense and Sam Bradford is coming off of a major knee injury.
The Chicago Bears are another team that has lost their backup in recent weeks as Josh McCown is now that starting quarterback for the Buccaneers. Jordan Palmer is currently Jay Cutler‘s backup, so Sanchez could at least give them a better contingency option. You would have to think Sanchez would be interested in working with Bears HC Marc Trestman given that he was a proven track record of developing quarterbacks.
Cimini also lists the Browns, Bills and Seahawks as three other options
