Recent reports also ruled out the Giants as an option for Sanchez and the Rams interest was characterized as being “tepid at best.”
Tennessee didn’t make a lot of sense given that they have already signed Charlie Whitehurst to be their backup next season.
The Eagles are still expected to be the favorites to sign Sanchez, but the Browns and Bears have also come up as potential options for him.
Rams HC Jeff Fisher recently mentioned that they have interest in Sanchez, but Thomas refers to their level interest as “tepid at best.”
“I’d say there is interest,” Fisher told USA Today on Sunday. “I can’t say how much. I do not have a backup with experience right now.”
St. Louis seems like a decent fit when you consider their current backup quarterback situation and the fact that Sanchez has worked with current Rams’ offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan while he was with the Jets.
“Joe Namath before we sign Sanchez,” Glauber’s source said.
Manish Mehta reports that that the Eagles have the “edge” to sign QB Mark Sanchez, but it’s “not a lock” at this point in time.
- According to Mehta, the Browns, Rams and Titans have also expressed “real interest” in Sanchez.
- Ian Rapoport adds that the Giants should be in the mix for Sanchez as well.
According to Mortensen, the fact that the Jets listed his release as a “failed physical” termination on Monday’s NFL transactions release won’t affect his chances of signing with a new team.
- Mortensen adds that Sanchez is on a “good recovery” from surgery and is currently “80 percent” recovered.
- Ian Rapoport reports that the Eagles doctors will take a “hard look” at Sanchez and his medical situation.
- Pro Football Talk reports that the Eagles are “definitely interested” in Sanchez, but they want to learn more regarding his shoulder before signing him.
- Manish Mehta confirms Mortensen’s report that Sanchez is expected to sign with the Eagles.
Sanchez, 27, is coming off of a season-ending injury and cleared waivers on Monday. The Rams were known to have interest in Sanchez and the Bears, Browns, Bills and Seahawks were also mentioned as potential landing spots.
