The Mark Sanchez experiment in New York appears to be coming to an end.
While reports are surfacing that back up quarterback Tim Tebow could be requesting his release or a trade at the end of the season, it is being reported that the Jets will be looking to trade former starter Mark Sanchez this offseason.
Sanchez is owed $8.25 million in guaranteed money next year and whichever team would take on Sanchez would likely have to take on $3 million of his salary.
It is unlikely that Sanchez will be traded and it appears that New York is more likely to release the former No. 5 overall pick, which would cost the team $17.1 million. New York has stuck by Sanchez in the past, but the positive relationship is now clearly on the rocks.
