The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to sign former New York Jets starting quarterback Mark Sanchez as the No. 2 QB in between franchise signal-caller Nick Foles and fellow USC product Matt Barkley, who is heading into his second year in the league. Sanchez is also receiving interest from other teams, even if the full expectation is for him to latch on with the Eagles organization. The other teams rumored to have interest in him- the St. Louis Rams and New York Giants- barely have interest, and one team that was previously reported to be interested now reportedly has no interest whatsoever.
According to TitanInsider.com’s Terry McCormick, he has it on “good authority” that the Titans have “zero” interest in signing Mark Sanchez as the backup to Jake Locker, who had a solid season in 2013 when he was healthy. The Titans replaced Ryan Fitzpatrick as their No. 2 QB with Charlie Whitehurst this offseason in what was an interesting move to say the least, but it looks like they are more likely to draft a mid-round QB than sign a guy like Sanchez.
Based on the strength of McCormick’s report, the Titans are clearly not a possible landing spot for Sanchez, and it’s looking more and more like the Eagles will indeed end up with him as a backup. I mean, it’s harder to see more logical fits materializing in the near future anyway.
