Mark Sanchez says he's at the team's disposal to assist when free agency hits.
"Hopefully free agency will start next week and I’ll be on the horn if they need me to be calling guys, making sure guys want to come play for Rex [Ryan], but I don’t think that will be hard," Sanchez said via sportsradiointerviews.com. "I don’t think they will need me to convince anybody, but whether it is Randy Moss or Braylon [Edwards] or Santonio [Holmes] or some combination of the three of them. Anybody. I just want to know what is going on."
The real way for Sanchez to help might have less to do with convincing people to come with his words than with creating money to spend. The Jets might ask him to restructure his deal to clear cap space depending on the CBA's outcome. It would not figure to be a problem. Franchise quarterbacks are usually more than willing to work something out for cap space. They make a ton of money either way and tend to have more security than guys at other positions.
