Cimini reports Mark Sanchez has met with Chad Pennington to get a leg up learning Tony Sparano's playbook. Pennington played for Sparano in Miami from 2008 to 2010.

Sanchez met Pennington in South Florida recently for a crash course in Tony Sparano's offense, ESPNNewYork.com confirmed. Pennington brought an old Miami Dolphins playbook and began teaching the system and terminology to Sanchez. The two quarterbacks met more than once for classroom-type sessions.

Sanchez reached out to Pennington because, under the new collective bargaining agreement, players aren't allowed to meet with their coaches and discuss football until April 16 -- the start of the offseason program.

Most people hold Chad's intellect for the game in very high regard so he should be a good tutor for Sanchez learning this offense. He also might be able to help Mark with advice on some technical points in his game. It is very good to see the quarterback take this initiative. This is a good way to start debunking those rumors swirling about his work ethic.
