An Idea for Sanchez


So, clearly the Jets have officially begun the end of Mark Sanchez. I would imagine, if I'm Sanchez, I'd want to try and negotiate doing whatever could be best for my future, regardless of how much I make this year. So, it got me thinking about this possible scenario. Let me know what everyone thinks:

Sanchez has the threat of being a late cut looming over his head and the possibility of him having to compete for a third string spot before the season begins, or even worse, waiting for an injury. What if he agreed to a significant contract restructure, that extended the years but slashed the money, on the condition that he was then traded to another team as their backup? It could be an attractive offer to another team. It's likely that he'd be one of the best backups in the league and there's a number of teams in a fortunate enough position that they can worry about things like that. Contenders like the Ravens, Texans or Chargers would be a good fit and could be attractive as he could have his sights on a ring. Then there's teams with unsure futures looking for cheap, veteran competition like the Raiders or Jaguars. I think a restructure and trade (maybe for a fifth or sixth rounder next year) would be ideal for all parties involved.
