NFL Trade Rumors:
Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports that the Jets would incur a $17.1 million cap hit if they were to release starting QB Mark Sanchez.
Sanchez counts $12.8 million against the Jets salary cap next season, but what makes matters worse is the fact that trading him would still trigger an $8.9 million cap hit. Even renegotiating Sanchez’s contract next season would still require them to pay majority of the $8.25 million guarantees that he has remaining on his deal.
This further suggests that the Jets decision to re-sign Sanchez was a colossal failure. The organization continues to make major mistakes that end up undermining their ability to build their roster.
From all things considered, Sanchez will almost certainly be on the Jets roster next season. The only question is whether or not he’ll be the starter at the beginning of 2012.

The Pittsburgh Steelers were dominated by the San Diego Chargers today, but the Bengals, who were tied with the Steelers for the last playoff spot coming into the game, couldn't capitalize, losing to the Cowboys after leading most of the game.
With the losses by the Steelers and the Bengals, the Jets are suddenly right back in the wildcard race, just a game back with three...
The New York Jets (6-7) beat the Jacksonville Jaguars (2-11) 17-10, yesterday afternoon at EverBank Field from Jacksonville, FL.
The Running game wins for the Jets as they kept rushing the football downfield and let Mark Sanchez play as a manageable QB.
It was obvious Rex Ryan and Tony Sparano had no faith in Mark Sanchez so they just kept running the football for most of the game...
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez isn't going anywhere in 2013.

The New York Jets and their quarterback controversy have turned into Washington's political football.
In August, President Barack Obama questioned the Jets' decision to acquire Tim Tebow when they had quarterback Mark Sanchez, who had led the team to the playoffs two years in a row. Then this week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took a swipe at Republicans in the midst...
This week the Jets travel to Tim Tebow's hometown to play the Jaguars, unfortunately for the legion of Tebow supporters who undoubtedly wanted to line up to watch him play quarterback, equally unfortunate for many Jet fans that Greg McElroy won't be getting the start either, as you know, since it's all that anyone has talked about the entire week, Mark Sanchez will remain...
Are the Jets 6-7 and still alive in the AFC Wildcard race? Yes, if you can believe it. Rex Ryan pulled out some late 2009 magic dust and sprinkled it on Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, after yet another must win over the Jags and an exhausting week playing “Who Is My Quarterback?” The fact that this current roster is in the postseason hunt with three games left is a testimony to someone...
The New York Jets will visit the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14. Scheduled for a 1 p.m. EST kickoff this game will be aired on CBS where available.
Mark Sanchez will start for the Jets, a week after he was benched for third-string quarterback Greg McElroy. McElroy led the Jets to a 7-6 win against Arizona but will again be the third string option this week should Tim Tebow’s ribs...
Per multiple sources including Jason LaCanfora on twitter Tim Tebow is active today for the Jets. Tebow has been the second man on the Jets depth chart all year; so, maybe it was a ‘can’t lose your spot due to injury’ piece; maybe Rex Ryan thinks he’s their best backup quarterback; or maybe it was a marketing ploy by Woody Johnson and/or NFL higherups; either way, McElroy...
In the midst of an easy final stretch of the schedule, the New York Jets are facing their usual late-season do-or-die situation. A win improves them to 6-7 and maintains their minuscule hope in attaining a Wildcard beth for at least one more week. A loss could mean a plethora of depth chart adjustments next week.The good thing is, the Jets are in Jacksonville to face an absolutely...
It has been far from pretty but the New York Jets have won two games in a row and three of their last four after today’s 17-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Somehow they remain relevant in the AFC Playoff picture for the final wild-card spot, thanks to losses from both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals today.
The Jets have fully embraced their 2009 style of...
