Tweet Sanchez has agreed to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles, coincidentally the team that released Michael Vick, Sanchez’s replacement with the Jets. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly spoke about Sanchez Wednesday at the NFL owner’s meetings in Orlando, referring to Sanchez as a “very, very good athlete.” “He’s started 60-plus (62 regular season) games in this league.” Kelly stated. “He’s got great experience. There’s a lot of positive qualities to him.” Sanchez missed the entire 2013 season with a shoulder injury sustained during the preseason that eventually required surgery. Geno Smith then started every game for the Jets, prompting New York to release Sanchez and sign Vick to a one-year deal reportedly worth $5 million. While erratic as a passer, Sanchez has a career 33-29 record as a starter. He brings a veteran presence to the Eagles to compete with Matt Barkley for back up duties behind starter Nick Foles. -ALR
