The New York Jets' offseason has been something of a circus so far.The team has brought in a new GM, traded their best player in Darrelle Revis, and had five quarterbacks on their roster and then drafted Geno Smith in the 2nd round on Friday. This team is in complete disarray when it comes to a solid plan or direction.What we know is this: Mark Sanchez will not be a part of this team's future. The first shoe to drop was releasing Tim Tebow after the team floated reports that they may keep him and release Sanchez.A team this void of leadership is basically waiting for Sanchez to ask for his release. Team general manager John Idzik says there will be an "open competition" at quarterback. This is the same guy who a year ago with the Seattle Seahawks, signed Matt Flynn to a deal to be a starter, while having Tarvaris Jackson and then the team drafted Russell Wilson and Wilson got most of the snaps in the preseason.Sanchez will not get the opportunity to stay in New York. The Jets' ring leader is moving towards a new future and its with Geno Smith. Mark Sanchez will see his reps cut and he will have very little opportunity to get a chance with the starters.If Geno Smith does not win the job, it will be because David Garrard, who was brought in as well, will be given the keys to start and the opportunity to mentor Smith. If the Jets really wanted to show class and leadership they would release Sanchez and give a chance to find another team. Keeping him around and letting him think he has a future with the team is dishonorable and not fair to him.This team has more drama than a soap opera, and the season hasn't even started. It is sad that the drama off the field is the only thing people talk about since the on the field play is just horrendous.
