We reported this weekend that it looks like Mark Sanchez’s days as a Jet are numbered. It looks like that might not be the case just yet.
According to Bob Glauber of Newsday, the Jets plan on keeping Sanchez on the roster heading into the preseason.

The Jets clearly want to get rid of him, but financially they can’t afford to cut him. Jet fans can thank mike Tannenbaum for last year’s extension.

Even though the New York Jets drafted Geno Smith in the second round of this year’s NFL draft, general manager John Idzik claims that Mark Sanchez will get to compete.
“What this means for Mark is competition,” said Idzik, per ProFootballTalk.com.
Idzik was then asked if there are plans to cut him, like ESPN reported.
“There are plans to let him compete,” he replied.
COMING TO AN END
The Jets' selection of Geno Smith could lead to the team releasing quarterback Mark Sanchez despite the salary cap hit.
After enduring one of the most embarrassing descents in NFL Draft history, prolific West Virginia University quarterback Geno Smith was chosen with the 39th overall pick by the New York Jets on Friday. The 22-year-old Smith, who ran the 40-yard dash in 4.59 seconds at the NFL Combine in February, was projected as a top-10 pick by many insiders. To pacify the native Floridian, elite...
According to a report from the NY Post, Tim Tebow has be cut by the New York Jets as of Monday morning. Though he showed up 15LBs lighter to volunatary workouts which began last week, and an improved throwing motion, the disaster that was Tim Tebow in New York is no longer. It comes as no surprise with the selection of Geno Smith in the 2nd round of this past weekend’s NFL Draft...

Geno Smith's surprising slide through the NFL draft stopped in the second round with the New York Jets.
The former West Virginia star, considered by many to be the top quarterback available in this year's draft, was taken with the seventh pick in the second round, 39th overall, Friday night. He could be the future replacement for Mark Sanchez.
Smith went from looking embarrassed...
This years NFL draft has come and gone in the blink of an eye. The Jets addressed some serious needs (an attempt to replace the loss of Revis in drafting CB Dee Milliner, 9th overall) and ignored others (no TE or WR for a team that desperately needs help offensively.) Since the beginning of time, it seems, there's no bigger question left unanswered than who will start at quarterback...
Former New York Jets wide receiver Wayne Chrebet had the unenviable task of announcing the team's 39th pick in front of the raucous Jets faithful inside Radio City Music Hall Friday night. And, even before the fan favorite finished the name "Geno Smith," loud strains of mostly boos from the stunned crowd swept throughout the massive concert hall.
Smith was labeled...
The dust has finally settled on the New York Jets draft weekend. Since Thursday night there have been eight additions to the team’s roster, including six draft picks. We will individually spend time in the film room to break down each draft selection in-depth (and Chris Ivory) in the coming weeks. However, let’s round everything up to cap off the weekend.

Friday was either a very good day or a very, very bad day to be named Sanchez in the sports world, as Sanchez stars from New York to Detroit to St. Louis had some of the best and worst evenings in the history of professional athletics.
