Mark Sanchez lost his job as the New York Jets' starting quarterback this week. The next step might be a move to another team. The New York Daily News reported Wednesday that the Jets will attempt to trade Sanchez in the offseason. According to the newspaper, the team probably would have to pay much of Sanchez's guaranteed $8.25 million base salary in order to rid itself of the Southern California alumnus. Sanchez would count $17.1 million against the Jets' salary cap should they cut him after the season, according to numerous media reports. Jets coach Rex Ryan announced Tuesday that third-string quarterback Greg McElroy would take over as the team's starter for Sunday's home game against the San Diego Chargers. The team's second-string quarterback, Tim Tebow, arrived in a ballyhooed offseason trade, but he's barely seen action this season. He was passed over in favor of McElroy this week. According to the Daily News, the Jets could be looking outside of the three in-house options for the 2013 quarterback. Michael Vick, who could end up released by the Philadelphia Eagles, is on the Jets' radar, the newspaper reported. "(Ryan) loves him," an anonymous team official said, according to the Daily News.. Sanchez threw four interceptions and lost a fumble Monday in the Jets' 14-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans. On the season, he has 13 touchdowns and 17 interceptions, and he's completed 54.8 percent of his passes. Vick hasn't played since Nov. 11 due to a concussion. However, he might have lost his job despite the injury. He's thrown 11 touchdown passes and nine interceptions while compiling a 58.5 percent completion rate.
