PLAYERS: Rex RyanMark Sanchez
TEAMS: New York Jets
  Mark Sanchez told the NFL Network he felt he won the Jets’ QB competition.  According to NFL.com,  Head coach Rex Ryan doesn’t know where Mark Sanchez got that idea from. “I never said he won the competition. That’s his opinion.  It’s not about a company line. Apparently, if that’s what he said then that’s his opinion. Again there is that ongoing competition.” With reports coming out that Sanchez is being advised to skip surgery and just rehab, the door may not be closed on his Jets career.  It’s likely improbable, but not all the way out of the question.
