Mark Sanchez may be something of a pariah in New York after the 'butt-fumble' incident of 2012.

However, The New York Post reports that at least one NFL team would be interested in the quarterback should he hit free agency.

Sanchez missed the entirety of last season with a muscle tear in his throwing shoulder and had turnover problems in the previous two seasons as the New York Jets missed the playoffs in 2011 and 2012.

However, the former USC quarterback has led the Jets to two AFC Championship games and at least one NFL team would be interested in Sanchez's services.

A coach of a mystery team told Post reporter Brian Costello at the Senior Bowl that:

“We’d take Sanchez, he’d be the starter as soon as he walked in the door for us.”

Sanchez was replaced as the Jets starter by rookie Geno Smith after his injury and it is not immediately clear whether he would be kept in New York.

The signal-caller has three years left on his current deal and his cap hit in 2014 stands at $13 Million. The Jets would stand to save $8 Million by cutting Sanchez this offseason.
