The New York Jets silence on the future of Mark Sanchez essentially tells a thousand words, with the former Gang Green starting quarterback on the verge of an exit from the franchise.
Head coach Rex Ryan and the Jets front office are still not going to say whether or not they are about to release Sanchez, but the lack of noise is almost deafening.
When your own general manager is ducking questions from the media regarding your future you know that your career at a specific time is up.
There has been some dramatic back tracking from the Jets regarding what they want to do with Sanchez.
Ryan previously stated that he would 'absolutely' want Sanchez back in the Gang Green building, but now it seems things have changed somewhat.
Speaking to the New York Post, when asked about the Jets QB situation he said he'd 'prefer not to.'
He continued, "Let’s just let it play out,” Ryan explained. “Then let’s see what happens. I always want guys back. I want everyone. Would I want him back? Absolutely. I want all my guys back. You guys know my answer, and you know how I feel about my players. That’s just the way it is."
Ryan added that Sanchez's main focus still remains to back healthy after shoulder surgery four months ago.
“Right now with Mark, his whole focus, and I know he’s doing a great job of this, is rehabbing, getting that shoulder back to where he’s throwing right now,” Ryan said.
