Rex Ryan and Jets continue to string along Mark Sanchez

New York Jets back-up quarterback Mark Sanchez must be getting sick and tired of the mixed signals coming from the Jets as to whether they want him to stay or not.

Sanchez came into the league as a solid QB who then went on to lead the Jets to back to back AFC Championship Games.

In these first two seasons he was commended for his ability to game manage his team without committing too many mistakes.

However, the next couple of seasons were a different as the Jets tried to open the playbook and let Sanchez come into his own, but he turned the ball over more than 20 times in both years. 

Ryan and the Jets have remained coy over Sanchez's future in New York, but it's understood that they will cut him eventually, and several teams have already made their interest known.

“We’ll just let that play out and see what happens,” Ryan said, via Brendan Kuty of “But it’s nothing I’m going to make a comment on.”

Sanchez provides a $13.1 million hit to the Jets cap, and the sooner they can get rid of him the better.

The former number one Jets signal caller is most known for the infamous play that happened during Gang Green's match-up against New England Patriots on Thanksgiving in 2012. 

In front of a 20 million TV audience, Sanchez collided with his team-mate Brandon Moore and fumbled the ball in a play that will forever be known as the 'Butt Fumble'. 

The Pats went and scored a touchdown off the play, and Sanchez's reputation has never recovered in the Big Apple.
