Could Mark Sanchez join the Philadelphia Eagles?

Published Add your comment

Mark Sanchez is now looking for a new team after being released by the New York Jets last friday. It appears that he could have found one, with the Philadelphia Eagles ready to bring in the former USC man.

The Eagles lost Michael Vick to the Jets over this weekend and so it seems that Vick and Sanchez could be trading places.

ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted today: "@mortreport is reporting that, pending a physical, former Jets QB Mark Sanchez is expected to sign with the Eagles."

Sanchez was released by the Jets on friday following a 2013 season lost to a pre-season injury. However he took the team to the AFC Championship game in 2009 and 2010 before suffering in 2011 and 2012.

He would most likely be a back-up to Nick Foles in Philadelphia and be given the chance to rebuild his confidence in a new system.

However,'s Ian Rapoport does not think that the Eagles are alone in pursuing the former Rose Bowl offensive MVP. 

"The #Eagles won't be alone in pursuit of Mark Sanchez, as others including the #Giants should be in the mix. Will be healthy for OTAs."

The St.Louis Rams are also reportedly interested in Sanchez.
