"Everything is pointing in that direction. And if he did, certainly not at the cap number."

New York Jets general manager John Idzik said QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) is "making very good progress" in his shoulder rehab this offseason.
Fantasy Tip: The Jets are saying Sanchez could stick around and compete with Geno Smith this summer, but that's probably wishful thinking. It's a long shot that Sanchez lands a guaranteed starting gig anywhere in the league next season.
Thu, 13 Feb 2014 00:17:26 -0800
There is no chance that New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez will return to the team on his current $13.1 million cap number, but the team could ask him about taking a significant pay cut to remain on the roster. ESPN.com reporter Rich Cimini talked to both sides and he speculates a fresh start may be in the best interests of both sides, with Sanchez likely seeking a change of scenery.
Sanchez is owed a roster bonus of $2 million on Mar. 25, so the Jets will make their move before that date.
Sun, 09 Feb 2014 12:25:44 -0800
The New York Jets could find themselves more than $40 million under the salary cap, if they release QB Mark Sanchez, WR Santonio Holmes and CB Antonio Cromartie, as expected. Letting Cromartie go would free up $9.5 million of cap space, releasing Holmes would free up $8.25 million and getting rid of Sanchez would give the team $8.3 million if he is not designated as a "June 1" cut. Sanchez's $2 million roster bonus is not due until March 25.

One coach of a quarterback-needy team believes New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) wouldn't be out of a job long if the Jets cut him this offseason.

Sanchez has been rehabbing his right shoulder in Alabama after having surgery in October.

Wed, 02 Oct 2013 12:33:27 -0700
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said he is considering bringing back the color coded wristband in order to help QB Geno Smith reduce turnovers. The team used a similar approach with QB Mark Sanchez in 2009. The wrist band helps the quarterback determine how aggressive or conservative he should be with a play call. "Hey, whatever it takes," Ryan said, adding: "I've been thinking about it. There's a fine line between being aggressive and being smart with it as well."
Fantasy Tip: While the idea is to help Smith prevent turnovers, it is still tough to trust Smith for more than bye week fill in work at this point as he continues to go through rookie bumps and bruises.
Tue, 01 Oct 2013 06:04:19 -0700

Our doctors and trainers are pleased."

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) is "pleasantly surprised" by his "progress" and intends to rehab his shoulder with hopes of playing again this year. Sanchez feels he won the quarterback competition between himself and QB Geno Smith in the preseason before being injured. "I won the competition. There's no doubt," Sanchez said.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez could return later this year, but he's likely to need surgery on his shoulder at some point in the offseason. Sanchez's injury gives the Jets an excuse to let Smith run with the job and learn by trial and error. Sanchez shouldn't be anywhere close to your fantasy radar.
Thu, 12 Sep 2013 07:32:26 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) plans to rehab his shoulder injury and try to avoid season-ending surgery. It will be a "week-to-week" evaluation.

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) is likely to have surgery after renowned Dr. James Andrews confirmed the quarterback has a labral tear in the right shoulder, according to league sources.
Fantasy Tip: With Sanchez likely done for the year, the Geno Smith era is upon us. He won his first NFL start against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but Smith is still best treated as a low-end No. 2 QB or reserve fantasy option in most formats.
Wed, 11 Sep 2013 14:49:45 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith will receive the start in Week 2 against the New England Patriots Thursday, Sept. 12, after passing for over 256 yards and a touchdown and interception in the Week 1 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) will miss another game and will seek a second opinion on his separated right shoulder. Sanchez is unlikely to play when he returns, though.
Fantasy Tip: Smith looked shaky at times in his first career start and win, and he'll continue to have growing pains as long as he's on the field. He remains a QB3 in the deepest of leagues.
Mon, 09 Sep 2013 09:13:43 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) has been ruled out for the team's Week 2 game. Sanchez is still being listed as day-to-day.
Sun, 08 Sep 2013 13:49:05 -0700
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) is day to day, despite reports that Sanchez may have a torn labrum.
Sun, 08 Sep 2013 09:04:28 -0700
Doctors think that New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) is dealing with a partially torn labrum in his shoulder. He'll go for a second opinion with Dr. James Andrews this week.
Fantasy Tip: Bad news for Sanchez. He might not see the field for most of, if not all, of the season if this is true. Geno Smith's value as a QB3 with plenty of upside is rising. He'll have plenty of growing pains, though, although he can present a threat with his legs. It's not wise to rely on Smith at any point this year.
Sun, 08 Sep 2013 08:44:49 -0700
The New York Jets have declared OG Ben Ijalana, LB Danny Lansanah, QB Mark Sanchez, OT Oday Aboushi, LB Quinton Coples, DL Scott Solomon, OG William Campbell inactive for Week 1.

New York Jets DL Quinton Coples (ankle) and QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 5.
Thu, 05 Sep 2013 09:31:41 -0700
New York Jets owner Woody Johnson said the team has no plans to cut QB Mark Sanchez and eat the remainder of his contract. "Mark will be on the team; I don't think there's any question about that," said Johnson, who is paying Sanchez a guaranteed $8.25 million to be a backup. General manager John Idzik also ended speculation that the team would place Sanchez on the Injured Reserve. He'll have a chance to regain the starting job, but the team is moving away from him right now.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez's chances of regaining the starting job probably won't be up to him, but rather how Geno Smith performs in the first few weeks of the season. Even if he does regain the job, Sanchez should not be owned in leagues.
Wed, 04 Sep 2013 16:05:44 -0700
The New York Jets have named QB Geno Smith their Week 1 starting quarterback, but they're not committing to him beyond the season opener. "We're having a competition between quarterbacks, and that competition isn't finished," owner Woody Johnson said. Smith is starting over the injured Mark Sanchez (shoulder), and he's expected to miss a few weeks. The team isn't considering placing Sanchez on the Injured Reserve or releasing him at this time. "We're very comfortable with Geno," head coach Rex Ryan said. "As an organization, we're confident Geno will help us get the job done."
Fantasy Tip: This situation is a mess, as it has been for a while. The team would prefer to keep Sanchez on the bench, even though running with Smith, a rookie, is a big risk. Consider it an even bigger risk to rely on Smith for fantasy purposes, for now.
Wed, 04 Sep 2013 14:37:43 -0700
New York Jets DE Quinton Coples (ankle), DT Leger Douzable (illness), QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) and TE Kellen Winslow (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 4.
Tue, 03 Sep 2013 11:56:47 -0700
The New York Jets aren't ruling out releasing QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder), even though they'd have to eat $8.25 million if they made that move. Sanchez hasn't thrown a football in nine days due to a shoulder injury. He won't play in Week 1, and his status is "very uncertain." If newly-signed QB Brady Quinn learns the offense quickly behind QB Geno Smith, Sanchez could become expendable. The team is ready to move on without Sanchez, but he counts $12.9 million against the salary cap this year, and he'll have a $4.8 million charge next season. The team isn't ruling out putting Sanchez on the short-term Injured Reserve, either. Head coach Rex Ryan didn't indicate that the Jets had any plans to release Sanchez, though.
