This Quarterback Would Rather Be A Backup Than Go To The Rams

Mark Sanchez enjoyed a chance to be the quarterback of the future of the New York Jets but never really lived up to expectations.

After drafting Geno Smith, it served as an omen to the end of Sanchez’s tenure with the Jets. Now with the Philadelphia Eagles, Sanchez is looking to refurbish his career and become a respected quarterback in the NFL once again.

With Sam Bradford out for the season with a torn ACL in his left knee, Sanchez may have a chance to start again in the league. But according to sources, he wants no parts of moving to St. Louis.

According to USA Sports,

If Sanchez has anything to say about it, there’s “no chance” he’d abandon his fresh start as a backup under coach Chip Kelly with the Philadelphia Eagles for a shot to rejoin Schottenheimer and play in St. Louis, a person with knowledge of Sanchez’s thinking told USA TODAY Sports on Sunday.

It makes sense, Sanchez needs a new start and maybe one year away from the spotlight could give him the confidence to relax and develop while trying to reach his potential.

With Chip Kelly as the head coach I just don’t think he wants to leave a potentially exciting offense.
