Ian Rapoport of NFL.com had an interesting tweet on Monday saying if released, the Houston Texans could have some interest in Mark Sanchez, who is currently with the New York Jets.
The tweet by Rapoport said:
He never elaborated as to why he felt that way, but it does make a person think as it is a possibility Sanchez could be released by the Jets sometime this offseason.
Sanchez didn’t play in a game this past season as he was injured in the final preseason game, suffering a season-ending injury, requiring shoulder surgery on a torn labrum.
Before the start of last season, Sanchez was in the hot-seat with the Jets as his play regressed each season in the NFL, as the Jets went to rookie QB Geno Smith as their starting QB last season.
In his last full season in the NFL (2012), Sanchez passed for 2,883 and 13 TDs but had 18 interceptions that season as well.
To me, signing Sanchez would be gaining another Matt Schaub situation, which is something the Texans need to stay far away from.
If the Texans do eventually decided to go after Sanchez if he is released by the Jets, I would be not only surprised, but against it. We all know what the Texans are getting if the were to sign Sanchez, and if I were in charge of the team, I would go a different route in a search for a QB.
