In our look at the Philadelphia Eagles signing of Chase Daniel we commented that it meant Mark Sanchez was probably going to be moving. Well today it was announced that he is indeed on the move, as the Eagles agreed to trade him to the defending Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos. Denver were left in dire straits after Peyton Manning retired and Brock Osweiler signed a large free agent deal with the Houston Texans. They were reportedly trying to trade for the San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick yesterday, but unable to agree on a price they obviously turned their attention elsewhere, finding an extremely willing trade partner in the Eagles. Sanchez is heading out west for the low, low price of a conditional 2017 draft pick which is basically nothing. Of course, this move is by no means the end of the process for the Broncos. Sanchez is one option but it won’t preclude them from drafting someone or even continuing to push for a trade with San Francisco for Kaepernick, a trade that could include moving Sanchez on to the 49ers. They need to rebuild their quarterback depth chart and Sanchez is by no means good enough to be the de facto starter. Sanchez, drafted in the first round in 2009 by the New York Jets, has never been a very productive passer. His career completion percentage is a poor 56.7% and he’s thrown 86 touchdowns compared to 84 interceptions. However he’s no stranger to managing an offense to give a great defense a chance. In his first 2 seasons he was the quintessential game manager for the Jets as they made the AFC Championship game in back to back season. That level of quarterbacking would arguably be an improvement over what they had through most of 2015.
