Sanchez is an Eagle, and Wants to Stay an Eagle
Once it was reported that Ram's quaterback Sam Bradford would be out for the season after tearing his ACL in a preseason game against the Browns this weekend, the trade speculation surrounding Eagles backup quaterback Mark Sanchez started to resurface.
Mark Sanchez has been stellar so far this pre-season. In three games, Sanchez is 25-of-31 passing (80.6%) for 281 yards with two touchdowns, an interception and a 112.5 passer rating. A change of scenery has seemingly helped to reboot Sanchez's career, as well as Chip Kelly's quarterback friendly system. Given how well Mark has played as the Eagles second string quarterback (as opposed to his last few seasons in New York), many have discussed the possibility of trying to trade Mark Sanchez, considering how high his stock is at the moment. After reports surfaced sunday that the Rams lost Sam Bradford for the season, the continued talk of trading Mark Sanchez seemed even more realistic.
Sanchez however, would prefer to stay an Eagle. “I’m an Eagle. I love being an Eagle. That’s really all I’m gonna say about it", Sanchez told birds 24/7 reporter Tim McManus. Sanchez also went on to say “nobody who would make those decisions has said anything” to him, and he’s sure that if a trade were a possibility, he would know about it.
In a sport where injury is just around the corner, it would behoove the Eagles to keep Mark Sanchez on this roster in the event that Nick Foles went down....Just like Sam Bradford
