The Jets have an important decision to make at the QB spot this offseason, but from the words of new GM John Idzik, it sounds like Mark Sanchez is still going to be the man under center.
Idzik, appearing on WFAN radio, was asked if he feels “comfortable” with Sanchez.
He replied, “I feel comfortable with Mark being a Jet. I told him we’re going to add competition and everyone should be up for it. It’s going to make Mark, and everybody else, better.”
Idzik said he has spoken to Sanchez, and he said the embattled quarterback is “champing at the bit. He wants to get going with his new coordinator. He’s all about competing. I got a really good feeling from Mark.”
Sanchez has a $12.8 million cap charge and a contract that is almost immovable, so it’s not exactly breaking news that Idzik would confirm his place on the roster.
