According to NFL.com, Mark Sanchez ranks #1 out of 32 backup quarterbacks.
It’s possible that Sanchez starts the season, but the Eagles are paying Bradford $12.985 million this year to Sanchez’s $2.5 million. If Bradford isn’t fully healthy by Week 1, Sanchez gives Chip Kelly a player familiar with the system and one who led the Jets to consecutive AFC title games. His inspired play tailed off down the stretch in 2014, but I’m also basing this off fit: Philly’s run-heavy, “QB-proof” attack is an outstanding landing spot for our top-ranked backup.
Sam Bradford’s health is always going to be a concern this up-coming season. As you already know, Bradford has not played football since 2013. Keep in mind that Sanchez could be our starting quarterback. I have my doubts that Tim Tebow will be doing anything this season. Tebow would be useful in redzone wildcat plays.
