Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the discussions between the Jets and Bucs have included the possibility of the Buccaneers assuming the contract of quarterback Mark Sanchez.
Yes, Sanchez. He has a guaranteed base salary of $8.25 million for 2013. If he didn’t, Sanchez would have been cut by now. If the Jets could unload that obligation, they’d surely jump at the chance.
I’m sure the Jets are trying to unload Sanchez by trading him away, because they can’t afford to cut him. But I doubt the Buccaneers are dumb enough to pull the trigger on a deal that would include him.
It also doesn’t make sense for the Bucs to acquire Sanchez sincet here’s no way Josh Freeman would lose his job to him. It ultimately doesn’t make sense for the Bucs to bring Sanchezin and have him compete with Freeman.
