New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez is drawing interest from multiple NFL teams according to Brian Costello of the New York Post.
"Apparently Sanchez is in high demand with several teams in need of a quarterback. According to the report, a team has already had discussions about bringing Sanchez in once he becomes a free agent.
An unnamed NFL coach told Costello:
"We'd take Sanchez...he'd be the starter as soon as he walked in the door for us."
Sanchez sat out the entire 2013 season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder that he sustained in the preseason.
The Jets will likely cut Sanchez in the near future so they don't have to pay him for next season. Their second round draft-pick quarterback Geno Smith had a solid rookie campaign and looks to be the starter moving forward.
Although Sanchez has had a turnover prone career throwing more interceptions (69) than touchdowns (68) many teams are desperate at QB, including the Minnesota Vikings, Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Oakland Raiders.
Sanchez is still only 27 and has a lot of playoff experience. Costello says NFL teams blame the Jets not Sanchez:
"Many teams view the deterioration of the Jets’ offensive roster around Sanchez as the problem that held him back."

ESPN Raiders blogger Paul Gutierrez considers Oakland a possible landing spot for Mark Sanchez this offseason.
Sanchez is expected to be released before he's owed a $2 million roster bonus in March. The Raiders are looking for a pocket passer to run OC Greg Olson's offense, so Sanchez could be viewed as a veteran upgrade on Terrelle Pryor and Matt McGloin. Despite coming off labrum surgery and two straight turnover-riddled seasons, Sanchez has drawn interest as a starter from at least one team. An unnamed coach told the New York Post last month that his organization has already discussed adding Sanchez in anticipation of him being released.
Oakland could be interesting. Back in California and all. I actually think Sanchez might play well for another team, but the Jets better cut him.
If this isn't NFL forum worthy move it.
