"I'd say that there is interest. I can't say how much. But there certainly would be interest," Fisher told USA Today's Jim Corbett on Sunday at the NFL Annual Meeting. "I don't have a backup with experience on the roster right now."
Kellen Clemens signed a two-year, $3 million deal with the San Diego Chargers last week, leaving only Austin Davis behind Sam Bradford on the Rams' depth chart. (No, not knowing who Austin Davis is does not make you a bad fan -- the 2012 undrafted free agent never has thrown a pass in the NFL.)
With Bradford recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL, having a legitimate backup doubly is important. Enter Sanchez, who made 62 regular-season starts and six more in the playoffs.
"Brian had a good relationship with Mark," Fisher said. "He's just learning. He's been to the AFC Championship Game a couple of times, so he's been there."
The Jets did Sanchez no favors by waiting 11 days into the free-agent period before cutting the quarterback loose. St. Louis represents a sensible fit for Sanchez, though he'd have to come to terms with locking himself into a defined backup role. In truth, he's in a position where he might not have a better option.
