Mark Sanchez soon could be an Eagle.
The former Jets quarterback is in Philadelphia on Wednesday night and a deal likely will be hammered out as long as Sanchez's shoulder and knee check out, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of Sanchez's plans. The New York Post first reported the possibility.
It's a great fall from grace for the No. 5 overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. Sanchez started in all but two games for Gang Green in his first four seasons, but after a terrible 2012 when he threw five more picks than touchdowns, the Jets drafted Geno Smith in the second round. Sanchez and Smith competed for the starting job in training camp last season, but Sanchez tore his labrum and made the decision for the team.
Now, Sanchez has a chance to learn from QB guru Chip Kelly with an eye on reclaiming a starting job somewhere else down the line.
