"The Mark Sanchez I knew when he got here was the quarterback that led (the Jets) to two straight AFC Championship Games," wideout Jeremy Maclin said Wednesday, per the New York Post. "He was a quarterback who won at this level as a very high draft pick and did very well with what he was given in New York."
Said Maclin: "Mark can play, man. There's no question about it. He's also surrounded by a lot more talent than what he had in New York, so the sky's the limit."
As we mentioned on Wednesday's podcast, Sanchez couldn't have chosen a better landing spot. After beginning his career under a Jets coaching staff heavily focused on defense, the sixth-year veteran has spent all summer and autumn in daily workshops with one of the league's most creative offensive minds in Chip Kelly.
