Mark Sanchez Traded: Broncos Newest Starter?

Mark Sanchez Traded to The Broncos

Backup Mark Sanchez to Become a Starter?

The Denver Broncos acquired QB Mark Sanchez from the Eagles on Friday in exchange for a conditional late-round draft pick.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman has now found trade partners for Mark Sanchez, DeMarco Murray, Kiko Alonso, and Byron Maxwell. He has rebuilt the Eagles lightning fast after Chip Kelly doomed the team with heavy unproductive players last season. It’s safe to say that Roseman has also re-earned the respect from the Eagles fanbase after some questionable deals in the past along with teams 2014 NFL Draft where he reached in the first round on drafting bust LB Marcus Smith III.

As for Mark Sanchez, leaving the Eagles nest might actually be a blessing in disguise for the eight year veteran. Sanchez luckily entered a quarterback market that had a ton of demand.

“Butt Fumble” will always be hanging over Sanchez’s head, yet his time in Philly was better than the average fan will give him credit for. Sanchez played in 13 games over the last two seasons and had a respectful 64% completion percentage.

The perfect scenario for Sanchez would be to land a starting job while mentoring a young quarterback, and that may be what just happened. Although the Broncos could plan to make other deals.

In the right system, the soon to be 30 year old QB could become relevant again.
