Philadelphia Eagles backup quarterback Mark Sanchez doesn’t want to be traded to the St. Louis Rams, despite the team's uncertainty at the QB position, reports Tom Pelissero of USA Today.
Rams quarterback Sam Bradford was lost for the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his surgically-repaired left knee this weekend. Veteran Shaun Hill was elevated to first-string.
Expectations for each new NFL coach
Sanchez is in his first season in Philadelphia after signing a one-year deal in the offseason. Sanchez spent his first five NFL seasons with the New York Jets.
According to the report, there is “no chance" Sanchez will rejoin his former Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer in St. Louis.
NFL.com reported the Rams have some interest in Sanchez and that the team would be open minded to see what other teams make calls.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher told reporters there have been no trade talks yet and the plan is to roll with the guys who know the system: Shaun Hill, the 34-year-old career backup who replaces Bradford atop the depth chart, and third-year pro Austin Davis. The Rams also have rookie sixth-round pick Garrett Gilbert on the roster.
