Mark Sanchez Wasn't Consulted On Tim Tebow Trade

Mark Sanchez’s input was not considered by the New York Jets in regards to the Tim Tebow trade decision, according to ESPN.

"Mark's job is to play quarterback, it's not to be the general manager," said Jets head coach Rex Ryan. "That's what it is. Our decisions are based on the team."

Ryan defended the trade and insisted that it would affect the team in a positive manner giving Sanchez a competitive push. Ryan said the only way there would be a quarterback controversy would be if the Jets struggled.

Sanchez spoke about the trade in a conference call last evening saying that he didn’t find out about the trade until it was completed. He noted that the front office usually consulted with him in the past in regards to similar matters.

"That's a team decision, a trade that they made," Sanchez said. "They're excited about it and so am I. It didn't really change anything."

Sanchez struggled last season, throwing 18 interceptions with a 78.2 QB rating.
