Mark Sanchez, who was released Friday by the Jets, could be brought in to back up Rams quarterback Sam Bradford.

St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher said at the owners meetings in Orlando that the Rams are interested in bringing Sanchez into the fold.

"I'd say that there is interest. I can't say how much. But there certainly would be interest,'' Fisher told Jim Corbett of USA Today. "I don't have a backup with experience on the roster right now.''

Bradford underwent ACL surgery in October, and the Rams' current backup is second-year man Austin Davis.

Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer worked in the same position with the Jets from 2009 to 2011, when Sanchez was the starter.

"Brian had a good relationship with Mark,'' Fisher said. "He's just learning. He's been to the AFC Championship game a couple of times, so he's been there.''

Sanchez, 27, was 33-29 in four seasons as the Jets' starter, with four road playoff wins. He has 68 career touchdown passes and 69 interceptions.

Bradford was off to a hot start last season with 14 touchdowns and four interceptions before injuring his left knee in a Oct. 20 loss to the Panthers. SI WIRE: Bucs wide receiver Mike Williams stabbed in leg, brother suspected
