The Jets already have quarterback Mark Sanchez on the roster, but the team has been rumored to be interested in Manning. This week, LaDainian Tomlinson said Sanchez would ask for his release if the team signed Manning and former Jets quarterback Joe Namath backed Sanchez, saying the team should stick with the young quarterback.
