Sanchez meeting with Eagles, deal expected if shoulder checks out

Shortly after Mark Sanchez was released by the New York Jets, he was already being connected with the Philadelphia Eagles as a potential landing spot.

That possibility appears to be close to becoming reality.

According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, Sanchez is in Philadelphia for a meeting with the Eagles.

The Eagles are expected to take a closer look at Sanchez’s injured shoulder. The former Jets starter suffered the injury in a preseason game against the New York Giants last August and did not play last season.

According to multiple reports, the Eagles will sign Sanchez if his shoulder checks out to their satisfaction.

Sanchez helped guide the Jets to the AFC Championship game in both 2009 and 2010. However, he had a disastrous final season as Jets starter in 2012. Sanchez completed just 54 percent of his passes for 2,883 yards with 13 touchdowns, 18 interceptions and a particularly memorable fumble.

Sanchez will likely compete with fellow former USC quarterback Matt Barkley for the backup role in Philadelphia behind Nick Foles.

    Better hope Nick Foles can stay healthy because Sanchez is a bum

    If Sanchez is healthy, this could be the steal of the decade. Chips off. will help him enormously.

    If the reports are true, it’s mind-boggling.

    Reported: Eagles plan to cut DeSean Jackson.

    Huh???

    Reported: Eagles plan to sign the Sanchise.

    Seriously???

    Man, I’d huck a bag of D-batteries at Santa too if I had to deal with that kind of news on a year in and year out basis too.
