Jets’ Mark Sanchez Says He’d Redo Contract To Help Team
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez says he has already spoken to his agent about restructuring his contract to help the team sign free agents, including wide receivers Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards.
Sanchez says Tuesday “whatever we need to do to win, it’s on.” He is entering his third year and is due to make $14.75 million in base salary this season, but could make as much as $17.75 million with bonuses.
Sanchez, who has helped lead the Jets to the AFC championship game in his first two seasons, says he would love to have both Holmes and Edwards back after connecting with them on and off the field.
Sanchez and several teammates reported to the team’s facility Tuesday for the first time since the lockout ended Monday.
