Former Jets GM Regrets Extending Mark Sanchez

The New York Jets and general manager Mike Tannenbaum thought they had their quarterback of the future last March, so the team offered Mark Sanchez an extension, making his contract worth more than $58 million over five years.
Less than a year later, Tannenbaum is out of a job and the Jets are paying a gaudy salary to a quarterback who had one of the worst seasons in the NFL last year.
“I don’t think I would have signed a quarterback to an extension knowing that he’d have 26 turnovers,” Tannenbaum said Thursday on NFL AM. “That might be one of the reasons I’m right sitting here with you guys.”
Sanchez finished the year with 2,883 yards, 13 touchdowns, and 26 interceptions — good for a QB rating of 66.9, just ahead of Matt Cassel (66.7) for second-worst in the league.
