Mark Sanchez Wants to Stay in New York

Jets_Mark_Sanchez_2013Other than popping up in cornrows the other day (having lost a bet), we haven’t heard much from injured Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez.

And when he talked to reporters Tuesday, he said stuff that we’re not sure anyone really believes.

“I don’t want to go anywhere else,” Sanchez said, via Darryl Slater of the Newark Star-Ledger. “I plan on being here. That’s all I’m thinking about, is coming back next year, leading this team and playing well. We’ll see what happens.”

Of course, his contract makes that highly unlikely, and everyone realizes that. But as he could be entering the job market soon, there’s no point in ruffling feathers and appearing to be a malcontent.
