With the competition for the starting QB spot in full effect, it is easy to question whether or not Sanchez has a future in New York. He is expected to make $8.25 million guaranteed whether he remains a part of the organization or not, but the Jets have not ruled out releasing Sanchez just yet.
It has been reported that rookie QB, Geno Smith, is expected to start Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and that Quinn will be used as a safety net should the Jets need one.
As of right now, Smith is the in the lead for the starting spot and doesn’t necessarily need the W in Week 1, but definitely needs to show he’s ready. The Jets need to keep him confident and ready for the expected, action-packed season opener.
