New York Jets release Mark Sanchez, then sign Michael Vick
The big question for the Jets now is what head coach Rex Ryan will do with that tattoo of his wife in a Sanchez jersey.
Maybe he'll have it laser-modified into a Michael Vick jersey, as the Jets have released Mark Sanchez and signed Michael Vick. Vick's deal is one year for $5 million, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Deadspin, the go-to site for unflattering supercut videos of athletes performing terribly, already has their Mark Sanchez tribute video posted. You'd better believe it shows the "buttfumble" from six different camera angles.
Vick, seen at right signing his Jets contract, has not appeared in a game since late October when he aggravated a pulled hamstring. Nick Foles took over, becoming last year's great NFL Cinderella story.
As one sharp-eyed tweeter points out, Vick appears on the cover of the Eagles 2014 calendar.
Sanchez' release was expected, and he did not play at all in 2013 after injuring his shoulder in the preseason. It's hard to believe he was once nicknamed "The Sanchize" and took the Jets to two consecutive AFC Championship Games.
But ever since, it as if Sanchez has done nothing... but fumble.
