Jets Want To Name Offensive Coordinator Before Deciding On Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow
Several times today Rex Ryan said that he wants next year's Jets offense to be "unpredictable," right now that could also extend to the statuses of quarterbacks Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow, Mike Vorkunov of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Ryan and owner Woody Johnson would not speak to the future of either quarterback at their press conference, though neither one denied that there will be an open competition for who the Jets' starting quarterback will be next season.
Ryan said that the Jets first need to hire an offensive coordinator and implement his system before they want to talk about where Sanchez fits in.
"We’ll see what happens," Ryan said. "Let’s get the general manager and the offensive coordinator in place before we answer any questions specifically about players."
Last month, the Jets were open to all possibilities with Sanchez, but that was while former general manager Mike Tannenbaum was still in place, Sanchez is guaranteed to make $8.25 million in 2013.
Today, Ryan and Johnson both said that money will not dictate their decisions.
"Obviously, the situation, the offensive coordinator, his system, all those kinds of things, there will be a lot of things that go into it but, money, the financial part of it, will not have any of the considerations for it," Ryan said. "We’ll play the player that fits what we do best. That we believe gives us the best chance."
Johnson added: "I concur."

Sanchez is going to be on the Jets roster. His contract is going to dictate that. $17 million dollars against the cap? They're not eating that. They don't have $13M in cap space to release him. If they did, they'd have to find $13M in cap space (the same day - if they didn't beforehand) to make the salary cap even. The other problem would be that the players they cut, could count more against the cap as well...so it could actually wind up being more than $13M in 2013 to get rid of Sanchez.
So 5, 6, 7 guys would need to be cut before replacing Sanchez and who is he going to be replaced with?

yep, the sanchez contract was one of the most bizarre in recent memory and most of us said it at the time.
i don't think any o.c. who cares about his reputation would accept sanchez or tebow as his q.b.
although .............. it could make him look like a genius if he can get anything out of either one (ala mike mccoy in denver) ....... so maybe an o.c. would be smart to accept one of them
