Jets GM John Idzik, appearing on WFAN radio, was asked if he feels “comfortable” with QB Mark Sanchez.
He replied, “I feel comfortable with Mark being a Jet. I told him we’re going to add competition and everyone should be up for it. It’s going to make Mark, and everybody else, better.”
Idzik said he has spoken to Sanchez, and he said the embattled quarterback is “champing at the bit. He wants to get going with his new coordinator. He’s all about competing. I got a really good feeling from Mark.”
Sanchez has a $12.8 million cap charge and a contract that is almost immovable, so it’s not exactly breaking news that Idzik would confirm his place on the roster.
