Mike Vick, the former quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles, is now with the New York Jets. Mark Sanchez was released by the Jets at the time of Vick's signing, has a new team.
He's headed to — where else? — Philadelphia.
According to CBS Sports, Sanchez will sign with the Eagles. The report says Sanchez was pursued by several teams before deciding on the Eagles.
In Philadelphia, Sanchez will likely play behind Nick Foles, the quarterback who emerged as a steady presence to lead Chip Kelly's offense after Vick was injured. Sanchez isn't expected to take the starting role from Foles, but instead will give the Eagles a tested back-up for Foles.
For Sanchez, it's a place for a reset without a huge spotlight on him. At 27, he still has the chance for a successful career in the NFL. He's getting his next chance in Philadelphia.
