FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – The New York Jets will consider all their options regarding quarterback Mark Sanchez in the offseason, a person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press.
The person, who requested anonymity because the team's personnel plans are private, tells the AP on Thursday that the Jets have not made any determinations involving Sanchez.
That means the benched quarterback's status is in limbo and a trade cannot be ruled out.
He's not alone. The futures of Tim Tebow, coach Rex Ryan and general manager Mike Tannenbaum with the Jets also are uncertain.
Parting ways with Tebow, the popular but little-used backup, appears likely.
But the Jets could be hard-pressed to trade or cut Sanchez, who is due $8.25 million in guarantees next season.
