FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - The New York Jets and quarterback Mark Sanchez reached an agreement on a multiyear contract Wednesday.

Sanchez was the fifth overall pick in the NFL draft in April after leading Southern California to a Rose Bowl victory over Penn State with a record-setting performance. The quarterback is competing with veteran Kellen Clemens for the Jets' starting job, up for grabs after the retirement of Brett Favre.

The deal is for five years and contains $28 million in guarantees, ESPN reported. Other terms of the contract were not immediately available, but it was expected to be for quite a bit less than the $41.7 million in guarantees Detroit gave top pick Matthew Stafford as part of a six-year deal worth up to $78 million.

New York's last two top picks, linebacker Vernon Gholston and cornerback Darrelle Revis, reported to training camp late while trying to negotiate deals.

Sanchez has impressed at times during organized team activities and minicamp practices, showing lots of poise, confidence and good decision-making skills. He and Clemens have been about even in their competition.

"You gain confidence as you go," Sanchez said earlier Wednesday. "Now I am starting to really feel the defense and see what is going on. As difficult as our defense can be I am starting to get an idea."

The Jets made a bold draft-day move to get Sanchez, acquiring the fifth overall pick from Cleveland and former coach Eric Mangini for their first-round pick, their second-rounder (No. 52), and defensive end Kenyon Coleman, safety Abram Elam and quarterback Brett Ratliff.

Sanchez went 14-2 as a starter with the Trojans, including the Rose Bowl win in January. His lack of experience he had only one full season as a starter had some questioning whether he was truly ready for the NFL, but the Jets loved what they saw of him in private workouts and a classroom session in a hotel room at the owners' meetings in California in March.

After drafting Sanchez, coach Rex Ryan said there would be an open competition for the quarterback job.

"We've got two really good quarterbacks, and the competition is going to be fierce," Ryan said on the first day of minicamp Tuesday. "At training camp, it's going to be a great battle."

Sanchez already is becoming a fan favorite, with several fans in the crowd at minicamp wearing his No. 6 jersey. He also has gotten lots of attention, befitting that of a budding star in New York, with a swimsuit spread in GQ magazine, throwing out the first pitch at a Mets game and tabloids wondering about his love life.

But Sanchez says he's concentrating on his game on the field.

"I think that more than anything, the next couple of days are vital," he said. "I have to show that I'm really coming along from rookie camp. Then next week, we have rookie OTAs for first- and second-year guys and rookies. With all of the veterans gone, that is my chance to really take charge and assume command of the offense."

Wow, he made a huge mistake not returning to school. He likely would have gone #1 next year. With Stafford getting 41 mil guaranteed this year, Sanchez probably could have walked off with 45 million instead of 28.

He's on a decent team, with what seems to be a good coach, and he's one of the highest paid players in the league.

SUCKS TO BE HIM!

Exactly.

Hell, he could have played hardball and gotten more THIS year. I was fully expecting him to get Matt Ryan's deal from last year.

Instead, he's signed early.

Pretty clear that football is his priority, not money.

I think that McCoy has a lot of work on mechanics and reads when he gets to the NFL, and he'll take time to develop, but I also think that if he can learn, he has some intangibles that could eventually rasie him to Drew Brees level.

Just you wait. He's gonna be really great. Harrell had 70.6% last year, and he's the product of the spread, but with the CONSENSUS BEST RECEIVER IN THE COUNTRY (i.e. just having him on the field opened up everything for everyone else). McCoy was able to put a much better percentage (76.7%) while also RUNNING THE BALL A SHIT TON, plus he had no one on his fucking team. So don't give me that crap about him being a product of the spread. Harrell is a product of the spread. McCoy worked for his numbers, and he will be the best QB out of next years draft regardless of where he's picked.

I think there is almost certainly no question that Harrell's numbers are the product of the system, but McCoy's are as wwell.

However, as I said he brings some intangibles to the table that you don't see from other spread QBs.

I don't know that he'll be the best QB out of the next draft, but I have very little doub that he'll be better than Bradford and TeBow.

yup

NY is a good fit for the kid imho. should have a good defense to protect his early mistakes as well as decent weapons to help move the chains on offense like the also inexperienced Shonn Green to grow with as players.

time will tell who will have the better career:
Cassel and Jackson
- or -
Sanchez and(Mauluaga/Brown/other player available at #34)

Cassel has alot of experience in the Pekins-Ernhart offensive system that KC, NE and Arizona have been running (KC for only 10 games, but Chan learned the offense from its creator as did Haley) and may have been the best option as an immediate, as well as long term upgrade.

IMHO if both were susccessful 15 game starters but one was successful in the NFL and has benefited from far superior NFL coaching as well as exposure to great leaders and what it takes to be a superior one and can be had for a far lesser price, its a no brainer.

Both were gambles and a team that is 2-14 has to factor in immediate upgrade as well as long term into its decision. I feel the right decision was made, but time will ultimatly tell.

should be fun!

The first-round salaries are getting unreal. These guys at the top of the draft walk into camp and get more money than most of the veterans at their position before they've even proved they can play the game. It's crazy (and it's the reason Belichick likes to drop down in the 1st round and rarely takes a high guy... IIRC Richard Seymour was #8 overall...).

Tyson Jackson's agent must be doing backflips. #1 and #5 are signed, with Tyson smack dab in the middle. I'm sure he'd take 34 million by splitting the difference in guaranteed money.

That's about what I was guessing ($32-$35M), but I'm sure Pioli's going to argue that being sandwiched between two QB's skews his real value. Either way... Not good for the Chiefs. If they haggle over the guaranteed money too much Jackson will miss valuable camp time. If they don't...the Chiefs are into him for 30+ LARGE.

This is why the system needs to be fixed. It is a joke to pay rookies the way they do. There needs to be a cap. Teams who draft in the top of the draft are set back huge when they miss a pick and to a certain extent when the pick works out. The NFL is the king of the mountain and it is hard to criticize the league that looks down on all others. But the money teams have to pay unproven players now is insane.

His real value is less than half that amount, but that's not happening.

We overpaid in term of draft value, and we'll end up overpaying monetarily in terms of positional value as well.

But, hey: PIOLI!
