If/when the Jets ship cornerback Darrelle Revis to the Buccaneers, another current member of the roster could be making the trip to Tampa, too.

While poking around the question of whether the Jets could be trying to include quarterback-of-all-trades Tim Tebow in the package (which would keep the Jets from cutting Tebow and seeing him sign with the Patriots), we tripped over a previously unknown nugget. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the discussions between the Jets and Bucs have included the possibility of the Buccaneers assuming the contract of quarterback Mark Sanchez.

Yes, Sanchez. He has a guaranteed base salary of $8.25 million for 2013. If he didnít, Sanchez would have been cut by now. If the Jets could unload that obligation, theyíd surely jump at the chance.

Itís unclear whether Sanchez would compete for the starting job in Tampa. On one hand, he hasnít done enough in recent years to justify the opportunity. On the other hand, coach Greg Schiano doesnít seem to be sold on quarterback Josh Freeman, who was taken 12 spots behind Sanchez in the 2009 draft.

Sanchez thrived in New York during a couple of Schianoís seasons at Rutgers. Schiano possibly thinks he could coax better performances out of the man who took the Jets to back-to-back AFC title games to start his career. In Tampa, his offensive coordinator would be Mike Sullivan, who helped Eli Manning to a couple of Super Bowl wins.

Or maybe the Bucs would simply be absorbing Sanchezís salary and cap number for 2013, and turning around and cutting him loose.

At this point, all we know is that the subject has come up in the trade discussions. For now, itís still merely a possibility.

An intriguing possibility, but a possibility nevertheless.
Yea that entire thing has basically been shot down as of 3 minutes after that went out.
