According to Mike Klis of 9News in Denver, the Broncos have traded a conditional pick for Mark Sanchez of the Philadelphia Eagles. Sanchez, who threw for 616 yards and 4 touchdowns in 4 games for the Eagles last season, has not been a consistent starter since his time with the New York Jets. This move comes on the heels of the Broncos losing both Peyton Manning to retirement and Brock Osweiler to the Houston Texans in Free Agency.
For the Broncos, this is clearly a desperation move. Sanchez is not a starting quarterback in the NFL, but there are not a lot of options for the defending Super Bowl champions. With multiple pieces being swept away to other teams, the Broncos look poised to take a serious step back this year in the AFC.
While Mark Sanchez is a better option than other names being floated around there such as Colin Kaepernick, who has said he would rather be traded to the Cleveland Browns, and Johnny Manziel, who is fresh off of being released, I would be extremely surprised if the Broncos are even close to the team that we saw in 2015.
