Status quo for Jets: Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow not switching places

Andrew Burton

Mark Sanchez will remain the starting quarterback of the New York Jets.

Mark Sanchez will remain the starting quarterback of the New York Jets through 2013, according to a report by Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com.

Citing a source inside the organization, Florio states that the team doesn't anticipate benching Sanchez any time during this season. According to sources close to Sanchez, the quarterback will remain the starter largely because of the three-year contract extension he signed with the team in March of 2012.

However, head coach Rex Ryan still has the authority to make any changes to the starting lineup that he wishes. If he believes that benching Sanchez is the best option for the team to win then he will be free to make that decision. With Sanchez struggling this season, fans and media alike have started calling for backup Tim Tebow to take over control as the leader of the offense. Tebow was acquired this past offseason in a trade with the Denver Broncos.
