New York Jets Training Camp: Mark Sanchez Admits 'Transition' With New Receivers

Plaxico Burress and Derrick Mason are in. Jerricho Cotchery, Braylon Edwards and Brad Smith are out. New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez admitted Monday that the Jets offense "is in a bit of a transition."

The third-year quarterback knows it will take some time for him to develop some rapport with Burress and Mason.

"These guys have played a lot of ball and they picked up our system very quickly so I think the most important thing for me is to get comfortable with their route running, understand what they're thinking, talking things out and then go play it out in the preseason and see how we do," Sanchez said.

Sanchez said Burress is "doing a great job picking up the checks and we'll just get him full speed as soon as possible."

He has been impressed by Mason thus far, calling him "a veteran, savvy guy, he knows how to use his body. He has really great hands and he'll teach us all quite a bit about playing. He's the ultimate pro. He's a respectful guy. He knows how to get his work in, knows when to take breaks, knows when to laugh, knows when to have fun and knows when to get to work."
