Some might say that Mark Sanchez just can’t catch a break. Others might say that Sanchez is an incredibly average quarterback and already caught his break by playing this long in the NFL. Either way you look at it, however, it was a surprise to most of the league when the Eagles signed Tim Tebow to back up Sanchez, who is backing up Sam Bradford.
Sanchez, who was with Tebow in New York, seems to feel like Tebow was added to the roster just as an extra arm for camp while Bradford recovers from his 147th shoulder injury. He told CSN Philadelphia that Tebow was added just as an extra arm.
"He’s obviously a great guy, he works hard. And we needed another guy to throw while Sam Bradford’s still recovering. So that’s the reason for the signing, at least as explained to me. We’re excited about the upcoming year and I think we have a great group.” – Mark Sanchez"
Seems odd to add quite possibly one of the least accurate quarterbacks in league history to your roster for a camp arm, but hey, who are we to judge what that kooky Chip Kelly is up to?
