Seahawks reportedly interested in Mark Sanchez as backup QB

Mark Sanchez

The Seattle Seahawks are suddenly in the market for quarterback depth now that they had to release Trevone Boykin, and Mark Sanchez is a player who could help fill the void.

According to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, Sanchez has been mentioned as a possibility for the Seahawks.

Sanchez, who is currently a free agent, played his college ball at USC under Pete Carroll. He has bounced around to several different teams — mostly as a backup — after spending the first four seasons of his career with the New York Jets. As Condotta notes, the familiarity with Carroll combined with Sanchez’s acceptance that his days of starting are behind him could make the two sides a match.

Boykin served as Russell Wilson’s backup for the past two seasons, but the former TCU star was released on Tuesday after news surfaced that he is being investigated for allegedly breaking his girlfriend’s jaw. That was not the first time Boykin has found himself in legal trouble, which is why the Seahawks acted so swiftly.

Sanchez, 31, did not throw a pass with the Chicago Bears last season.
