Denver Broncos acquire Eagles back-up QB Mark Sanchez

The Denver Broncos have found a quarterback. However, it’s not known if John Elway, the team’s general manager, will have this individual as their starting quarterback next season.

The Broncos have acquired Mark Sanchez — who no longer had a future in Philadelphia — in exchange for a 2017 conditional draft pick. The pick that the Broncos gave up is a 7th-round pick and it could move up depending on the incentives put on the pick, usually playing time.

New Eagles head coach Doug Pederson made it clear when the team signed back-up Chase Daniel to a contract that Sanchez was no longer in the team’s plans.

In two starts last season when Sam Bradford was out with an injury, the Eagles were blown out 90-31 in those games. They lost 45-17 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, then a few days later, they lost 45-14 to the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day.

He was 59-of-91 for 616 yards with four touchdowns and four interceptions last season in four appearances.

He signed with the Eagles in 2014 as a free agent after playing for the New York Jets. He signed to be the back-up to then-starting quarterback Nick Foles.

When Foles went down with an injury, Sanchez went 4-4 in eight starts. Yet, the Eagles missed the playoffs with their 10-6 record.

He went 198-309 for 2,418 yards and threw 14 touchdowns as the starter in 2014. He also threw 11 interceptions.

With the Broncos, he’ll likely be the Broncos back-up as the team looks for their starting quarterback. Whoever they name the starter, they’ll have a lot of pressure to live up to as they have to replace living legend Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler.

Manning retired, while Osweiler took the money and ran to be the Houston Texans quarterback.
