Sanchez's season is over, as well as his Jets career

It looks like we have indeed seen the last of QB Mark Sanchez in a New York Jets uniform. According to a report on ESPN.com, Sanchez underwent surgery late Tuesday to repair a torn labrum, effectively ending his season. This is also pretty much the end of Sanchez's career with the Jets, as he will count $13.1M against the salary cap next season. The Gang Green are expected to cut him before his $2M roster bonus kicks in next March.

After leading the Jets to two consecutive AFC Championship appearances in his first two NFL seasons, Sanchez's play noticeably deteriorated in the last two seasons. His weaknesses were exposed without support of a powerful running attack and one of the best defenses in the NFL that the Jets had during their two playoff runs.

Last season's infamous Butt Fumble was the lowest point of Sanchez's career with the Jets. He was subsequently benched and never regained his spot as the starting QB.

    There is only 4.8 million in dead money if he is cut, not 13.1.

    I don't think it says $13.1M of dead money. It says that he counts $13.1M against the salary cap next season (if he remains on the roster).
