Mark Sanchez tried to lay low as the final weeks of the most humiliating season in New York Jets’ history came to a close. After Sanchez lead the Jets down the rabbit-hole to another defeat, he took the time to say his peace.

When asked if he wanted to remain in New York despite the drama that has plagued the team for two consecutive seasons, Sanchez made it clear he wants to stay.

He also stated that he wants to do it with his coach.

“Of course, of course,” Sanchez told ESPN. ”I mean, this is where it all started, this is where we’ve had a bunch of fun playing a ton of games, almost 40 wins for Rex (Ryan) and I. We know we can be successful here, so hopefully things work out. If not, I just can’t speculate. We’ll see.”

“Coach Ryan is a fighter,” Sanchez said. “He wants this thing bad, just like I do. We’ve had our taste of success here, a couple of deep playoff runs where we were really a quarter or a half away from a Super Bowl, almost twice.”turning to New York are high.

New York is financially married to Sanchez. If they cut him they will eat over 12 million in cap space.

He is due $8.25 million regardless of what happens. There will not be another team that will take on that contract. It’s that simple.

Like the old cliché says ‘ it’s cheaper to keep her.’

“I mean, I’m contracted here, I want to be here,” he said. “That’s all I’ve known is a Jets uniform. I plan on playing here forever, so who knows?”

GM Mike Tannenbaum knows. And he created a mess that has set this team back at least four seasons.
