Mark Sanchez 3-year Contract Extension, QB Mark Sanchez received a three-year contract extension from the New York Jets. With Sanchez’s deal in place, the Jets have also dropped out of the Peyton Manning sweepstakes.
The team announced the extension for Sanchez Friday night. GM Mike Tannenbaum said the Jets “looked at” pursuing Manning but ultimately decided to keep Sanchez, who was New York’s first-round draft pick in 2009.
“When a first ballot Hall of Fame quarterback becomes available,” Tannenbaum said, “you look into it.”
Sanchez led the Jets to the AFC Championship game in his first two seasons, but the team struggled in 2011, finishing with a middling 8-8 record. The pursuit of Manning did not bother Sanchez.
“This is a business, and the team has an obligation to consider all of its options,” Sanchez said. “I’m excited they believed in me, and I’m the guy they want to move forward with in the future. I really didn’t think too much into it.”
New York is still looking for a backup quarterback after Mark Brunell parted ways with the team.
Eliza Kruger Pictures, Last week, the name of Eliza Kruger meant nothing to anyone. This week, the 17-year-old blonde is in the center of the biggest scandal of this week the media and has the pictures of the girl controversy.
For those of you who are unaware, Eliza Kruger caught the attention of the media when he told Deadspin.com that he joined the New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez. She sent the photos, he gave several accounts of his meeting with Mark and then decided he wanted nothing to do with the public the story goes. Well, needless to say no.
Most people are familiar with the story behind what happened with the Jets QB and the daughter of Konrad Kruger, but everyone wants to see more pictures of the girl’s creation in fashion.
Therefore, take a look at the pictures above and tell us if you want to risk ruining his career for a couple of wet nights with a high school student.
Of course, what we did together was not illegal (like Eliza so conveniently brought to Mark when we met), but definitely not worthy of praise.
Do you think it was a mistake from Mark Sanchez to connect with Eliza Kruger (note to all the ring on her engagement finger in that last photo? Rare!)?
