Tannenbaum: Sanchez deal may have led to firing

Under the heading of "Well, duh," or "No, you know what, Sherlock" former New York Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum said Thursday on NFL AM (via NFL.com here) that the contract he gave quarterback Mark Sanchez might have played a role in his firing after last season.

Tannenbaum was let go by the Jets after Sanchez received a $58.25 million extension from the club last March. That contract not only has hurt the club cap-wise, but Sanchez threw 18 interceptions and lost eight fumbles last year as the Jets dropped to 6-10.

"I don't think I would have signed a quarterback to an extension knowing that he'd have 26 turnovers," Tannenbaum said. "That might be one of the reasons I'm right sitting here with you guys. Not that this is not a great place to spend Valentine's Day."

Tannenbaum also brought Tim Tebow to New York, which not only created a media circus, but also proved to be a distraction as the floundering Jets barely used the former Heisman Trophy winner for anything on offense in 2012.
