Tannenbaum was just wrong for Sanchez extension Dan Leberfeld
Mike Tannenbaum made a shocking decision last spring to guarantee Mark Sanchez $20.5 million over two years, with the quarterback was coming off a bad season.
“We thought we were getting cost certainty for a guy we thought would be our quarterback for years to come,” Tannenbaum told ESPN New York. “That was our thinking when we did it. Obviously, based on this year, it hasn’t worked out that way yet. But I think Mark’s career is far from over.”
There is no defending that decision on any level, even if Tannenbaum thinks “Mark’s career is far from over.”
Joe Flacco is still on his rookie contract, and he’s playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday.
