New Jets general manager John Idzik said Monday that Mark Sanchez will be pushed for the starting quarterback job, vowing to add competition. According to the Newark Star-Ledger
, the Jets have had “some very exploratory, informal discussions” regarding JaMarcus Russell. Discussions took place after previous GM Mike Tannenbaum was fired. Also, New York was linked to Russell in the past, so the idea isn’t totally foreign to the organization.
