Reports: Eagles expected to land QB Mark Sanchez

As Michael Vick settles in with the Jets, it looks like the void he left as the backup quarterback in Philadelphia will be filled by a former Jet.
ESPN's Chris Mortensen first reported Monday that Mark Sanchez is expected to sign with the Eagles. This was corroborated by the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta shortly thereafter, and Pro Football Talk added, via a source, that Philadelphia "wants to learn more about [Sanchez's] injured shoulder before proceeding." Mortensen says that Sanchez has resumed throwing and is about 80 percent recovered from the surgery to fix the labrum in his right shoulder that he underwent in October.

Fantasy Analysis:

Got all that? It's not done yet, but assuming what is expected does happen, it would have no impact on Nick Foles' fantasy value. Sanchez would presumably push Matt Barkley for the No. 2 job in Chip Kelly's system. I could make some jokes about Sanchez, but that would be too cheap and easy, so I'll just stop here since I have nothing left to say about this.
