Mark Sanchez beats out fellow flameouts for Redskins job

Alex Smith

One of whom was Mark Sanchez, most famous for his butt-fumble as a member of the New York Jets a few seasons ago.

However, while trailing 17-7 in the third quarter Washington's worst nightmare came to fruition as Smith suffered a nasty right ankle injury while being sacked by two Houston defenders.

According to NFL.com, the Redskins have chose to sign Mark Sanchez, who will serve as Colt McCoy's backup in Washington. Redskins offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh was his quarterback coach with the Jets from 2009 to 2012 and offensive line coach Bill Callahan had the same job with the Jets from 2008 to 2011. Sanchez never panned out. He has thrown 86 touchdown passes and 86 interceptions during his career and owns a career 73.9 passer rating and a 40.2 QBR. From 2013 to 2017, the former No. 1 overall pick only missed four total games.

Colin Kaepernick's longstanding collusion case against the National Football League has a new star witness: Mark "Butt Fumble" Sanchez. Redskins passing game coordinator Kevin O'Connell was a backup quarterback for parts of three seasons with the Jets during Sanchez's time there.

Washington will play in Dallas on Thanksgiving Day with first place in the NFC East on the line.

The Sanchez signing will come at nearly the exact six-year anniversary of the Butt Fumble Game, which took place on the night of Thanksgiving in 2012.
