The Arizona Cardinals are another team in desperate need of a quarterback, as neither John Skelton, Kevin Kolb nor Ryan Lindley have proven to be viable options.
That's why Sanchez could be appealing. His job would be simple: Get the ball to Larry Fitzgerald.
Sanchez has struggled, in part, because he has a lack of receivers. Santonio Holmes is out for the year and Sanchez doesn't have people who can consistently get open.
On the Cardinals, he would have one of the best receivers in football to throw to. That alone would make his job easier.
Add in players like Andre Roberts and Michael Floyd and you have the makings of a top receiving core. Sanchez is not a bad quarterback. As coach Rex Ryan said,
Mark’s won games in this league. It’s not like he hasn’t...It’s hard to win playoff games in this league, and he’s got four of them … all on the road. Wins against Peyton Manning on the road. Wins against Tom Brady. It’s not like he doesn’t have the tools to do it. That’s why we did take him with the fifth overall pick.
What's needed, then, is a change of scenery. The pressure cooker of New York has not worked for Sanchez—getting him back to the West Coast would do a world of good.
Arizona, if they traded for Sanchez, could then finally improve their offensive line. Trading for Sanchez would open up a lot of good opportunities for the Cards.
