Jets Sanchez wants to keep all free agents

By Marc A. Greenberg

Free agency typically allows a team to get better. Weaknesses can get better, practically overnight, with the spending of some money.

For the New York Jets Mark Sanchez, QB in two straight AFC Championships, everything is fine as is.

Sanchez, appearing on “The Dan Patrick Show”  says that he wants everything to remain as is.

“Keeping as many guys as possible from last year’s team is the most important thing,” Sanchez said. “We have a decided advantage against a lot of teams with new offensive or defensive systems, new coordinators, new quarterbacks, new coaches.

“We have a good thing in place; we have a real good thing going, and we’d love to just build on that.”

Sanchez wants WRs Braylon Edwards and Santonio Holmes back, as well as CB Antonio Cromartie.   If it ain’t totally broken, don’t fix it.

Sanchez conceded that he needs to raise his game to get to the Super Bowl.  “I think that’s one of the most important things,” he said. “It’s really important for the chemistry; just to see the players again, just to talk about football, to see how everybody’s family is doing, go grab some food. Guys had a paintball tournament. That kind of stuff really does carry over to the field. For us to get together, it is a decided advantage when we start camp.”
