It appears Mark Sanchez is definitely the odd man out in Denver, per NFL.com’s Jane Slater, as the Broncos are shopping him with a specific team in mind: the Dallas Cowboys.
Unfortunately for Denver, the Cowboys aren’t interested in Sanchez at his current $4.5 million salary. Unless Dallas really starts to feel the pressure in making a move to acquire him, he’ll have to take a pay cut to sweeten the deal in the Cowboys favor.
Sanchez was beaten out of the starting quarterback position in Denver by seventh-round pick Trevor Siemian, making him expendable as Denver grooms rookie Paxton Lynch as backup.
Instead of releasing the 29-year-old veteran, president John Elway would rather get a late-round pick in return.
