Former New York Jets starting quarterback Mark Sanchez is going to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles today after a successful physical where his surgically-repaired shoulder and knee checked out, according to multiple reports.

Sanchez will become their new backup quarterback behind Nick Foles after being released by the Jets last Friday.

Sanchez was cut last Friday with a failed physical designation.

He spent last season on injured reserve, undergoing minor knee surgery and a shoulder procedure for his torn labrum.

He was due a $2 million roster bonus this week.

The Jets saved $8.3 million against the salary cap by releasing him.

Sanchez went 37-31 as a starter. As a rookie, he passed for 2,444 yards.

He went to two AFC championship games, but struggled in 2011 and 2012 and was benched.

He led the NFL with 52 turnovers during that span.
