Will Jets take a look at Peyton?
New York Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum wouldn't completely rule out taking a look at Peyton Manning, though he professed happiness with current quarterback Mark Sanchez.
Tannenbaum's comments came on ESPN Radio and were reported by the New York Post, as he was asked specifically if the Jets would "kick the tires" on Manning if he is released by the Indianapolis Colts on March 8.
“It’s really important that we always try to improve the team," Tannenbaum said. “With that said, I expect Mark Sanchez to be our quarterback next year, but when we have opportunities to improve our team that’s what we’re going to do.”
Sanchez took his share of criticism with 26 turnovers as the Jets finished 8-8 and out of the playoffs in a year where Coach Rex Ryan had predicted a Super Bowl.
