Jets Sign Draft Pick Sanchez To Contract

By  | 

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - The New York Jets have reached a contract agreement with quarterback Mark Sanchez.

Sanchez was the fifth overall pick in the NFL draft in April after leading Southern California to a Rose Bowl victory over Penn State with a record-setting performance.

The quarterback is competing with veteran Kellen Clemens for the Jets' starting job, up for grabs after the retirement of Brett Favre.

The Jets made the announcement during Wednesday's minicamp.

Terms of the deal were not immediately available.
