Sanchez, the team's first-round pick in 2009, would cost the Jets a $17.1 million salary cap hit if they cut him. So, it would seem unlikely New York would do that — although they could try to trade him.

Tebow saw limited action after being expected to be a major part of the offense when he was acquired from Denver last March. The popular backup acknowledged at the end of the season that he was "disappointed" at his lack of use, and has yet to comment definitively on what he expects his future to hold.

With Mornhinweg's connection to the Eagles, there could be some thoughts that Michael Vick could follow him to the Jets if Philadelphia cuts him. But, newly hired Eagles coach Chip Kelly might want to keep Vick to run the read-option offense.

The 50-year-old Mornhinweg was previously the head coach of the Detroit Lions, and was also an assistant with San Francisco and Green Bay.
