According to Eliot Shorr-Parks on NJ.com, the Eagles and soon-to-be unrestricted free agent quarterback Mark Sanchez have "a strong mutual interest in reuniting next season."
The Eagles and Sanchez are allowed to hammer out a new deal prior to the start of Tuesday's 4 p.m. free agency bonanza, but beginning at Noon on Saturday other teams can start talks with Sanchez's agent.
Sanchez was signed by the Eagles to a one-year deal last offseason after missing all of 2013 with a shoulder injury to back up Nick Foles. However, Sanchez took over in Week 9 after Foles suffered a season-ending collarbone injury and went 4-4 as a starter completing a career-high and franchise-record 64.1 percent of his pass attempts for 2,418 yards with 14 touchdowns against 11 interceptions for a 88.4 passer rating, also a career best.
He came off the bench and threw two touchdowns to help lead the Eagles to the win over the Texans. The following week, in his first start since the 2012 season with the Jets, Sanchez threw for 332 yards and two touchdowns in a Monday night rout of the Panthers. On Thanksgiving, Sanchez completed 69 percent of his passes and accounted for two touchdowns in the Eagles' biggest win of the season over the Cowboys.
A former first-round pick of the Jets in 2009, Sanchez has completed 56.3 percent of his pass attempts for 14,510 yards with 82 career passing touchdowns with another 13 on the ground.
