Rumor Mill: Sanchez Returns On New Deal

The Eagles and quarterback Mark Sanchez have reportedly agreed upon a new two-year deal, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Sanchez will not be allowed to hit the open market and returns to Philadelphia where he started the final eight games of the 2014 season after the season-ending injury to Nick Foles. Sanchez 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.

A former first-round pick of the Jets in 2009, Sanchez has completed 56.3 percent of his career pass attempts for 14,510 yards with 82 career passing touchdowns with another 13 on the ground.

After missing all of the 2013 season due to a shoulder injury, Sanchez signed with the Eagles on a one-year deal last offseason. Fully healthy, Sanchez had some of the best numbers of his career, looked comfortable in the Eagles' offense and doesn't turn 29 years old until November.
