Former New York Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum believes QB Tim Tebow can still play quarterback in the NFL despite a forgettable 2012 season. Tannenbaum refused to write off his career just yet. "I could never say that," Tannenbaum said. "This is a guy that was successful in high school, won championships in college. He's the type of person, he's either going to be successful as a pro quarterback, or die trying."

Former New York Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum acknowledged Thursday, Feb. 14, during a television interview that signing QB Mark Sanchez to a five-year, $58.25 million deal may have been a mistake considering Sanchez's lack of progress. "I don't think I would have signed a quarterback to an extension knowing that he'd have 26 turnovers," Tannenbaum said. "That might be one of the reasons I'm right sitting here with you guys. Not that this is not a great place to spend Valentine's Day." Tannenbaum still thinks Sanchez can turn his game around. "But if we're sitting here a year or two from now, I still think Mark's going to be a good, credible quarterback in the NFL."

Former New York Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum felt the contract extension the team awarded to QB Mark Sanchez was the best move long-term for the franchise. "We thought we were getting cost certainty for a guy we thought would be our quarterback for years to come," Tannenbaum said. "That was our thinking when we did it. Obviously, based on this year, it hasn't worked out that way yet. But I think Mark's career is far from over." Sanchez received a three-year extension, including an $8.25 million guarantee for 2013.

At the end of the day, it didn't go as we had planned."
