Sanchez, who will remain in Southern California until the lockout ends, is back into his training regimen and is working with his longtime trainer Todd Norman.
“It feels good,” he said of his shoulder. “I just needed some rest. It’s been active rest, I haven’t really taken too much time off. I’m getting back into shape slowly. Todd doesn’t just want to run me into the ground in March and have me be too tired out when we go back.”
Jets West will reconvene this year with Sanchez hosting his receivers and tight ends for workouts where they will work on passing drills.
“We’ll probably do it twice,” he said. “Just to get them out with me. If those are the only workouts until training camp, we might as well do as many as we can. We’ll get the whole group together. Even if it’s getting a few guys together, everything helps to keep us on the same page and ready for the season.”
Good news to hear for the New York Jets and their fans. Mark Sanchez has gotten better from year 1 to year two but there is still a long way to go. He really needs to pick up his completion percentage and he can only do that with reps, reps and more reps. Marks footwork has always been good, his mechanics are good but he needs more live reps and focus on hitting targets with more consistency. Glad he’s back at it.
