Sanchez has a connection to the Vikings via offensive assistant Pat Shurmur, who coached him in Philadelphia.
In Philly, Sanchez showed flashes of competence but was hardly brilliant. He was a winning quarterback in New York for a few seasons before the Jets soured on him.
The Broncos picked Sanchez up as veteran insurance but appear ready to go with the kids.
It’s easy to look at the still-just-29-year-old Sanchez and think that he just needs to land in the right situation. And it’s easy to think the Vikings, with their strong running game and good defense, might be that situation.
