If Jets fans frustrated with Mark Sanchez were hoping the team would make a play for Peyton Manning — should the Colts release him, that is — well, it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.
At least that’s what NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora had to say Wednesday when he broke down the situation on “NFL Total Access.”
“I don’t think it’s very realistic at all,” La Canfora said. “Talking to general managers and other people around the league, they don’t think Tom Condon, Peyton’s agent, will ultimately put him with the Jets. You would have the situation with him and (Eli Manning), and there’s already that rivalry there. You have the tabloid culture in New York. You have a team that slipped, the running game wasn’t there. …
“You don’t have a lot of playmakers there right now. The defense slipped. And there will be other options, probably, that make more sense for Peyton Manning. I don’t see it happening.”
Somewhere, Sanchez just breathed a sigh of relief.
