Jets remain long shots to win Bowl

Michael Vick Mark Sanchez New York Jets 2015 Super Bowl odds betting

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (The Spread) - The two moves the New York Jets made on Friday had zero affect on their odds to win the 2015 Super Bowl.

The Jets signed veteran quarterback Michael Vick to a one-year, $5 million contract on Saturday that coincided with the release of former No. 5 overall pick Mark Sanchez. Vick will be reunited with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, whom he spent some time with in Philadelphia before Mornhinweg took the OC job in New York. Vick threw for 1,215 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions over six starts with the Eagles last year.

Meanwhile, the Jets tried to trade Sanchez for a late-round pick and considered keeping him on a revised deal, but ultimately gave up on the struggling veteran. By releasing Sanchez, the Jets created $8.3 million in cap space and avoided paying his $2 million roster bonus.

As of right now it's unclear which teams could be interested in Sanchez, although he has ties to Brian Schottenheimer and the Rams are in the market for a backup quarterback, so maybe he'll wind up in St. Louis. Teams like Jacksonville, Cleveland and Minnesota may also show some interest based on their need at the position.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Jets are 66/1 long shots to win the 2015 Super Bowl after opening with 50/1 odds. They're also 33/1 long shots to win the AFC title last year after opening with those same 33/1 odds.
