With Mark Sanchez benched, Greg McElroy promoted and Tim Tebow hovering in his owner personal purgatory, the New York Jets' quarterback situation is anything but solidified for 2013. Many assume Sanchez will be gone after a horrendous 2012 in which he eventually lost his job.

As Lee Corso would say: Not so fast, my friend.

Two sources told Newsday's Bob Glauber that Sanchez will remain a Jet next season.

There aren't a ton of teams out there clamoring for Sanchez, his $8.25 million 2013 salary and those 17 interceptions he threw. Greg McElroy might be getting his shot Sunday against the San Diego Chargers, but he's probably not the quarterback of the future in New York. Tim Tebow obviously isn't. And coach Rex Ryan already denied the trade talk.

With all those uncertainties, it's not a stretch to picture Sanchez wearing green and white next year.
