Tonight’s poll: Should the Seahawks sign Mark Sanchez?

In case you missed it, the Jets today released quarterback Mark Sanchez.

And given Sanchez’s ties to Seahawks coach Pete Carroll — he played for Carroll at USC — the Times tonight is wondering if you think the Seahawks should  make a run at him.

My take? No. Seattle already has signed Tarvaris Jackson to serve again as the backup to Russell Wilson in 2014, a role he seems well-suited for at this stage of his career, and a role that he is also perfect for given his experience with the team and the status he holds as a leader in the locker room. Seattle doesn’t need someone to compete with Wilson, so a backup spot is all that it could offer Sanchez, anyway.

Seattle also has B.J. Daniels under contract for next season, and as a second-year player, he seems to fit better the role of a No. 3/practice squad QB. So from this vantage point, Sanchez-to-the-Seahawks doesn’t seem to make a ton of sense.
