Possible Jaguar-Sanchez Conspiracy?

I have been pondering why on Earth the Jacksonville Jaguars would seriously take Mark Sanchez with the eighth overall pick.

It makes no sense.

David Garrard is only 31 and has three-plus years left in the NFL. He had no protection and a terrible receiving corps last year; hard to blame him for the ineffective offense.

The ultra-fiscally conservative Jaguars gave Garrard a 6-year, $60 million extension a year ago. Why they would spend No. 8 overall money on Sanchez when they would take a huge cap hit by releasing Garrard makes no sense to me - and paying both quarterbacks an insane amount of money makes no sense either.

It didn't make sense, that is, until a good friend of mine suggested another reason for these Jags-Sanchez rumors.

Think about it for a second. Which NFL team has had financial troubles the past few years and has been looking to sell the team?

Jacksonville.

What city does Roger Godell potentially want to move an NFL team to?

Los Angeles.

What player in the NFL or NFL Draft has the most marketability in the entire state of California?

Without a doubt, it is the Mexican-American, USC product, Vincent Chase look-a-like, outstandingly charismatic Mark Sanchez.

If Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver could add a player to his team to make the Jaguars as marketable as possible to the L.A. area, then he could potentially sell the Jaguars in this horrid economy.

Granted, Sanchez is a very good quarterback prospect in his own right, but this makes a lot of sense from a business standpoint if you're Weaver.

I still do not think this is probable to happen because the Jaguars want to move out of the eighth pick; there is no guarantee Weaver could sell the Jaguars to Los Angeles; and it doesn't make a lot of sense from a football perspective.

However, it is highly intriguing to think about nonetheless.
