Bears make it official, announce signing of quarterback Mark Sanchez

The Bears made things official Friday morning, announcing the signing of free-agent quarterback Mark Sanchez.

Sanchez has been much maligned since he was selected by the New York Jets with the fifth-overall pick in the 2009 draft.

In eight seasons — four with the New York Jets, two with the Philadelphia Eagles and one with the Dallas Cowboys — he's started 72 of the 77 games he's played in, completing 56.7 percent of his passes for 15,219 yards and 86 touchdowns compared to 86 interceptions.

He went to the playoffs in each of his first two seasons, reaching the AFC Championship Game with the Jets in both 2009 and 2010. In six career playoff games, he completed 60.5 percent of his throws for 1,155 yards, nine touchdowns and three interceptions.

Sanchez, the USC product, played in just two games as a backup with the Cowboys last season, completing 10 of his 18 passing attempts for 93 yards.

Sanchez joins a reshaped Bears quarterback group that added Mike Glennon as an expected starter earlier this offseason.
