Shurmur Affirms Sanchez's Value

With rumors connecting the Rams with Mark Sanchez, Pat Shurmur dampens the chatter a bit.

Eagles Offensive Coordinator Pat Shurmur was naturally asked about Mark Sanchez's availability, should the Rams, or any team for that matter, inquire about a trade.

Over a week after Chip Kelly said it'd take a honey of a deal to pry Sanchez from Philadelphia, Shurmur took to the podium Monday to affirm the value of the Eagles' back-up quarterback.

The Twitter feed @EaglesInsider covered the highlights of Shurmur's presser, including remarks on Josh Huff, Ifeanyi Momah, Chris Polk, and others. Among the Sanchez talk was this telling quote:

"I think everybody should be interested in Mark Sanchez. He's done well for us and we're very glad we have him ... But we have him."

In other words, based on the insistence of the Eagles coaches, don't expect to see Sanchez head for the Gateway anytime soon.
