Mark "Butt Fumble" Sanchez Has Retired

When quarterback Mark Sanchez was selected by the New York Jets with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft out of USC, he was supposed to be the man who would take down Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. It never happened...

He did lead The Jets to the AFC Championship Game his first 2 seasons, getting the nickname, "The Sanchize," but things went downhill from there for him and the team. The Jets haven't been in the postseason since 2010 and Sanchez ended up bouncing around the league to 5 different teams.

Today he announced his retirement from the NFL at the age of 32, and ESPN announced that he will be heading to the broadcast booth for their college football coverage.

He leaves behind one of the most infamous plays in football history. Thanksgiving night in 2012 playing on national TV against The Jets arch enemy The Patriots, "The Butt Fumble" legend was born, and will haunt him the rest of his days...

Let's break it down.
