Mark Sanchez wasn’t in the unemployment line for long.
The veteran quarterback signed with the Dallas Cowboys just minutes after being cut by the Denver Broncos, the team announced Saturday afternoon.

Sanchez is going from one uncertain quarterback situation to another. The Cowboys are expected to start rookie Dak Prescott at quarterback for at least the early stages of the season as Tony Romo recovers from a broken bone in his back sustained during the team’s third preseason game.
This will be Sanchez’s second stint in the NFC East. He spent the last two seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles before starting his pro career with the New York Jets.
The No. 5 overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft was beaten out for Denver’s starting job by former seventh-round pick Trevor Siemian. He might get a chance to take over in Dallas if Prescott struggles.
