Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly has told reporters he would be open to trade offers for QB Mark Sanchez, presumably to let Sanchez have a chance at the No. 1 job with another team.
Sanchez is currently listed as the Eagles No. 2 quarterback behind Nick Foles, but the team feels confident enough to use Matt Barkley as the backup if they are willing to find a suitor for the former Jets starter. Even if he is dealt before the start of the regular season he is a mediocre signal caller at best and an even worse fantasy option while sitting on a career 55 percent completion percentage.

Royals released LHP Joe Paterson.
The 29-year old former Diamondbacks reliever signed a minor league deal with the Royals this year, received an invite to spring training but still failed to make the team. He struggled at Triple-A Omaha and posted a 5.68 ERA over 12 innings, so the Royals felt it was better to make room and develop other pitchers. Analysis: Howard Bender
