New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg believes that Mark Sanchez is the early favourite to be the starting quarterback in 2013.

Marty Mornhinweg has said that Mark Sanchez is the early favourite to be the New York Jets' starting quarterback in 2013.

The 26-year-old lost the starting role to Greg McElroy towards the end of last season.

The Jets' new offensive coordinator told reporters: "Mark will probably have just a little bit of a leg up, it would appear.

"I would like to have competition at that position as well as all the other positions. There are a select few on this football team that have kind of earned the right to step in there as No. 1 on the depth chart.

"I certainly would like competition at all the other spots, including the quarterback spot."

Sanchez threw 18 interceptions during his 15 games in 2012.
