Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez has expressed his belief that he couldn't have ended up in a better place following his departure from the New York Jets.

Sanchez saw his five-year spell with the Jets come to an end this off-season, having missed the entire 2013 campaign with a shoulder injury.

The 27-year-old has fond memories of his time in New York but believes that his future in Philadelphia could be even brighter, suggesting that his shoulder injury has turned out to be a "blessing in disguise".

"I'm not going to do the comparison thing. I loved everything that happened there [with the Jets]. Everything. Good, bad, ugly, don't care. It was an awesome time," Sanchez is quoted as saying by Newsday.

"But I'm an Eagle now. I love being here. This is the best place I could have landed. Maybe this whole shoulder thing and relocation has just been a blessing in disguise. Maybe that year off was exactly what I needed. Got a little rest for my legs, for my arm, and I feel great."

Sanchez is expected to act as backup to Nick Foles for the Eagles next season.
