Sanchez signed a one-year contract with the Bears on Thursday, ESPN's Jeff Dickerson reports.

EDGE Analysis

After visiting with team officials Wednesday, Sanchez and the Bears finalized a one-year deal with the veteran late Thursday. The Bears gave Mike Glennon a multi-year deal earlier in the offseason, so Sanchez's arrival in Chicago is primarily to add depth behind the former Buccaneer. Sanchez served as Dak Prescott's backup in Dallas last season and appeared in two games, completing 10-of-18 passes for 93 yards and two interceptions.

Sanchez is expected to sign with the Bears, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran signal caller had a successful meeting with the Bears on Wednesday and it appears the two sides are working towards finalizing a deal. Given that the Bears inked former Buccaneer Mike Glennon to a hefty, multi-year deal earlier in the offseason, Sanchez would presumably be signing to be Chicago's backup. Sanchez appeared in two games with the Cowboys in relief of Dak Prescott last season, completing 10-of-18 passes for 93 yards with two interceptions.

Sanchez is slated to visit the Bears on Thursday, the Chicago Sun Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

With new starter Mike Glennon and Connor Shaw currently the only QBs the Bears have under contract, the team's interest in Sanchez makes some sense. The fifth overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft is veteran backup material these days and is coming off a 2016 season in which he made two appearances for the Cowboys, completing 10 of 18 passes for 93 yards and two picks in the process.

Sanchez is inactive for Sunday's playoff game against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez, who logged some action in Week 17, when the Cowboys took it easy on a number of their key starters, is once again the odd man out at QB, with Tony Romo slated to serve as Dak Prescott's backup Sunday.

Sanchez is expected to handle most of the reps at quarterback Sunday in Philadelphia, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Cowboys cannot lose their standing as the No. 1 seed in the NFC portion of the postseason, but the health of key players is paramount for the divisional round and potentially beyond. As such, Dak Prescott will be under center for the Cowboys' first offensive snap of Week 17, only to be removed at a point perhaps known just to head coach Jason Garrett. Upon Prescott's departure, Sanchez rather than nominal backup Tony Romo will lead the offense the rest of the way.

Sanchez is expected to be active for Sunday's Week 17 matchup against the Eagles, Darren Woodson of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Cowboys have already locked up a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, so Dak Prescott likely won't get too much work against the Eagles on Sunday. That said, the Cowboys also don't want to risk injuring Tony Romo by playing him behind a line compiled of bench players, so Sanchez will be active and should get the call instead of Romo to give Prescott some early relief. We should see an official designation at some point later this week, but for now, expect Sanchez to be active and serve as the team's primary backup Sunday.

Sanchez (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 11 tilt versus the Ravens, David Helman of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran signal caller will thus be out of uniform for the first time this season as a result of the long-awaited return of Tony Romo (back), who will serve as Dak Prescott's backup against the Ravens going forward.

Sanchez took over from Dak Prescott late in Sunday's 35-10 blowout of the Browns, completing his only pass attempt for eight yards and running the ball twice for minus-2 yards.

EDGE Analysis

It was Sanchez's first regular season action as a Cowboy, but it could well be his last with Tony Romo (back) getting close to returning to the lineup. With Prescott playing so well, the team isn't likely to carry three QBs on their 53-man roster, so Romo's return could well signal Sanchez's release.

The Cowboys will sign the recently-released Sanchez, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a stellar preseason, Dak Prescott proved to head coach Jason Garrett and the rest of the Cowboys' decision makers that he's capable of running the offense in Tony Romo's (back) stead. However, with only second-year pro Jameill Showers available for quarterback duty, Sanchez will be brought in to provide a veteran presence in the QB room.

The Broncos released Sanchez on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez's fate was seemingly sealed when he was held out of the final two preseason games, but Denver's brass has made it official. Head coach Gary Kubiak will thus hand the reins of the offense to Trevor Siemian when the Broncos open the post-Peyton Manning era on Thursday against the Panthers. Meanwhile, Sanchez could land on a quarterback-needy team like the Cowboys in the near future.
