Kelly also revealed that "here has been no talk with Bradford about a contract extension at this time."
Bradford was shipped from St. Louis to Philadelphia on Tuesday, just after the start of free agency. He missed all of last season after tearing his ACL in the preseason, and he's scheduled to make $13 million in 2015 -- the final year of his contract.
Sanchez's deal will be worth a total of $16 million with $5.5 million guaranteed.
Sanchez, once a starter for the Jets, spent this past season in a backup role with the Eagles. However, Sanchez was pressed into starting duty after Nick Foles broke his collarbone. Sanchez finished the year with 2,418 yards, 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

Sanchez is arguably considered the best quarterback available in the market. He signed a one-year contract with Philadelphia last offseason and took over for Nick Foles when he broke his collarbone.

USA Today was the latest to ask Ryan about bringing Sanchez to Buffalo, but Ryan did his best to dance around the question since Sanchez is still under contract with the Eagles.

But the numbers are what the numbers are with all the quarterbacks. Right now we’re in the early stages, the evaluating stages of possible free agents, draft picks and the two guys that we already have on the roster, so that’s really where we’re at right now and too early to tell who’s going to be here, who’s not going to be here and really what our answers would be."
Sanchez was with the Jets from 2009-13. Ryan was fired as the Jets coach in December after six seasons with the team.
