The Denver Broncos have acquired quarterback Mark Sanchez for a conditional draft pick in 2017, general manager John Elway announced Friday.

The trade was first reported by Mike Klis of 9News in Denver.

Sanchez played in four games for the Eagles last season, his second year with the team. He threw 91 passes, completing 59 of them, with four touchdowns and four interceptions for a passer rating of 80.7.

The Broncos were searching for a quarterback this off-season after the retirement of Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler’s departure in free agency. In Sanchez, Denver acquires a player with playoff experience, with the quarterback having played in back-to-back AFC Championship Games with the New York Jets in 2009 and 2010.
