Mike Tannenbaum denied his decision to extend Mark Sanchez’s contract had anything to do with boosting the quarterback’s confidence. Nor was the extension – which guaranteed the streaky QB $8.25 million in 2013 – a means to make up for the Jets brief flirtation with future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning. “That is totally not true,” the Jets former GM said during an ESPN radio Tuesday on Radio Row...
