Mark Sanchez reiterated Thursday night that a full-team workout still is in the discussion stage.

The Jets' quarterback, appearing at Justin Tuck's celebrity billiards night in Manhattan, told reporters that he's waiting for the outcome of Friday's hearing in the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals before finalizing a time and place. Sanchez recognizes the court's decision may take up to three weeks, but he doesn't want to plan a workout until the dust settles.

A month ago, Sanchez hosted the "Jets West" passing camp in Southern California, which drew about 13 teammates. If they have a full-squad camp, it probably would be in New Jersey. On Thursday, the defensive linemen, led by Sione Pouha, held a workout at a high school in Northern New Jersey. Pouha said the team would respond favorably if Sanchez coordinated the event.

"When Mark makes the call ... we're there," Pouha said.

The Tom Brady-led Patriots concluded two days of workouts Thursday that drew about 40 players. Impressive. Asked how many he'd expect at a Jets workout, Sanchez said, "I don't know. How many guys do we have on the team? Fifth-something?"
