Jets backup QB Tim Tebow will asked to be traded or released

Report: Jets backup QB Tim Tebow will asked to be traded or*released | SI Tracking Blog

New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow will request to be traded or released after the season on the assumption that Greg McElroy starts the team’s final two games, reports the New York Daily News.

McElroy will start on Sunday against the San Diego Chargers, putting Mark Sanchez on the bench. The Jets (6-8) have already been eliminated from playoff contention with Monday night’s 14-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans, in which Sanchez threw four interceptions and lost a fumble.

Sanchez is guaranteed $8.25 million for next season, making it hard for the team to release him or risk taking a huge salary cap hit. NFL.com reports that it is “highly unlikely,” that Tebow will sit idle beyond this season in the wake of the team’s decision to start McElroy.

When asked about Tebow’s plan for the future, Jets head coach Rex Ryan was less than forthcoming. Tebow’s base salary for next season is scheduled to be $2.6 million.

“I can answer this question a million ways — frontward, backward, sideways, anything else,” Ryan said. “It’s my decision and I based it on a gut feeling or whatever. Everything it comes down to is, I believe it’s the best decision for our team. That’s the only factor that goes into these decisions.”


That has to be an awfully big feeling...

I wouldn't trade for him but if he was released I would give him a long hard look as a backup QB. Not that I don't like CD but I believe Tebow is the better footballplayer and if anybody could utilize his strenghts its SP.

You kids get off my lawn!

Re: Jets backup QB Tim Tebow will asked to be traded or released

He's a novelty at QB, I wouldn't want him at anything more than 3d string. He's athletic enough, he's already in the league, he's got a good attitude, I'd like to see him play another position.

Re: Jets backup QB Tim Tebow will asked to be traded or released

I don't think you can have an athletic QB and create a wildcat position for him anymore, the position and formation are dead and redundant

He'll end up somewhere but you can't sign him and say he'll be our wildcat QB, it doesn't work anymore since the dolphins ran it to death

I like him, but we really don't have a need for him

Re: Jets backup QB Tim Tebow will asked to be traded or released

I'd convert this guy to TE in a heart beat! He's so versatile,it's a shame no one has really given this guy the coaching he deserves. It's rare that you find raw talent with such a good attitude. Put this guy opposite of Jimmy and you open up all kinds of option and screen plays. I think he could give our offense another dimension. Should be able to negotiate a reasonable contract also. I say we get him while we can, but unfortunately we most likely won't.

Re: Jets backup QB Tim Tebow will asked to be traded or released

The Tebow factor.
I feel sorry for him because he believed and pushed the myth of his creation.
I am not calling Christ a creation. I am saying Tebow made a myth about his own creation, image as in Tebow had asked some actresses from Rock of Ages , the Broadway play to please remove the pictures of him with the actresses off their Twitter because of his image. The actresses were in costume. He posed with them backstage after he saw the play.Tim Tebow's people ask scantily clad Broadway actress to remove Twitter photo - NFL - Sporting News

Oh pul-eaze!!!
There is nothing wrong with having a strong faith. I do not dislike Tebow.
It is just that Tebow created this image and it overtook everything else like his career. Tebow got involved in making this image and not so much in his career.

Wherever he lands, and I hope it is not with the Saints, you have all that with him.

Russell Wilson, (Seahawks QB) is a Christian , married , reads his bible daily , but he is making it happen on the field.

Personal life on Russell Wilson

Wilson married his long-time girlfriend Ashton Meem on January 14, 2012 in Richmond, Virginia. They have two dogs: a beagle, Penny, and a dachshund, Cali. Wilson is a devout Christian, and often references his faith in press conferences and interviews. He also posts daily Bible verses on his Twitter feed.
Picture of Wilson and his pretty wife.

I feel sorry in a way for Marc Sanchez too. He made the image and believed the creation he made of superstar qb, celebrity.
Dating and making time to seek out and date Eva Longoria mand make the celeb NYC hotspots and the papers even though they have broken up and doing the NYC thing, celebrity entertainer things. What about on the field? The field career enables him to be the famous one? Not too much going there on the field.

Drew Brees, I have to be fair, is in a small market but he has taken on tons of endorsements. Has been on Letterman, Leno, and he and his wife on Ellen (N.O. girl), how many times and things. Being on Oprah trumps any other show. His book.
YEAH, but he made it happen on the field. On the field, his career there and is first and not endorsements and being the celeb and being on tv talk shows.

Someone posted Parcells ' qb rules.Bill Parcells' Quarterback Commandments

Tebow for one reason and Sanchez for the opposite needed to read those rules .

Re: Jets backup QB Tim Tebow will asked to be traded or released

The Jets really screwed this guy over. I have no idea why they even signed him. It's almost like it was for spite.

Maybe he can get signed and be a back up to a qb that he can actually learn from. Sanchez can show you what NOT to do, but that's about it. Either way, I wish Tebow the best. He was crazy fun to watch last year, and I still think about that playoff game versus the Steelers and smile. Good times.
