Found April 30, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
PLAYERS: Tim Tebow
TEAMS: New York Jets
New York Jets general manager John Idzik was a guest on Mike and Mike in the Morning and was asked if they had thought about asking Tim Tebow to play another position. “No, we didn’t,” Idzik said, per ProFootballTalk.com. “Tim, while I was here, he was slated as a quarterback.” Of course the Jets didn’t think about it because all they wanted to do was get rid of Tebow after realizing that bringing him in last year was a mistake.   Need NFL Tickets?

Jets Release Tim Tebow

In a move that surprised no one, the Jets released Tim Tebow. So ends one of the most bizarre moments in Jets history. As many of you know I haven’t been shy about saying that getting Tebow was a mistake and while so many thought the Jets were getting a winner, it was clear that it rattled Mark Sanchez and that Tebow turned out to be anything but what his press clippings said he...

Tim Tebow is first casualty of Geno Smith to Jets

  So it begins. ESPN and other media outlets report that the New York Jets released little-used quarterback Tim Tebow this morning, leaving the team with five quarterbacks on the roster. New York's little brother team might have cut less heralded Greg McElroy, Matt Simms, or, um. Mark Sanchez. Instead they excised the most useless outsider in NFL history. None...

Klein should learn from the Tebow QB experiment

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Heres the thing that doesnt make a shred of sense: Collin Klein is a smart guy. Surely, hes watched enough of Tim Tebow to know that this is not the path that lands you at Candy Castle in the end. Surely, hes seen enough NFL games to know that quarterbacks whove been trained to run first, run second, and throw third usually wind up getting their knees bent like...

First Take named one of the 20 worst shows on television

Thankfully, we haven't heard too much noise lately from the Bristol underworld kingdom of First Take.  Tim Tebow's NFL career being on life support and the brilliant play of LeBron James have worked against two of the show's long-standing pillars - that Tebow is a winner and James is not.  Instead of building a show on a solid foundation of insight and analysis, ESPN...

Bob Ley has some wise words for his employer

April 29th, 2013 will be remembered as an important day in American pro sports as Jason Collins came out in a Sports Illustrated exclusive as the first active gay athlete in the four major sports.
