Damien Woody declared on ESPN's "SportsCenter" that his former team is contradicting itself by labeling Tim Tebow as a backup - while playing up his acquisition with a press conference.
Tebow will be officially announced with a conference at noon on Monday.
"How many times has a backup quarterback had a press conference?" the beefy offensive lineman said. "How many times have there been helicopters to meet a backup quarterback at the airport?
"The organization is saying he's the backup quarterback. Well, then why do you feel like you have to have a press conference? Why not just do a conference call and call it a day? It's a marketing ploy."
Several annonymous Jets have also taken issue with a backup quarterback having a press conference, the New York Post reported.

(Eds: APNewsNow. ) By RICHARD ROSENBLATT AP Sports Writer Tebow's a horse, too.
In fact, there are at least six thoroughbreds listed by The Jockey Club carrying the Tebow name.
They're all named for Tim Tebow, the New York Jets new backup quarterback who last season led Denver to the playoffs with an incredible string of comeback victories but was traded away...
The New York Jets transformed their indoor field house into a media center for the first time today to accommodate plague of media expected to meet the team's newest "backup" quarterback— Tim Tebow.
Tebow's press conference was expected to be his introduction to the rabid New York press corps but, instead of a media crush, it ended up sounding like a group massage...
The New York Jets held a press conference today for their incoming backup quarterback Tim Tebow. If you have been following this story at all, you know that the media swine at ESPN have approximately 3 issues with my opening sentence.
Lets dispel them all:
1. Tim Tebow. The media has darn near exploded in recent weeks bashing the Jets newest acquisition. Why pick up such...
Wherever Tim Tebow goes, the buzz will follow. As far as backup quarterbacks are concerned, Tebow is a solid option. From that standpoint, you can’t blame the Jets for bringing him in despite the media frenzy that goes along with it. If Mark Sanchez struggles or gets hurt, it will be nice to have a guy who has proven he can win games as an NFL starter waiting to be called upon...
Tim Tebow has officially joined the New York Jets after the trade talks were revived.
Mark Sanchez is a capable QB but has not been given the requisite weapons or aerial playcaller to really show off his talent.
Stuck with troublesome or aging wideouts for most of his career, his only consistent option has been Dustin Keller.
An overrated run game only helped to complicate matters...
There is NO offseason for the NFL. There were so many things that happened just in the past week or so: Peyton Manning finally settled on a team. Tim Tebow was traded to another team, and even had a press conference Monday.

What’s up RaiderNation? You know, Old Timer always says, laughter is the best medicine. I know most of us were pretty surprised to hear that Manning decided to sign with the Broncos; but did you know the real reason? Well, I was able to find out how it all went down, well, OK, so this [...]
The Jets held their introductory press conference for Tim Tebow on Monday (which may better be known for Tebow letting everybody know just how gosh darned excited he is). It was a bit of a curious spectacle and seemed a bit overzealous, given that Tebow is brought in to be a back-up rather that being given the starting gig right off the bat. That’s what Giants owner John Mara...
When it comes to the kitchen, I am a developing Italian quarterback. Mel Kiper Jr's scouting report indicates that a strength in my game is sandwiches. Throughout my college career, I combined the salty goodness of potato chips and the sweet sensation of PB&J with pinpoint accuracy and fluidity. I have united a locker room full of chicken nuggets and mac-and-cheese upon...
In the spirit of March Madness, ESPN has rolled out their NFL bracket for voting which player should be on the cover of the Madden 13 NFL video game. Each team was supposed to have a representative, but as the players were selected, two players were moved to new teams. QB Tim Tebow was going to represent the Denver Broncos, but is now a member of the New York Jets. WR...
