New York Jets coach Rex Ryan expects quarterback Tim Tebow to be far more involved than regular NFL backups, saying Sunday that the new recruit could play up to 20 snaps per game.
"Tim is going to be a major contributor to our football team," Ryan told the NFL Network.
"With the Wildcat specifically, the great thing is you don't know if we're going to run it one snap a game or 20 snaps a game -- you have no idea. Every week it could be different. That's some of the preparation problems he gives you."
The comments came a day before the Jets hold a massive press conference to introduce the former Broncos star and on the same day owner Woody Johnson defended the trade as a football-only move, insisting it was no publicity stunt.
Asked why the team decided to take the unusual step of holding a press conference for a backup quarterback, Johnson said, "It's basically in response to the news media that wants to follow it. It's an interesting...

(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...
The Jets didn't make a splash this offseason, they created a tidal wave of controversy and excitement. Tim Tebow's arrival in New York will keep the Jets in the headlines, but will it keep them in playoff contention?
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...
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan threw his weight behind Mark
Sanchez Tuesday. One day after the Jets introduced Tim Tebow as the
team's backup quarterback, Ryan expressed his support for Sanchez,
saying the quarterback would have received a contract extension
regardless of who the team acquired.
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...
