Jets owner Woody Johnson says backup quarterback Tim Tebow will ''be with us for three years,'' and also backs struggling starter Mark Sanchez.
Johnson tells CNBC on Wednesday that despite some speculation that the Jets could try to trade Tebow after this season, his first in New York, the team will ''absolutely'' keep him for the duration of his contract.
Johnson adds that he and coach Rex Ryan have not discussed making a quarterback change, saying that Sanchez ''played great'' in a 23-17 loss to Houston on Monday night. The Jets owner would not say the team would never make a switch because ''never is a long, long time period,'' but adds that he sees ''the same things in Mark Sanchez that I saw when I first met him.''

Lawrence Taylor made an appearance on Wednesday's Inside the NFL and he had some unique advice for Jets QB Tim Tebow on how to make it in The Big Apple.
Via Larry Brown Sports: Tim Tebow stoked some religious fires before the “Monday Night Football” game between the Jets and Texans by recognizing that this was the 666th edition of the program.
Last night's Texans-Jets game wasn't just an opportunity for the country to see the NFL's best team in the national spotlight. (That would be the Texans in case you were wondering.) No. Naturally, with the New York Jets involved, it was an opportunity to revisit TebowMania.
Shockingly, ESPN was realtively reserved yesterday compared to their summer when SportsCenter...
The New York Jets will take on the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football, and they will do so with Mark Sanchez as the starting quarterback. How much longer he holds that position atop the Jets’ depth chart remains to be seen.
New York signed Sanchez to a ridiculous contract extension this offseason, one in which they may be regretting right now. He has played rather poorly to...
If you happen to enjoy watching the Jets get annihilated so much that you will listen through three hours of Tebow talk to get it, then I suppose this evening will be a celebration for you. Otherwise, it’s really a zero-sum contest for neutral observers. The Texans winning a huge boring blowout is the best possible outcome. Anything less than that and the narrative will be flooded...
After Arizona’s loss on Thursday night, the Texans, along with the Falcons, are one of the two undefeated teams left in the NFL.
Tonight, they take on the 2-2 Jets, who are coming into this game after a 34-0 loss to San Francisco last week.
The calls for Tim Tebow will surely be heard tonight if Mark Sanchez struggles.
Houston and New York square off tonight on Monday Night Football...
Mark Sanchez had his moments - good and bad - for the Jets. Tim Tebow, too.
But some of the Jets' biggest flaws were on full display in their 23-17 loss to the Houston Texans. They couldn't run the ball, the defense couldn't stop the run and Tebow still isn't running on the field much.
Rex Ryan says the Jets need to get their running game going for the offense to...
At this point the Jets have no answers on offense at all. Tebow or Sanchez? Where’s first round pick from a few years ago in Shonne Greene. Santonio Holmes was their best offensive weapon and he’s done for the season. I think Antonio Cromartie was right when he said he was the second best receiver on the team. He beat Johnathan Joseph badly on a stop and go route on Monday...
If you don't play Fantasy Football, at least admire this photo of a cute puppy in Tim Tebow's arms.
What isn’t there to say that’s already been said about this victory for the Colts? Indianapolis played on emotion and had the heart of a champion to get the “W.”
With what looked like a decent Monday Night Football match up on paper when the 2012 NFL schedule was first released, the Texans at the Jets now looks like it could see the mercy rule invoked. With the Texans on the rise, consistently beating teams by double digits, the flailing Jets, who were embarrassed at home last week by a 34-0 thrashing, look to be heading in the opposite direction...
The New York Jets are the definition of dysfunction, and the circus is only getting better as time moves forward.
In an interview on CNBC, Woody Johnson made a plethora of comical remarks that should raise our eyebrows, but more specifically, he said of the possibility of hanging on to Tim Tebow, "He's going to be with us for three years."
