PLAYERS: Tim Tebow
TEAMS: New York Jets
As you might've heard, the Jets are virtually certain to release Tim Tebow, but not before exhausting all trade opportunities. If they seem desperate to unload their personal punt protector ... well, that's because they are. Really, really desperate. As Mike Klis of the Denver Post writes, the Jets would like something -- anything -- in return for Tebow.

  • "Desperate to unload" whut? What IS UP with those Jets? They didn't even give Tim a chance to play at the end of LAST season.

    We LOVE you Tim! God bless you wherever you land.
    "Desperate to unload" indeed. Maybe, the Jets should UNLOAD the coach Rex Ryan.

Tim Tebow First To Arrive At Jets Offseason Workouts

As a NFL football player I have little to no opinion regarding Tim Tebow, since I didn’t see him play that much last season. As a person, I don’t see any fault in the young man searching for his position with the big boys. However I do believe he made an ill-advised decision in joining the New York Jets. Maybe the big stage led him to New York. Or maybe watching current starting...
