On Tuesday, the Jets began their roster purging by cutting ties with several veteran players, including linebackers Bart Scott and Calvin Pace.
They won’t resort to the same method with Tim Tebow…yet.
According to ESPNNewYork.com, the Jets are expected to “shop” the backup quarterback at this week’s Scouting Combine.
The NFL's trading period officially opens on March 12, so the Jets are simply putting out feelers, gauging potential interest around the league.
Gang Green shouldn’t be holding its collective breath, however.
No team is going to part with a draft pick for a player they know is on the outs, especially one with an immense amount of cult-like hoopla. As New York experienced first-hand, acquiring Tebow ultimately brings about more negatives than positives.
While another NFL club probably will kick the tires on Tebow, the Jets can all but forget about recouping their losses from last season’s monumental blunder.
