The Bull Gator:
I was recently asked to provide some insight into the legend that is Tim Tebow. Alan Schechter of The JET Press wanted to know what I thought of Tebow as an NFL quarterback. As a fan of the New York Jets – Tebow’s new team (Seriously, you didn’t know that? Sheesh!) – Alan wanted to know what a Florida Gators fan thought of the former orange and blue star and his prospects to be a passer in the NFL for the long term.
I don’t consider myself a Tebow expert (but thank Alan for referring to me as such), but I am a Tebow fan. I wish him nothing but the best for his NFL career, but I do have my own concerns regarding his ability to be a starting quarterback in the league. I believe he can be a key contributor and someone I would want on my team, but he wouldn’t be my first choice to be my primary QB. For more on Tebow, check out my full thoughts at The JET Press.

IRVING, Texas -- New York Jets coach Rex Ryan revealed in February that his twin brother, Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, would be having Lap-Band surgery during the offseason.

NEW YORK—Jets first-round draft pick Quinton Coples obviously heard about the Jets wanting Bruce Irvin really bad. If they had their way it would have been Irvin facing the media at the Jets rookie mini-camp yesterday.
