Welcome to the new New York Jets, where ok is good enough. Where accuracy is not that important. In the words of recently released linebacker Bart Scott, "Can't wait" for next season.
The Jets' new offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg touched on a few things in an interview on the Jets official website, and dropped this notable tidbit, brought to our attention by the folks at Pro Football Talk.

It's starting to be clear to the New York Jets that NO ONE in the NFL wants their quarterback Tim Tebow. Due to that, it's being reported by ESPN New York that the Jets [if all other options have failed to trade Tebow] will simply release Tebow."I don't see anyone trading for Tebow," said a NFL personnel director.
