Tim Tebow might be the No. 2 quarterback on the Jets' depth chart, but he is the only one considered one of the best players in football by his peers.
Tebow was ranked 95th on the NFL Network's list of the Top 100 players in the league, as voted by the players.
The Jets' starter, Mark Sanchez, is not on the list, however.
"It's a huge honor for me, and something I'm very thankful for," Tebow told NFL Network. "Because as a player when you put in all the hard work, you want to be respected by your teammates and your competitors and the people you go against every single week, and it truly is an honor for me to be on this list."
He added, "There are so many great players in the NFL. For just a few of them to respect me enough to put me on this list means a lot."
Tebow was not the only New York quarterback to make the grade.
The Giants' Eli Manning, whose absence from last year's list sparked outrage among Big Blue fans, made it this time.
The NFL has not said where Manning sits...
