of the New York Daily News
provided us with a report from a source who states that Tebow will look to leave the Jets if he’s still working with the snd team in 2013. The unnamed source reportedly told Myers, “I think he will be a good soldier.”
“At the end of the year, I think he will express those concerns to the Jets. He will want to move on. The one thing about Tebow is he is the quintessential team player. He would never do anything that is going to undermine the team. But he’s football-aholic. It’s in his blood.
“Absolutely he will talk to the Jets or we will have misevaluated his competitive nature. There comes a point, where they get it and realize this is who I am and just accept that role. Tebow is not there yet.”
I’m in no position to accuse Mr. Myers of lying or trolling for attention. Myers says he has a source and he went with it.
The idea that Tebow is in a position to demand a trade is ludicrous. More than playing, Tebow cares about his image and how he’s perceived. I find it hard to imagine Tebow surviving a second trade in less than two years unscathe reputation wise.Mike Freeman
of CBS Sports addressed the situation, via his Twitter page, and stated that someone from the Tebow camp trashed this story.
So Tebow is a competitor and did not go to New York to sit or be an afterthought. I just don’t see Tebow becoming a problem either.Glenn Erby is a NFL writer for FootBasket. He also owns the NFL blog, Tha Cover 2. You can read more about him over there. Follow him on Twitter @thacover2.

I know what you’re thinking (WTF), there is no way the New York Jets will start Tim Tebow this Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. But here is why it would be smart for the Jets to split the time between Sanchez and Tebow.
The Bills are not the Steelers: The media has been over-exaggerating Sanchez’s performance against the Bills. Sanchez has been consistently praised for...
