Quarterback Drew Stanton wants out of New York after his backup job was promised to Tim Tebow.
The Jets signed Stanton last week to a one-year, $1.25 million contract to be Mark Sanchez's backup, but on Wednesday the team traded for Tebow and announced he would serve as the No. 2 signal caller.
A source told the New York Post that Stanton is extremely upset and will probably ask to be released or traded.
Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum said the team might keep four quarterbacks (Sanchez, Tebow, Stanton and Greg McElroy). Tannenbaum said they didn't anticipate Tebow being available when they made the move for Stanton.
"When we signed Drew, obviously this was not contemplated in that decision," Tannenbaum said Wednesday night. "When you get an unexpected opportunity to add a player like Tim, you have to take advantage of that."
Tebow, who led the Broncos on a surprise run to the AFC West title last season, suddenly became available when Peyton Manning signed with Denver on Tuesday.
