Greg McElroy Denies That Jets Were Circus This Year, Supports Tony Sparano After Ouster

You know a team is in bad shape when its third-string quarterback is taking potshots. Luckily, that’s not the case — this year.

Jets reportedly planned to make Tim Tebow a running back

Tim Tebow and the New York Jets are parting ways after what developed into a disappointing season for both parties.
