According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, prior to the New York Jets releasing Tim Tebow, there were some teams that were interested in trading for him. The only way that was going to happen though, was if he was willing to play tight end, rather than a quarterback.
Jets had granted Tim Tebow permission this off-season to seek a trade. More than one team asked if were willing to play TE, but he was not.

If Tebow is going to continue to be stubborn and not want to change positions, his NFL career will be over very soon. And he may not care. Let’s face it, he can go around preaching at various church’s for the rest of his life and make enough money to live off of.

NEW YORK'S NOT MY HOME
After one tumultuous season, the Tim Tebow Experiment by the New York Jets has come to an end, with the team releasing the quarterback early on Monday morning.
Since the Jets released Tim Tebow yesterday, there's been some talk around the NFL community that another team may be willing to pick up Tebow if he's willing to play a different position such as fullback or tight end. Now, it seems, the Jets never considered changing his position, viewing him as a quarterback to till the end. On "Mike and Mike in the Morning,"...
According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, a source told him that Jets quarterback Tim Tebow is “probably gone” soon. I know the Jets just might be naive enough to think they can still trade Tebow, but they need to face reality that they won’t be able to and stop wasting his time as well as their own and just get rid of him.

According to Darren Rovell of ESPN, Tim Tebow is opening up a restaurant down in Jacksonville, Florida.

It looks like Tebow has new job lined up outside of the NFL since he was just released by the Jets.

Tim Tebow was officially released by the New York Jets. Where do you think he is headed now? Jacksonville? Canada? It's time to Settle It.
ESPN shed thousands of collective tears when the New York Jets released their personal protector on the punt team Monday. Some fans laughed. Others thanked greater powers (why, I don’t know). Some NFL general managers confirmed publicly that their team had no interest in the newly-waived former quarterback. The ears of some GMs perked up. Lions GM Martin...
Former Jets quarterback Tim Tebow through waivers unclaimed today and is now officially a free agent. He can sign with any team at any time.
Just because no teams put in a claim for Tebow doesn’t mean no one is interested. Now that he’s a free agent, we’ll find out if anyone really wants to really sign him.

Today marks the official end of Tim Tebow’s run in New York. Tebow played 70
offensive snaps last season while making $4 million in total salary (or about $57 grand per snap), getting passed over for Greg Mcelroy after Mark Sanchez struggled late in the year. When the Jets made that call, they had no shot at the playoffs, several major contributors were injured (see: Santonio Holmes...
So it begins.
ESPN and other media outlets report that the New York Jets released little-used quarterback Tim Tebow this morning, leaving the team with five quarterbacks on the roster.
New York's little brother team might have cut less heralded Greg McElroy, Matt Simms, or, um. Mark Sanchez. Instead they excised the most useless outsider in NFL history.
Thanks to the media, Tim Tebow is crammed down the publics throats every single chance they can get. The New York Jets releasing Tim Tebow was given more publicity on ESPN than Jason Collins coming out as the first active gay athlete in a major sport, which is pathetic given Tebow’s NFL career. Mandatory.com feels similarly about the Tim Tebow circus and made a hilarious LinkedIn...
Thankfully, we haven't heard too much noise lately from the Bristol underworld kingdom of First Take. Tim Tebow's NFL career being on life support and the brilliant play of LeBron James have worked against two of the show's long-standing pillars - that Tebow is a winner and James is not. Instead of building a show on a solid foundation of insight and analysis, ESPN...
April 29th, 2013 will be remembered as an important day in American pro sports as Jason Collins came out in a Sports Illustrated exclusive as the first active gay athlete in the four major sports.
It will not be remembered as the day the New York Jets replaced Tim Tebow or the day after the 8th seeded Los Angeles Lakers were swept from the NBA Playoffs.
And yet, if you watched...
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Denver Broncos are signing OLB Shaun Phillips.
Phillips, 31, receives a one-year contract for Denver and figures to compete for the team’s starting defensive ends spot across from Von Miller. Phillips has spent his entire nine-year career in San Diego, but apparently was no longer a part of the team’s future plans. It’s worth noting...
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN on Twitter, free agent tackle Winston Justice is visiting with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday and is also scheduled to visit with the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday.
The Steelers did not draft an offensive lineman during the 2013 NFL draft, and even though they signed a handful of undrafted free agents afterwards, they still have question marks...
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Jacksonville Jaguars' wide receiver Justin Blackmon will be suspended for the first four games of the 2013 NFL Season. The reason currently given is "violation of the leagues substance abuse policy".If you remember, Blackmon was arrested last year for a DUI. Then he felt he wasn't happy with the contract he was offered...
