Since being drafted in 2009, Mark Sanchez has developed something of a tradition. Each offseason the Jets quarterback gathers up several of his teammates, flies them out to southern California, and puts the group up at fancy accommodations, footing nearly all of the costs.
While it sounds like a nice, luxurious getaway (and an extremely nice gesture), the real basis for the trip is work. In what he has dubbed "Jets West," Sanchez organized a passing camp where he and his teammates run plays, practice routes, and try to cook up as much chemistry before the rigors of training camp begin.
This year, as we all know, Sanchez has a new playmate and fellow quarterback to show the ropes.
According to the New York Daily News, Tim Tebow has accepted Sanchez's invitation and will join his teammates in sunny SoCal a few weeks from now.
Third-string quarterback Greg McElroy, who also will attend, views the voluntary camp as a unique and important bonding tool.
