Tim Tebow says he has worked exclusively at quarterback as Mark Sanchez's backup during the early portion of the New York Jets' offseason program, and is ''just trying to learn the offense.''
Coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano have said Tebow, acquired from Denver in March, could have extensive playing time for the Jets in various roles, including running the team's wildcat-style package.
Tebow says Thursday that he hasn't been studying any other position - fullback or tight end - and adds that ''they haven't told me anything'' as far as whether he would play on special teams. The Jets will likely start installing those plans later in the offseason program.
Tebow adds that he and Sanchez have a ''great'' relationship on and off the field.

I don’t understand why Tebow is bothering to change his dog’s name from Bronco to Bronx (Ed. note: Bronco is a much better name for a dog if you ask me) other than the obvious, but if you’re going to go ahead and give your pet a new moniker, shouldn’t it have been Swampy or Cesspool or even Jersey, seeing that the...
Tebowmania is taking over New York, and not even canines are safe. In an attempt to fully embrace his new team, Tim Tebow is changing his dog’s name to “Bronx.” Tebow got the Rodesian Ridgeback in 2010, during his rookie season and named him “Bronco” after the franchise.
