Found November 09, 2012 on NFL Trade Rumors:
PLAYERS: Tim TebowMark Sanchez
TEAMS: New York Jets
Mike Vorkunov of the Newark Star-Ledger writes that Jets senior personnel executive Terry Bradway was reportedly very high on Russell Wilson heading up into this year’s draft. In fact, Wilson was nicknamed “Russell Bradway” around the Jets organization. “We knew about him and liked him,” said Jets’ defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. “He’s proving he’s a complete quarterback. I think the league has been taken aback by how poised this rookie quarterback class is, and he’s no different. He does not look out of place out there.“ The Jets wound up trading for Tim Tebow, which essentially eliminated any chance of Wilson ending up in New York. Mark Sanchez has continued to struggle this season, but the team doesn’t appear to be ready or willing to turn to Tebow at this point in the season. Had Wilson been drafted, you would have to think that they would at least consider the idea of playing him at this point in the season.
