The Other Paper:
While Tim Tebow was only an extra in that classic movie comedy, That Wildcat Season, one Hollywood producer thinks the New York Jets quarterback has what it takes to be a star.
According to TMZ, faith-based indie producer David Dginguerian wants the Christian NFL player to star in his next project.
Dginguerian, the man behind the religious 2012 film "Crossroad," wrote in a letter to Tebow, "You are an inspiration to so many on the field and off and I am certain that your passion will also come through in films."
Charlton Heston — wherever you are — look out.
It is unclear what the project is specifically about or how much Tebow will be paid for the role, but it's a good possibility that he might be available next fall.

THE PASSION OF THE TIM?
New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow has been offered a role in a faith-based movie by the film's executive producer via a letter to his agents.
The 2013 NFL Draft is a little less than one month away. Currently, the New York Jets have the 9th overall pick and then a pick in every round following. Obviously that could be subject to change if Darrelle Revis is traded in the next few weeks. There has rarely been a Jets off-season so well shrouded in radio silence than the current one being led by new GM John Idzik. A newly...
Believe it or not Tebow is still a member of the Jets. At least for right now they have no plans on releasing or trading him, but no matter what they say, he isn’t in the mix to be the starting quarterback.
He has a lot of post career options, he will make a ton of money (already has) from speaking engagements, but maybe he can make a few more dollars acting.
Producer David Dginguerian...
It was a season to forget for both Tim Tebow and the New York Jets. Now it seems as if their unhappy marriage will be over sooner rather than later.

If the whole NFL quarterback thing doesn’t work out for Tim Tebow, he has an offer for a second career.
The Jets quarterback has been offered a starring role in a faith-based film by executive producer David Dginguerian. Dginguerian produced the 2012 religious film Crossroad (not to be confused with Crossroads, the 2002 film starring Britney Spears).

Free-agent outside linebacker Bryan Thomas was the longest-tenured New York Jets player last season, having appeared in 157 games over 11 seasons.
Yet, Thomas now 33 is contemplating retirement after doctors found a torn tendon in his shoulder when they operated on a pectoral muscle injury six weeks ago. As Thomas explained to the New York Daily News:
“I haven’t even...
The Jets may start stockpiling quarterbacks like Bill Belichick likes to do with tight ends.
New York came away impressed after spending private time with Geno Smith at the West Virginia pro day, according to ESPN.com. Senior personnel executive Terry Bradway and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg were on hand to watch and talk to Smith in Morgantown, W. Va.

It’s appearing more and more likely that the Patriots will only have to face Darrelle Revis once this year.
The Jets cornerback is expected to be traded to the Buccaneers for two “high draft choices,” according to Peter King of Sports Illustrated. New England plays the Bucs at Tampa Bay next season.
The Jets owe Revis $6 million in 2013. Trading Revis won’t save them any...
