Via NFL Trade Rumors:
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News confirms that New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow is likely to request a trade or to be released if Greg McElroy does in fact start the final two games of the season.
Mehta adds that the Jets could release Tebow and only incur a “minimal” cap hit for doing so. Tebow’s set to make $2.6 million next season, so it seems likely that they’ll at least consider the idea of cutting him loose.
Jeff Darlington of NFL.com reports that a source close to Tebow mentioned that it’s ”highly unlikely” that he would be willing to sit behind McElroy for the remainder of the season now that the team has decided to bench Mark Sanchez.
Darlington adds that New York could always elect to release Tebow rather than continue to field questions about his playing time.
According a Broncos source, the Jets, Jaguars and Rams all had interest in acquiring Tebow during the offseason, so there’s at least a chance he could catch on with one of those teams.
There’s still a belief around the league that Tebow is not capable of playing the position in the NFL, and what has transpired this season isn’t going to help his chances of finding a new opportunity, even though he’s from the Jacksonville area.

Tim Tebow had been the No. 2 quarterback on the depth chart pretty much the...
