According to a report from ESPN New York, Tim Tebow informed the Jets that he was no longer going to be a part of their wildcat package now that they have made the decision to turn to Greg McElroy as their starting quarterback. The Jets lost again on Sunday and while McElroy wasn’t exactly great, he was sacked a staggering 11 times in the game. Tebow was replaced by wide receiver Jeremy Kerley in the package since he actually played quarterback in high school. The Jets downplayed the situation following the game, but ESPN New York’s sources informed them that Tebow told the Jets specifically that he didn’t want to be used “situationally.” Clearly the relationship between the Jets organization and Tebow has been strained to the point where you have to wonder whether or not it’s even worth it to have him on their roster. The Jets are reportedly prepared to trade or release him in the coming weeks, but it’s hard to imagine him netting them any amount of value at this point in time. The Jacksonville Jaguars are reportedly very interested in acquiring Tebow, but they would be wise wait for him to be released and claim him off of waivers instead of including draft picks or a player in trade. We’ll have more regarding the topic in the near future. The post Tim Tebow Removes Himself From Jets’ Wildcat Package appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors.
