According to The Wichita Eagle, Tebow’s jet had stopped at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport to refuel and his representative asked Wichita State basketball coach Gregg Marshall whether Tebow could address the team. Tebow then stepped inside the team bus and delivered a message to the players.
Tebow referenced a speech he gave to his Florida teammates during halftime of the 2009 BCS National Championship Game, which the Gators won 24-14 over Oklahoma. He encouraged the Shockers to embrace the moment and “leave nothing on the court.”

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:

The Jets may start stockpiling quarterbacks like Bill Belichick likes to do with tight ends.
