Everyone seems to think Tim Tebow has played his final game as a New York Jet. Don’t expect to hear that from the Jets coaching staff, though. “He’s on the roster,” head coach Rex Ryan told USA Today on Tuesday during the NFL Annual Meeting. “What we’re talking about is competition. And he’ll get a chance to compete. We’ll see how the offseason plays out. But right now, Tim is on our roster.” It’s interesting that Ryan continues to stress that Tebow is in contention for the starting spot, especially after he barely saw the field during Mark Sanchez‘s abomination of a season under center. The Jets have also picked up veteran David Garrard, who saw his last game action for Jacksonville in 2010, to compete with Sanchez, Tebow and third-year pro Greg McElroy. In 2012, the Jets ranked 30th in the NFL in completion percentage (55.2), passing yards (2891), interceptions (19) and passer rating (68.3). Ryan also called the prospect of bringing in the recently released Kevin Kolb “something we’ll look into.”
