Earlier today, two anonymous Jets players called Tebow “terrible” and stated that the wild cat offense won’t work with Tebow at the helm. Former Jets player Ladainian Tomlinson think he knows who those anonymous players were: Bart Scott and Antonio Cromartie.
According to Tomlinson, Cromartie is the one who called Tebow “terrible” and Scott is the player who said the wild cat “won’t work” with Tebow. When asked about the topic on Sirius XM radio Wednesday, Tomlinson had this to say:
“Cromartie has never had a problem putting his name on things. I don’t know, it’s just one of those things I feel like I am sure Rex Ryan has said something in the meetings about talking to the media about other guys,”
“Once you start talking to the media about teammates, Rex is going to address it, he’s not going to let it go. And so, now you have guys that don’t want to put your name on it because obviously Rex Ryan has said something about it.”
When asked about the acquisition of Tim Tebow, Tomlinson had this to say:
“They knew what they were getting in Tim Tebow. They weren’t getting a guy that could really compete for a starting quarterback’s job. They were getting a guy, a change of pace kind of guy, a Wildcat kind of guy. Why would (GM) Mike Tannenbaum make that move? If all the guys in the locker room knew what they were getting and Mike Tannenbaum did not know what he was getting in Tim Tebow.”
When asked about the comments during Wednesday’s press conference, Rex Ryan called the players actions “cowardly.”
