New York Jets on Tim Tebow: “Looking At All Possibilites”

The New York Jets don’t know what to do with Tim Tebow. If they don’t know what to do with Darrelle Revis, than could you really expect them to figure out how to get out of the Tebowmania circus?

“We’ll see what the offseason (brings),” Jets owner Woody Johnson said Sunday.

But the offseason hasn’t brought anything in regards to Tim Tebow. The Jets seem to be clinging to hope that they can trade Tebow when that market is most likely non-existant. It would take a team desperate for a quarterback that didn’t address that need in the draft possibly to get it done.

But according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily news, Woody Johnson says they’re exploring all possibilities. The only possibility though seems obvious, release him.

Rex Ryan doesn’t trust Tim Tebow to motivate or push Mark Sanchez. They just brought in David Garrard to fill that role and possibly compete for the starting job.

Tebow is set to earn $2.6 million this year, and the Jets can’t afford to keep him around. The only reason I think they hold on to him through April is to see if a trade market emerges after the draft.

    they should just get rid of him…they thought they could bring him in and he would be able to do lots of things on the football field. The reality is that he can’t really do anything good on the field (or off the field, in my opinion). Let’s make sure Tebow leaves the NFL and we can pretend the whole thing never happened.

      Cutting him seems like the only option. Some CFL or AFL team will give him a shot.
