New York Jets Look to Trade Mark Sanchez, Let Tim Tebow Go
Earlier this week, the New York Jets decided to start Greg McElroy on this weekend. The decision came after Mark Sanchez threw four interceptions and had a costly fumble late in the Monday night loss to the Tennessee Titans.
Meanwhile, McElroy jumped Tim Tebow, the backup quarterback. It's obvious that McElroy has shown more to the Jets than Tebow, McElroy came into a game earlier this year and threw a touchdown and won the game for the Jets the only week Tebow was inactive.
This season, it's been apparent the Jets have never been on Tebow time. Remember last year at this time, Tebow was captivating Denver Broncos and football fans with his fourth quarter and overtime heroics. Now, he cannot even get on the field and gets passed on the depth chart.
Today, ESPN New York reported the Jets will look to shop Mark Sanchez and let go Tim Tebow. The hardest part will be trading Sanchez, as he has an 8.25 million guarantee in 2013 in his contract. The Jets would have a 8.9 million cap charge
Tebow is signed through 2014, but told reporters on Wednesday that he is unsure the direction the Jets are going. Tebow has seen limited playing time, and often just in the Wildcat offense.
It's confusing to what the Jets are doing and what Rex Ryan is doing in New York. The decision makes you wonder what the plan ever was with Tebow in New York. At least Tebow isn't bashing the Jets in the media, and is being a class act with the decision of McElroy jumping him for the starting quarterbackjob.
