According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the New York Jets are not planning on releasing quarterback Tim Tebow before March.
Before last season, only two teams were interested in acquiring Tim Tebow’s services after he led the Denver Broncos to a playoff win. How many teams want him after his bench-riding season with the Jets? Probably zero. The Jacksonville Jaguars, one of the teams that showed interest in Tebow, are no longer interested. And we all know the Jets aren’t interested in bringing back the quarterback. But the Jets just don’t want to release Tebow.
They will, though, try to trade him and at least get something in return. The Jets will try to get a feel for his demand and attempt to get a mid to late-round draft pick. But even that is highly unlikely, and it may just be the end of Tebow’s career, at least at the quarterback position.
Tim Tebow finished the 16-game season playing only 73 offensive snaps, passing for 39 yards and rushing for 102 yards.
