There’s no question the New York Jets will host one of the most interesting quarterback battles to keep an eye on during training camp as Tim Tebow looks to give Mark Sanchez a run for his money with the starting role. Until then, it looks like the two quarterbacks will do whatever it takes to push each other to the max as they get ready for the upcoming 2012 season–even if it means working together at a special camp designed by Sanchez.
Tebow will join Sanchez at “Jets West” camp in Southern California along with Greg McElroy as the three quarterbacks will work together to prepare for the upcoming 2012 season. Sanchez has hosted the camp in each of the past two offseasons to help build the chemistry between the quarterbacks and wide receivers on the Jets and considering how much Tebow has been criticized for his quarterback mechanics–it’s good to hear the former Denver Broncos starter took his teammate up on the offer.
Despite helping the Broncos reach the playoffs in 2011, Tebow was far from impressive from a statistical standpoint at quarterback. Not only did he finish with only 1,729 passing yards and 12 touchdown passes in 14 games, but Tebow ranked last in the NFL when it came to completion percentage (46.5).
In other words–Tebow may need more than just “Jets West” camp if he has any chance of becoming the starting quarterback for the Jets next season.
