Rex Ryan Claims Tim Tebow Still in the Mix For New York Jets Starting Job at Quarterback
Just days after talks started to heat up about the Orlando Predators of the Arena Football League being interested, it appears Tim Tebow may still have a chance of earning the starting job for the New York Jets next season.
Sure, this may seem like a long shot at the moment, but Jets head coach Rex Ryan recently discussed how Tebow was still in the mix to compete for the starting job as he was still on the roster at the moment. New York has seemed torn when it comes to what they should do with Tebow as they appeared to be trying to attempt a trade with the quarterback a few weeks ago, but no teams were expressing interest at the moment–mainly because they didn’t think he was worth surrendering any draft picks for.
It’s no surprise to see the Jets weighing all of their options at the moment considering Mark Sanchez has proven to be anything but reliable throughout his career as the former first-round pick enters his fifth season with the team. New York already signed David Garrard to provide Sanchez with a little competition at quarterback considering he has experience as a starter and if Tebow is thrown into the mix as well–it could be an interesting offseason for the Jets.
Of course, it wouldn’t come as a surprise either if Tebow ended up being the odd-man out once training camp came around considering the team also has to decide on Greg McElroy–so there’s no reason to make a big deal over this situation just yet.
