With Rex Ryan‘s decision to start Greg McElroy for the New York Jets against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, it was only a matter of time before Tim Tebow expressed his frustration, considering he’s been waiting for a chance to start all season as the No. 2 quarterback behind Mark Sanchez. Now, it appears Tebow is so frustrated that he’s willing to seek a trade or a release if McElroy starts the final two games of the regular season–which shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.
If one thing has been clear about the Jets this season, it’s been that Ryan wasn’t that big fan of Tebow, considering how little he used him in the offense. For a player that many expected to play a key role in New York’s offense after he was acquired from the Denver Broncos, Tebow has thrown for just 39 passing yards all season while recording 102 rushing yards–which is absolutely ridiculous compared to the type of production he had last year.
At this rate, moving on from the Jets seems like the best choice for Tebow this offseason, but whether or not he’ll receive a chance for a starting job at first is a different story. There are numerous teams that will most likely consider bringing on another quarterback during the offseason like the Kansas City Chiefs or the Jacksonville Jaguars–so Tebow could easily draw some interest and put himself in the position to fight for a starting job.
Otherwise–2013 could turn out to be similar to 2012 for the former first-round pick where he receives little-to-no playing time for whatever team he ends up on.
