According to the New York Daily News, Tim Tebow will request a trade or release at the end of the season. The Daily News claims to have sources indicating the backup QB wants out:
The Daily News has learned that Tebow, who captivated the NFL last season with his miracle playoff run in Denver, will request to be traded or released after the season assuming that McElroy starts the final two games. Tebow’s desire to part ways with a franchise that never gave him a chance came to a head after McElroy, who has seven career passes on his NFL resume, leapfrogged him, according to a source.
You can’t blame Tebow here. He wants to start at QB in the NFL… and he clearly won’t get the shot in NY.
I can only come up with one explanation as to how the Jets brass has used Tebow this year. They signed him for headlines and media attention… and to sell tickets. Once they got him into training camp, they realized how crappy he is (sorry Skip Bayless). The Jets realize that they don’t want Tebow to be any part of the future of the QB position here. They are dead afraid of media pressure if they went to Tebow and he lead them to a playoff birth by winning the remaining games. This can be the only logical reason why they didn’t put him in Monday night after Sanchez struggled and they were happy to go to McElroy previously.
