Tebowmania to the Jets? Source Says It’s Possible

Let the circus begin in New York.

Just hours after Peyton Manning was introduced as the Denver Broncos’ quarterback, Manish Mehta of the Daily News has learned that the Jets have serious interest in Tim Tebow. An anonymous Jets’ source was quoted Tuesday, “We are players in the Tim Tebow race.”

The story is that the Jets have had serious internal discussions about acquring the services of Tebow. He could be useful to the Jets, as their new offensive coordinator, Tony Sparano, did bring the “wildcat” offense to the NFL. He could create packages suited to Tebow’s skill set. But, the question becomes, is this a distraction that is worth it to the Jets? Will this become a problem for a team that just agreed to a contract extension with its much maligned starting quarterback?

Antonio Cromartie thinks it’s a bad idea.

“We don’t need Tebow,” cornerback Antonio Cromartie tweeted on Tuesday. “We sell out every home game let him go to Jacksonville Tampa or Miami.”

Mike Tannenbaum was his usual non-committal self saying that Tim Tebow is a player “under contract with another team”. Then he gave his standard answer of how happy they are with the players on their roster, but will look at opportunities when they come up.

I actually believe this is a good idea. Like him or not, Tim Tebow has shown that he knows how to win. The Jets quarterback roster consists of an inconsistent starter, and 2 unproven players behind him. The coaches can help Tebow with his fundamentals, and Tebow can help in the locker room. The creator of the wildcat can use Tebow’s skill set, and he can add a spark to the team when they need it.
