We all heard how excited Tim Tebow was to be with the Jets, following the announcement of the trade. Well, Gary Myers tried to dispel that earlier this week, with his article, quoting a league source, that gave the opinion that Tebow will seek a trade in the offseason if he is not the starter. The source was unnamed, of course, but just bringing up the idea had the topic on people’s lips since the article came out.

Well, the topic was presented to Tim at his press conference yesterday after practice, and Tim took no time in laughing it off:

That’s what these guys told me about a little bit ago. I find that pretty funny. It’s about as true as me living in Hoboken, I think. (laughter) I guess it’s just part of what you have to deal with, is rumors and stuff like that, I don’t know. All I can say is, I love being here as a Jet, I’m thankful for it and I want to be here for a long time. I guess you just have to put up with stuff like that.

Welcome to NY, Tim. You aren’t in Colorado anymore, that’s for sure. Anonymous sources offer up their opinions as often as people offer you coupons as you walk down the NYC streets. Like he said, it is something he had better get used to.
