Tim Tebow has been released from the New York Jets according to Brian Costello on Twitter; does that mean Mark Sanchez is next?
It was pretty much suggested in the 2013 NFL Draft that either Sanchez or Tim Tebow would eventually be released after the Jets drafted Geno Smith, but now we have the first cut and another may soon be forthcoming.
For Jets fans, I really hope the new regime cleans everything up very fast and neatly.
For Tim Tebow, however, this may be a blessing in disguise.
The New York Jets' offense offered no opportunistic chances for Tim Tebow and nobody really knows why the Jets signed him in the first place.
In his very short stint on the field as a Jet, Tim Tebow completed 6 of 8 for a mere 39 yards with no TDs or INTs.
As a Bronco, Tim Tebow completed just 167 of the 353 passes thrown in two years but did register 12 TDs against 9 INTs.
Tim Tebow Facts!
- Tim Tebow led Denver over Pittsburgh in a Wild Card win 15 months ago
- The Montreal Alouettes own Tebow’s CFL rights which means the guy is sure to find a job elsewhere if interested.
- Tim Tebow was the first college player to win the Heisman trophy as a sophomore.
Ergo, with this release Tebow could find himself in a system that can actually use the guy even though it will more than likely NOT be in a starting fashion.
Of course, this will all hinge on whether or not orginizations want to chance the media frenzy that is sure to follow Tebow. Afterall it didn't do Denver any good, it helped New York become a pariah and dimished Tim Tebow as an NFL player.
Sometimes it just doesn't "pay" to be more famous than talented.
