Interesting. Read on PFT last night there was no chance of that. But . . . you know free agency in the NFL. Almost as exciting as the games. =)

......I’m not a Jets fan, but this does not seem like a fit to me. The NY press would make Tebow’s life a living hell.

There will be now 2 Christians in NY, aside from Lin.

Looks like the Jets are interested. Good catch.

I believe the story is accurate, but there is no way Tebow would be a starter for the Jets. They just made a big financial commitment to Mark Sanchez after Peyton Manning narrowed his list of prospective teams down to a few and didn't include the Jets among them.

Most likely, the Jets would be looking to add Tebow to relieve Sanchez occasionally and run some unique, custom-designed plays out of a "Wildcat" formation.

Tebow isn’t a free agent. He’s still under contract with Denver. If the Jets want him they have to pay Denver’s asking price.

They are constructing a crucifix on Calvary Hill right now just in case...

Jets gave Sanchez a nice contract extension and just signed backup QB Drew Stanton. Tebow would be better off in Jax and be their starter. I wouldn’t mind seeing Tebow with the Jets but not while Sanchez is their #1.

Hope for his sake he is not traded to New York. Belongs in Jacksonville or Miami.

Seems to me that it`s a non starter, Tebow does not need to consider a backup position just yet, hopefully never.

In New York, most people think it’s cool to be anti-religious. Sunday mornings are for The New York Times. Their ad says so.

Or to relieve Sanchez after the fans murder him. I am a Jets fan and despise Sanchez. He makes Tebow look like Johnny Unitas.

I’d rather he go to the Packers or the Patriots. better weapons with teams absent of drama. give him a couple of years to mature work on the game and come in when he’s needed. I think he’s the ultimate “team” player. He always mentions “the team”, “we” , “our” , “he”, or “they” when talking about his on the field accomplishments... oh and just to get that little dig. He gets that little twinkle in his eye and starts off with, “I’d like to thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ”... bwahahahahhaha I love when the ESPN or network toadies look like someone farted when he says that.

It’s unlikely that Denver would release him outright before his contract runs out. They might try and move him before then but they won’t give him away. If he’s as great as a lot of the “experts” around here think he is someone will come calling.
