RUMOR: Tebow requesting trade/release after season is over

  • That's about as obvious as it gets. Jets are going to release him whether he wants to or not, and I'm sure he 100% agrees.

  • He's probably a good guy and teammate, but his skill set just isn't in high demand in the NFL. His only hope is to get with a coach that can be more creative than running him into the line of scrimmage five times a game, but even then I've always hated splitting QB reps.

    The Jets...man, they are a mess. Did they have no idea it was a terrible idea from the beginning?

  • I believe their owner is the guy who decided to bring him in.
    I doubt the head coach ever made that decision.
    The coaching staff watching him in practice ... and they were even more shocked he can't play as a QB.
    Bring him in as a punt returner? or a Tight-end. But can he even block? Can he run routes?
    Tebow is a waste, unless the coaching staff commits to him 100%.

  • Got to be the Jags! Only team that makes sense. Now if he wants to play TE or FB then maybe other teams take advantage of it. I could see good ol' Bill B taking advantage of this and bringing him to the Pats too. They'd probably set him up as RB or something. He just can't play QB in this league. Talented guy, not a good QB.

  • Whew.....I was worried you were gonna suggest the Seahawks trade for him. I actually like Tebow as a person, but I really don't want him on our football team.

  • I still find it hard to believe that people believe he is a viable option long term at the qb position. Teach him how to block and make him a TE and we could have something. Just because someone played qb in college doesn't mean they should do so in the NFL. You can have a good career at another position if you put your mind to it. Michael Robinson is a perfect example. He played QB in college, came into the NFL to be a RB and ended up being a pro bowl FB. Tebow has skills, they just don't include throwing the ball well.

    The way the Jets are using him is just bad bad bad. You can't switch quarterbacks several times in each drive. It is not a formula that will work in the NFL.

    You know, we really don't need him, as we have Robinson, who I assume would be our "third" quarterback since we don't carry one. But other than that, he'd actually be a great addition as a backup quarterback to Wilson. He's got the run option that we could feed him all day and not change our offence much at all in the case Wilson went down. I wouldn't want to use him like the Jets did at the beginning of the year, because they used him horribly, but if he did see the field, putting him in for five plays - whether we used him or not - the defense would assume we would, and would compensate for it. Using him as a blocker in those cases would be a great "trick" play, even if it wasn't what's traditionally known as a trick play. Turning him into a running back would actually be the smarter option, and I could see him doing it for a guy like Pete Carroll, but it probably won't happen. What can I say? I love a running back who can legitimately throw the ball, because it adds an extra layer of threat.

    A smart team with a mobile quarterback will pick him up as the backup and have a solid enough backup quarterback. Although the skill sets are different, I see him as a T-Jack sort of guy. Some use on the team, but not the guy you want to be first string quarterback if you have a better choice.

  • It's about this time when Michael Robinson should call Tebow up and tell him, "Dude, yeah, stop with the QB thing. You're a fullback. I know."

  • If Tebow was serious about being a QB in this league he'd quit adding muscle and work on his god awful throwing motion. Until he does that he'll never be a viable QB in this league, and any coach who is smart wouldn't want Tebow anywhere near his team if they have the potential for QB controversy. Tebow isn't the answer to anybodies QB problem.

  • I hate talking about this guy as he is the most over hyped person in the history of the planet, but I can't help but think he would be phenomenal as an H-back TE. He's got the ideal build and athleticism for it. I don't know if he can catch or not, but even if he was semi-consistent with his hands he'd be an asset. You could get real creative with a guy like that on the field.

  • Wow. The Jets made Mark Sanchez a worse QB, I can't imagine how bad Tebow is now.

  • Tebow sells Jerseys, which makes plenty of ca$$ for the NFL Teams ...
    They need to keep him around for a while, just for the $$$ and the ratings ... and the controversies.
    They just need to find a team, with the cult following (somewhere in the South, preferably) to join his cult.
    Jacksonville is one place.
    Tennessee would be another one. (Jake Locker doesn't have it)
    Not sure if the Bills and Buffalo can embrace him ...

    Well, if that's the case it's really too bad. Dude is a great athleate and could potentially have a long and even productive career with a position change, but people really need to stop the Tebowmania side show and stop telling him he's a quarterback.

  • Tebow, pull your head out buddy. Sign with Seattle, and learn from Rob how to play your new spot. Tebow could easily be a 6'4 255lbs fullback with decent speed and make a good living for a 8-10 years. Or stay a QB and be out of the NFL in 1-2 years.

    Well, that rules out Tebow.

    I wonder if he had less love from fans he would have ever switched from QB to FB? Just the fans loved him so much, that he must be a "star" and stay at QB.
