Backing away: Jets owner suggests he disliked Tim Tebow trade
New York City, NY, United States (4E Sports) – Former Broncos GM Ted Sundquist revealed that Jets owner Woody Johnson may have personaly disliked the Tim Tebow trade.
Sundquist got the impression that the deal for the star quarterback was “forced on” Johnson and president Neil Glat when he was interviewed for the Jets general manager post nine days ago.
Johnson shared that he eventually “jumped on board” with the Tebow idea, and seemed to blame former GM Mike Tannenbaum for the debacle.
Coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano failed to incorporate Tebow into the offensive scheme with any success. Tebow was used for just 73 offensive plays for the Jets (6-10) this season.
Tebow’s future in the NFL is unclear with the one team to express interest in Tebow last season, the Jacksonville Jaguars, no longer interested.
“I can’t imagine a scenario in which he’ll be a Jacksonville Jaguar — even if he’s released,” said new Jaguars GM David Caldwell.
