Report: Tebow wants to leave Jets
New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow reportedly will request to be traded or released after the season.
The move is expected if backup quarterback Greg McElroy starts the final two games of the season for the Jets, the New York Daily News reported Tuesday, citing sources.
McElroy, a second year pro, was given the start for this Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers after Mark Sanchez committed five turnovers in a 14-10 loss at the Tennessee Titans on Monday night.
Tebow was acquired in an off-season trade with the Denver Broncos after they signed quarterback Peyton Manning. The Jets said at the time they planned to make Tebow an integral part of the offense, but he has played sparingly this season behind incumbent Sanchez, who started the first 14 games.Trade Bucket: Hidden Content

I hope he goes to a team that could use him. The jags are a serious potential future team and they could use him the way he needs to be used.

I somewhat feel bad for the guy. Sanchez has stunk it up and Rex Ryan just let's him start game after game. If McElroy struggles in the next game, I can see Tebow coming in which will more than likely be an audition for a new team next year.

I don't feel bad for him, he makes millions of dollars and isn't even good at being a QB.
Someone thinks too highly of himself....

why would the jets bring him in when their idea of using him successfully is a direct snap and having him run head first into the line. they really havent even let him play even when sanchez is turning the ball over every series they barely put him in. atleast give the guy a chance.

Its more politics than anything. They payed sanchez a bunch of money and the only way they can have a legitimate reason to get rid of him is to keep using him and let him dig his own hole. Now that they benched him and the season is over it makes more sense to start the young guy and see what he can do instead of starting tebow. They commited to sanchez, so as bad as it sounds they have to stick with him till they have uncontested reason not to. Unfortunately it cost them the season. They put themselves in this hole when they extended sanchezs contract. They should have never done that. No one would trade for him with the money he is making now.

I don't feel sorry for him in the sense of he's not living comfortably, but it's got to be tough to get a chance to play last season and have success and then get traded to the Jets who have no clue about using him. Plus the fact that they are going with McElroy is another kick to the gut. The Jets trading for him has to be one of the most confusing trades of late. It makes zero sense no more so than it did at the time they got him right after they gave sanchez a huge contract. The Jets are a mess. I'm not a big tebow fan but he had some great games last season. I'd love to see him go somewhere that will at least allow him to compete for the QB job.
