Tebow to join Sanchez’s “Jets West” camp

Between the end of Organized Team Activities and the start of training camp, Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez will once again host teammates at a series of player-organized workouts that he calls the “Jets West” camp. And this year’s attendees will include the player who could take Sanchez’s job.

Tim Tebow told the New York Daily News that he will attend the “Jets West” camp in Southern California in a few weeks.

Sanchez started the offseason camp with offensive skill position players in 2010, and a number of players credited the extra work and team-building as a reason for the Jets’ success. When the lockout canceled minicamps and OTAs last season, Sanchez extended his “Jets West” work, although the extra work and team-building did not carry over to another successful season.

Other players who told the New York Daily News they will attend include third-string quarterback Greg McElroy, running backs Shonn Greene, Joe McKnight and John Conner; wide receivers Jeremy Kerley, Patrick Turner and Scotty McKnight; and tight ends Dustin Keller, Jeff Cumberland and Josh Baker. Receiver Stephen Hill and running back Bilal Powell haven’t committed yet, while rookie running back Terrance Ganaway said he will skip it to spend time with his wife.

    One WR noticeably not attending. Shocking.

    Too much distraction already.

    Wheres Santonio “Wake-n-Bake” Holmes?!?

    What jests success? Their offense is offensive!

    It’s kinda funny how people will rip on the Jets no matter what. Look, they deserve it 99% of the time, but Sanchez is trying to build some team chemistry. I give him credit for doing the extra work every year, and taking the high road with Tebow. I know you all sit behind your keyboards and say you’d do the same thing, but I can’t honestly say if I’d invite the most popular guy in the league, the guy whose name I will hear chanted my first incomplete pass, to my house and work out facilities to practice with me.

    Bring our friends in close and your enemies and your enemies even closer! Or is it better to keep snakes out of the tent?

    charlutes, what’s the the distraction, honestly now?

    anygivenwed, so all that work put in months before between them weren’t good enough? just because he’s not there doesn’t mean he’s scum. it’s the off season still, not training camp

    Sweet…The “Terminator” will be there!

    Doesn’t look like mark and santonio are “close like starsky and hutch?”

  10. azwildcats96 says: Jun 4, 2012 8:07 AM

    lol John Conner wasn’t the Terminator

  11. p01ntman says: Jun 4, 2012 8:08 AM

    Hmmm any one else notice Sanchez has on a arm ban with the plays on it and Tebow does not?

  12. spellingcops says: Jun 4, 2012 8:26 AM

    Mark Sanchez is nothing more than a glorified cheerleader/pep rally organizer.

  13. vincentbojackson says: Jun 4, 2012 8:27 AM

    Jets West will become Jets South next year after Tebow moves the operation near his home in St. Augustine Florida. I’m sure Sanchez will be invited.

  14. basauder says: Jun 4, 2012 8:28 AM

    That’s because you typically put your arm band on your non-throwing arm. Tebow is a lefty so it is on his other arm.

    No, dude your right … not attending a voluntary work-out doesn’t make Holmes a scum.

    From Wikipedia:

    May 27, 2006: arrested for disorderly conduct.

    October 23, 2008: arrested for possession

    On March 24, 2010, Anshonae Mills filed a lawsuit against Holmes over a March 7 incident in which she alleges Holmes threw a glass at her in an Orlando nightclub, resulting in a cut above her eye. Initially, Mills did not pursue charges, claiming Holmes and the police intimidated her into it, but the case has been reopened. Subsequently, after a Twitter comment criticizing the nightclub incident, Holmes told the follower to “kill urself.” He later Tweeted it was time to “wake n bake,” a reference to marijuana. Holmes alleges his account was hacked and it was not him making the comments.[21]

    On April 29, 2010, according to a report filed by authorities at Pittsburgh International Airport, a flight attendant told police that Holmes wouldn’t turn off his iPod when requested and asked that officers speak to him.

    Suspended 4 games of 2010 season for violation of NFLs substance abuse policy

    In the 4th quarter of the final game of the 2011 season vs. the Miami Dolphins, Captain Santonio appeared to get into an argument with Jets offensive tackle Wayne Hunter in the huddle. Holmes was benched for the rest of the game, and the Jets ended up losing, which resulted in New York missing the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

    But this. This all demonstrates he’s something other than a quality teammate, who has his head & heart in the right place.

    Tebow is left handed. His arm band is on his right arm which you can’t see in the photograph.

  17. realitypolice says: Jun 4, 2012 9:23 AM

    If Tebow is smart, he’ll spend as much time catching passes from Sanchez and McElroy, both of whom will beat his brains out in training camp, just like he got beat out by two QBs in camp last year.

    Unless he’s just counting on the Jets this year doing what the Broncos did last year- succumbing to fan pressure and jamming him in there undeservedly when the starter stubs his toe.

  18. hatesycophants says: Jun 4, 2012 9:28 AM

    Why would a guy on the punt team need an arm band? On what planet is Tebow the “most popular guy in the league”? If you’re a real Christian, stop sniffing this guy’s jock and start doing JC’s work. Deal?

  19. bigkevkris says: Jun 4, 2012 10:05 AM

    At least all the idiot Tebow fans will get to see him on a losing team again this year…..

    And in turn taking a 1-4 team to the playoffs for the first time in 6 years. Stupid fan pressure, what do they know!

    “Again”? I’m no Broncos fan, but last I checked, they went to the playoffs with Tebow, and with a 8-8 record, they wern’t a “losing” team either. Your comment is fail.

  22. rcali says: Jun 4, 2012 1:37 PM

    Maybe Mark and MeTonio’s date at the basketball game didn’t go over so well.

    The only fail is the JETS…..The brocos were also a fail….1 and done in the playoffs that they didnt deserve to be in….at least with the Jets their coach can pretend that they belong in the playoffs……..fat d bag Rex Ryan

    Tebow is getting as many reps with his new teamates as he can.!!!!!!:-) :-)

  25. stevenfbrackett says: Jun 4, 2012 7:06 PM

    Anyone else thinking that Sanchez must be asking himself — “What have I gotta do to get away from this guy?”

    1 and done huh? Are you forgetting the shredding of the number 1 ranked defense in the playoffs. That would mean they actually played 2 games.

    “Jets West Camp”, Sanchez & Tebow, shouldn’t it really be called the blind leading the blind?

  28. 1westcoastphinfan says: Jun 5, 2012 10:27 AM

    It gets a little tiring hearing about the Jets this and the Jets that. Sanchez is a good guy and a decent quarterback, give him a little credit for his initiative. But spare us from all the rest of the hype. Prove it on the field during football season, that is what counts.
