He’s been banned from Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network until he does something worth talking about. And we apparently won’t be facing the dilemma of a temporary unshunning of Tim Tebow in the event he’s traded from the team with which he’s done nothing worth talking about to date.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the Jets have no plans to trade Tebow.
The key word is plans. Because plans can change. If a starting quarterback goes down today and the team has no absolutely no faith in its backup, the Jets could, in theory, flip Tebow for more than the fourth-round pick they gave up to get him. Or if Shad Khan’s team takes a Lambeau-style beatdown on Sunday, falling to 1-6 and having no hope for the balance of the season, Khan could make an offer that the Jets wouldn’t refuse, in the hopes of keeping the home stadium full for the final five games of a campaign in which the Jags have to date been outscored 95-20.
None of that is likely, but the point is that the report, as crafted, leaves the door open for someone to call.
For now, however, no one wants Tebow. Which makes it very easy to have no plans to trade him.
