Jets quarterback-of-all-trades Tim Tebow reportedly will ask to be traded or released after the season. Asked about the situation on Wednesday, Tebow said he has not asked to be traded.
According to our buddy Bob Glauber of Newsday, Tebow said that any such discussions will take place after the season.
Which strongly implies that they will take place. Which strongly implies that Tebow will be gone.
The fact that the Jets, who have more leaks than the Orca in the last 20 minutes of Jaws, have put out no denial of any desire to part ways with Tebow in the 24 hours since news of his intentions broke strongly implies that the Jets plan to accommodate the request he has yet to make.
There’s no reason for Tebow to ask to be traded now. The window for 2012 has closed, and it won’t open again until March 2013. When it does, Tebow most likely will either be traded or cut.
