Last year, the Jets and Jaguars were the only two teams interested in acquiring Tim Tebow in a trade from the Broncos. Now that the Jets want to get rid of him and the Jaguars have already said they won’t acquire him, does that mean the Jets have no hope of getting anything for Tebow in a trade?
Probably. But that doesn’t mean the Jets won’t try.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Jets do not plan to release Tebow before the start of the new league year in March because they still hope they can trade him.
That hope, however, seems incredibly unrealistic. The Jets will almost certainly find that no one is interested, and then release Tebow at some point in the spring.
At that point, Tebow would become an unrestricted free agent, and he still might not draw any interest. One NFL general manager told Schefter, “I think his career is over without playing another position.”
But before he can play another position, he has to find another team. That won’t be easy.
