One of Tim Tebow’s most impressive comebacks last season came against the Jets, when he ran for a 20-yard touchdown in the final minute of a 17-13 Broncos victory. Now the Jets are considering the idea that if they can’t beat Tebow, he should join them.
The Jets have discussed trading for Tebow, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. Schefter refers to the Jets acquiring Tebow as a long shot, but it’s at least a possibility.
Tebow in a Jets uniform would put a different kind of heat on starter Mark Sanchez, whose new contract extension shortly after the Jets exited the Peyton Manning sweepstakes appeared to give him a firm grip on the starting job. As it turned out, the Broncos winning the Manning sweepstakes could be the first step toward Sanchez having to hold off Tebowmania in order to remain the Jets’ starter.
Tebow in a Jets uniform would also be fun to see because when Tebow and Antonio Cromartie are on opposite sides of the ball in practice, it would be the first instance in NFL history of the defensive player being the one who needs to wear the red jersey.
