Tim Tebow may now officially be a New Yorker.
He’s denied his first trade rumor.
They grow up so fast.
Tebow joked about yesterday’s report in the New York Daily News that he might seek a trade after the season if he wasn’t the Jets starter.
“Yeah, that’s what these guys told me about a little bit ago. I find that pretty funny,” Tebow said, via Mike Garafolo of USA Today. “It’s about as true as me living in Hoboken, I think.”
That’s a reference to reports this spring he had moved into a condo in Frank Sinatra’s hometown.
“I guess that’s just part of what you have to deal with, rumors and stuff like that. I don’t know,” Tebow said. “But all I can say is I love being here as a Jet. I’m thankful for it, I want to be here for a long time. It’s just one of those things you have to put up with.”
As polarizing as he can be, you can’t argue that he handles such things with grace, which is part of the reason he’s as popular as he is.
