Johnson: Jets considering “all possibilities” with Tim Tebow
A year ago at this time, Tim Tebow was still a member of the Denver Broncos, and it wasn’t completely known where Peyton Manning would play in 2012.
Today, Tebow is one of five quarterbacks on the Jets’ roster, and his future with the club is somewhat uncertain. At the league meeting in Phoenix, owner Woody Johnson said the club was “looking at all possibilities with him,” Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported Sunday.
Jets general manager John Izdik took a similar tact regarding Tebow. Per Tom Rock of Newsday, Idzik noted that Tebow was “under contract,” and the GM indicated he would let things “play out.”
Per Rotoworld salary figures, Tebow is due around $2.6 million in 2013. He figures to be quite tough to trade at that level of compensation, and he would also be difficult to justify keeping unless he had a defined role in the offense.
In short, his future with the Jets looks on the tenuous side, and another professional football league team would be happy to have him should the NFL no longer be in the cards.
