The New York Jets could see Tim Tebow go off to another team next year.
Even with Jets coach Rex Ryan's recent benching of starting quarterback, Mark Sanchez, Tebow isn't likely to get more playing time.
“I think it’s where we are right now and I just think it’s best for our team and for this game,” Ryan said on a conference call Tuesday, explaining his decision to start McElroy instead of Tebow less than 24 hours after a hideous loss to Tennessee officially eliminated the Jets from playoff contention.
Yahoo News Reports:
The move is expected if backup quarterback Greg McElroy starts the final two games of the season for the Jets, the New York Daily News reported Tuesday, citing sources.
McElroy, a second year pro, was given the start for this Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers after Mark Sanchez committed five turnovers in a 14-10 loss at the Tennessee Titans on Monday night.
Tebow was acquired in an off-season trade with the Denver Broncos after they signed quarterback Peyton Manning. The Jets said at the time they planned to make Tebow an integral part of the offense, but he has played sparingly this season behind incumbent Sanchez, who started the first 14 games.
