Report: Jets plan on trading or releasing Tim Tebow in the offseason

According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, the New York Jets plan on trading or releasing quarterback Tim Tebow in the offseason.

In addition to likely parting ways with Tim Tebow in the offseason, the New York Jets are mulling whether to eat more than $8 million in order to cut or trade fellow quarterback Mark Sanchez, according to two sources familiar with the circumstances.

The team’s obvious preference is to get something for Tebow through a trade, but that may be difficult considering how little he has played and the fact that he has now been bypassed by third-stringer Greg McElroy, who will start for New York (6-8) this Sunday against the San Diego Chargers.

“You’d think that they’d want to showcase [Tebow] just a little if they want to deal him,” one of the sources said. “Do something to increase his value.”

I can’t imagine anyone wanting to trade for Tebow.  I would even be surprised if there are any teams that are willing to sign him as a free agent because of all the attention he draws.

With all the hype that surrounded the Jets before the season started, they’re now a complete train wreck.
