According to ESPNNewYork.com, New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow was so frustrated that Greg McElroy was named the starter instead of him that he told the coaches to take him out of their wildcat package.
Tebow has been frustrated all season by his lack of playing time, but it culminated Tuesday upon hearing he would be passed over for a starting opportunity when Ryan decided to bench Mark Sanchez. Tebow was disappointed and upset enough to say he didn’t want to be used situationally, sources said. He told the Jets coaches early in the week, giving Kerley time to take the practice reps. Soon reports emerged speculating the backup was looking to play outside of New York next season.
In the pos game press conference, Tebow was asked who told him he wouldn’t be playing in the Wildcat and Tebow responded, “It just kind of happens,” Tebow said.
And the circus that is the New York Jets continues to entertain the football world.
