While I've never been a huge Tebow fan, the Jets really screwed him. I wish Tebow the best of luck and hope he gets picked up by a team that will at least give him a chance.espn wrote:Jets release Tim Tebow
One year after bringing Tim Tebow to Broadway, creating a nationwide fascination that slowly evolved into a salacious controversy, the New York Jets made the long-anticipated move Monday of releasing one of the NFL's most popular players.
The team's plan always was to take no more than five quarterbacks into their organized team activities. When no other team offered even a seventh-round draft pick for Tebow by the conclusion of the NFL draft on Saturday, the decision was imminent, sources said.
Tebow attended the first two weeks of the offseason program. In fact, he reported 12 pounds under his 2012 playing weight. Despite vague comments by team officials, they never had any intention of retaining him.
The final Tebow bill: It cost the Jets a fourth-round pick and $1.5 million in salary, plus another $2.5 million they had to pay the Denver Broncos to satisfy part of the trade agreement.
Everyone is so caught up with his mechanics, that they overlook the fact that he is a winner. Do you want perfect mechanics or do you want someone who wins? (see David Carr) It's amazing how many bad teams in this league have QB's that can't perform under pressure and yet all these teams won't give Tebow a chance. While at Denver he won 6 straight games when he took over starting QB, that as many or more wins than TEN teams in the NFL had last season...total.
