The future of Tim Tebow with the New York Jets is not too bright, but don’t expect the Jets to release Tebow before the start of the new league year on March 12, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Instead, the Jets hope to hang on to their personal punt protector and hope to trade him as soon as they can.
The first day the Jets would be able to trade Tebow would be Tuesday, March 12, and they want to see if there’s any other team out there willing to surrender a mid- to late-round draft pick for the quarterback who helped the Denver Broncos win a playoff game last season.
It is unlikely that Tebow will generate much of a market, but the Jets will give trading him their best effort.
In all fairness, Tebow deserves a chance to have a new start and prove he has what it takes to become a quarterback in this league — although he has given every indication that isn’t a strong possibility.
