While Tim Tebow continues to make controversial appearances during the offseason, the New York Jets are staying active with football related issues and continuing to shop  their punt protector.

Unfortunately for the Jets, there won’t be a market for a player that has failed to show any characteristics that could make him a successful quarterback. Ultimately, the Jets will turn to release Tebow once all of their options have been covered.

“I don’t see anyone trading for Tebow,” said a NFL personnel director, per ESPN New York. “If the Jets get compensation, that’s impressive.”

One of the potential landing spots for Tebow in free agency could be the San Francisco 49ers, per the report. Tebow would provide the 49ers a mobile back up to Colin Kaepernick in their read-option offense.

Of course, the Niners would actually have to have interest in return.

It looks like Tebow will struggle to find a home in 2013 and we can’t say that the news comes as any surprise.

    I guess winning does not count as a viable characteristic that could make him a successful quarterback

    File the name JOSH SANCHEZ under the column marked “HACK WANNABE SPORTSWRITERS TRYING TO USE TIM TEBOW’S NAME TO GET INTERNET HITS”

    Oh, lordy, this really is a pathetic piece of trash. No sources named of course…like Josh Sanchez has some sort of inside information about the behind-the-scenes dealings regarding all things Tebow. This is clearly a Tebow-hater wanting attention.

    7-4 record and beating a playoff team is not a viable characteristic ?

    Bias reporting? You can feel the distain in almost every sentence. Mr. Sanchez related to Mark by chance? Looks like little Joshy needs to grow up a lil bit.

    The only people who would speak out against a man of God are those who are not.He has made no statements against anyone,only saying thanks to his Lord and Saviour,Jesus.How funny it is that by lifting up the name of Jesus that a lost and dying world has come against him.Before you judge him get to know the One that has set Tebow apart.Forget about football and deal with the real matter get yourself right with Jesus and you too will be thanking Him
