New York Jets Likely to Release Tim Tebow After 2013 NFL Draft

The New York Jets have repeatedly failed to trade backup quarterback Tim Tebow, but that doesn’t mean he still has a future with the team. In a matter of weeks, the Jets are expected to dump Tebow and allow him to move on to greener pastures.

According to Rich Cimini of, Tebow will likely be put out of his misery and be released from the Jets following the 2013 NFL Draft. He wrote:

Tebow is under contract for two more seasons, but his future with the team has been an ongoing storyline in the offseason. The Jets would like to trade him, sources said, but there has been no market and they’re expected to release him after the draft.

The Jets are calling it an open competition, but they have no plans to include Tebow, sources said.

The news really comes as no surprise.

Tebow has no place with the Jets and if he isn’t released then he will just create an unwanted distraction for the team in the New York media.

Whether or not Tebow will generate interest once he is a free agent remains to be seen, but you can expect a few teams will be looking to add a mobile scout team quarterback and Tebow fits the bill.

    There’s no team that is gonna sign tebow he’s nothing but a destraction. It will be a suprise if he gets signed by anyone, not even the bottom teams are desperate enough to add him to there roster teblow is one of the most over rated players in nfl history. He did have a good collage career and a few good games in Denver but that doesn’t warrant the attention he gets. The best that he’s gonna do is be a backup or third string qb for the rest of his career but I guess he could go to the Canadian league or arena league o wait he would have to be good to play there. But there are plenty of high school and jr. High teams he could be an assistant coach for

      I don’t think the CFL is a real option. You have to be a really good natural thrower of the ball to make it as a CFL Qb.
