New York Jets guard Willie Colon happy to avoid Tim Tebow drama


You probably wouldn’t know it if you watched ESPN, but some guy named Tim Tebow played for the New York Jets last year. It was kind of a small story, one not picked up by many major media outlets, but it happened.

Speaking with the media on Wednesday, New York Jets guard Willie Colon, previously a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, talked about how the Jets are more focused without the constant Tebow drama:

They care about winning and they care about being a better franchise, and not being a circus group. I think having the Tim Tebow circus out of here, and having different things that were kind of holding this team back, are starting to go out the window. I think we’re all starting to care about football and only football, which is a good sight to see (ESPN).

Colon will get a shot against his former team on Sunday when the 0-4 Pittsburgh Steelers come into town to take on the 3-2 Jets. If Colon ends up making a big play, I truly hope he “Tebows” in celebration. (Tebowing is still cool, right?)
