Sources say that the Jets have intensified their efforts to land quarterback, Tim Tebow. Sources say that bringing in the mild-mannered Tebow will alleviate some negative emotions associated with the Jets. In addition, Tebow’s play making ability and intangibles make him an intriguing option. Add in new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano’s love of the Wildcat offense and Tebow seems like a no-brainer.

However, the Jets just doled out major bucks to their ‘franchise’ quarterback, Mark Sanchez. Sanchez claims he wasn’t affected by his team’s pursuit of Peyton Manning, but we all know that Marky Mark is a sensitive player. Bringing Tebow-Mania to New York would not only create hysteria, but put immense pressure on the fragile Sanchez. The Jet locker room needs to unite under its franchise quarterback, not endure the phenomenon that is known as Tim Tebow. 

Some Jet players have been very candid, stating that they don’t want Tebow. Antonio Cromartie, who is never at a loss for words, stated that the Jets can use Jeremy Kerley or Joe McKnight to run the Wildcat. And for once, Cromartie is right. The distractions, whether good or bad, that surround Tebow are not appropriate for this Jet team. If anything, the team may be going public with their interest in hopes of rallying the players to support Sanchez.

While the Giants have stolen all of the headlines, owner Woody Johnson has never been one to back down. Johnson brought in the Brett Favre in 2008 and has a history of making drastic moves following disappointing seasons. The Broncos will want at least third round pick for their unorthodox quarterback and that’s a steep price that the Jets shouldn’t pay.
