Report: Jets Will Look to Trade Tim Tebow as Part of ‘Mutual’ Break-Up Following Season

There’s been much discussion about who the Jets’ quarterback will be moving forward, but it doesn’t sound like it will be Tim Tebow.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported Thursday that the team will look to trade Tebow. This comes after the polarizing quarterback reportedly said he would request a trade or his release at some point.

That, of course, would make the divorce a mutual one, as Mehta also reports.

The decision to bring Tebow to New York has been nothing short of a disaster this season. Tebow has rarely been used, even despite starting quarterback Mark Sanchez‘s woeful struggles throughout the season. Reports of Tebow’s unhappiness surfaced earlier this week when the Jets decided that third-string quarterback Greg McElroy, not Tebow, would be the starting quarterback this week (and likely the rest of the season).

Tebow has appeared in 11 games for the Jets this season, but he’s only attempted eight passes. He completed six of those, but for only 39 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. He has also attempted 32 rushes for 102 yards.
