A crashed Jet, Tim Tebow will succeed under center if given a fair opportunity to compete


Rex Ryan never even gave Tim Tebow a chance.

Three days after taking West Virginia standout Geno Smith, the New York Jets clipped embattled quarterback Tim Tebow earlier this morning.

By releasing the 25-year-old Tebow, who has thrown 17 touchdowns, against nine interceptions, for 2,422 yards in 14 starts, Gang Green will save $2.58 million in salary cap space.

Tebow, acquired from the Denver Broncos for a fourth and sixth-round selection in the 2012 draft, was supposed to challenge the immortal Mark Sanchez for time under center.

Enabling Sanchez’s hideous performances, Jets coaches firmly refused to give the 6-foot-3, 235 pound Tebow an opportunity to perform as a field general.

Hence, Tebow connected on only six of eight tosses for 39 yards last autumn in the swamps of Jersey.

A passer who guided Denver to a 7-4 record and playoff victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports “more than one team asked” Tebow to consider playing tight end.

Despite throwing like a glorified version of Corky Thatcher, the native Floridian showed confidence and testicular fortitude by rebuffing offers to switch positions.

Although never to be confused with Johnny Unitas, the always successful Tebow is a proven winner on both the collegiate and professional levels.

Unemployed and garnering little interest, the crashed Jet may have to compete for the Orlando Predators of the Arena Football League.

If Tim Tebow is forced to relocate to Orlando to earn a living, the Predators will be led by a man built to prevail on the gridiron.
