Tim Tebow isn’t getting too much playing time on the New York Jets, but owner Woody Johnson said that he has no plans of trading the former Mile High Messiah.
Johnson said that Tebow will be on the team for at least another three years.
“Are we going to keep Tebow? Absolutely. He’ll be with us for three years … I think he’s going to be a real valuable asset in terms of helping us win games.”
Johnson may think that Tebow is a valuable asset to the team but he isn’t ready to take the ball out of Mark Sanchez’ hands. Sanchez has struggled this season, but Johnson he will remain the starting quarterback in New York for the time being.
“I see the same things in Mark Sanchez (as) when I first met him. He’s still a young quarterback … (Quarterback) is probably the most difficult position athletically and mentally that there is in all of sports.”
The New York Daily News reports that Sanchez has the worst pass completion percentage in the league at the moment. Still, Johnson sees a young and talented quarterback when he looks at Sanchez.
“I wouldn’t look at the numbers too seriously… A quarterback’s job ultimately is to win games. Mark Sanchez has proven that he can do that. He pulled out a game a few weeks ago in the last couple minutes when we played Miami.”
What do you think about the New York Jets’ quarterback situation? Is it Tebow Time yet?
