Tim Tebow reportedly wants to leave the New York Jets.
And who can blame him?
Tebow was brought to New York as a co-quarterback, but he hasn’t taken too many snaps this season. Tebow has had to stand on the sidelines and watch as Mark Sanchez repeatedly gives poor performances on the field. Sanchez’ play this season led Tebow to believe that his time to shine was right around the corner, but, when the Jets finally made the decision to replace Sanchez, they went with Greg McElroy instead of the former Mile High Messiah.
According to the Sports Xchange, McElroy will be the Jets starting quarterback next Sunday when the team takes on the San Diego Chargers.
After benching Sanchez, Coach Rex Ryan said:
“I think it’s best for our team, and for this game … I have to look at what I think is the best for the team and not necessarily the individual. I’ll say this about Tim and I’ve always said it: I know he wants to help this team be successful in the worst way and there’s no doubt about that.”
Tebow may want to help out the Jets, but that’s a little hard to do when you’re stuck on the sidelines. The Seattle Times reports that the former Heisman Trophy winner will reportedly ask to be traded at the end of this season.
Tebow has only played in 11 games this season and has only thrown 8 passes. He has rushed 32 times for a total of 102 yards.
