New York Jets Want To Limit Tim Tebow’s Media Exposure
Florham Park, NJ. – The management of the New York Jets are moving to limit his media exposure. They realize that Tim Tebow has the ability to bring the circus to town and they want to limit it.
The team has decided to limit Tebow’s “outside endeavors,” the New York Daily News reported, including a regularly scheduled radio appearance similar to starting QB Mark Sanchez’s on “The Michael Kay Show,” which airs in New York.
The Daily News quoted an unidentified NFL source as saying,
“That could change. If Tim becomes the starter the radio thing could happen.”
On a Friday radio interview, Tebow made it clear he is uncertain if he will ever be a starting quarterback again.
“I don’t know what the future holds, but I know who holds my future. That’s something that has always given me peace and comfort. That’s why I don’t have to worry about the future. I can just worry about today and worry about becoming better as a football player and a person.”
The Jets acquired Tebow from the Denver Broncos in a recent trade. The backup quarterback was introduced and more than 200 members of the media showed up. He said his only plan is to help his new team win games and “be the best quarterback, best teammate, best football player I can be and just be someone that adds something to that locker room.”
Coach Rex Ryan and general manager Mike Tannenbaum have said in many different interviews that Tebow is their backup and Sanchez is their starter. Both have also said they envision Tebow having significant playing time. Tebow has chosen his words carefully since arriving in New York, staying away from anything that could stir controversy.
