Tim Tebow plans to make offseason workouts for the Jets if he is still on the roster, according to a source.
Tebow is widely expected to leave the Jets this season despite being under contract for two more years. Three months into the offseason, Tebow remains a Jet for now, but he’ll still be attending the voluntary workouts that begin Monday.
The quarterback, who has previously expressed his displeasure at the minimal role he’s been given by the Jets, could be released if he’s not traded before training camp opens in late July. However, staging a protest would not be in Tebow’s character.
Last season saw Tebow throw just eight passes and carry 32 times. The player also had to deny reports that he asked Jets coach Rex Ryan to keep him out of the team’s Wildcat package.
There seems to be no obvious role for Tebow at the Jets this season. The team signed David Garrard to compete with Mark Sanchez for the starting quarterback role this season with new offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg having no obvious intention to use Tebow.
What Tim Tebow plans to do beyond the voluntary workouts is currently a mystery. While a Jets exit seems almost certain, no obvious destination has emerged for the 25-year-old. A recent rumor about a trade to the Seahawks proved to be inaccurate.
Are you impressed by Tim Tebow’s plans to attend the voluntary workouts, and where do you see the quarterback ending up this season?
