Tebow Trade Rumors: Is His Career Over?
Tebow’s name is all over ESPN these days whether it’s warranted or not–I’m looking at you, Skip Bayless–so I imagine today will be especially Tebow-rific, as Adam Schefter is reporting that the Jets will hang on to him in an effort to find a trade…and some think it won’t happen.
“I think his career is over without playing another position,” one NFL GM reportedly said of Tebow. And while his fans will undoubtedly think that’s way harsh, some think it’s just the brutal truth. Whether it’s the result of poor management decisions on his behalf, making him overshadowed and underused in the past season–or, some would say, that he was overhyped to begin with–one can’t deny that he hasn’t had much of a chance to show us what he’s made of. After a promising start to his career and a much-anticipated move to New York, the 2012 season left fans underwhelmed.
As far as the Jets go, they seemed at a loss for what to do with him, though they seemingly had faith that his talents could be put to good use.
“I think Tim Tebow can be good at whatever he wants to be good at,” offensive coordinator Tony Sparano said.
The Jets can’t try and make a trade until March 12th, so we’ll see what happens.
