NEW YORK (WFAN) – Mark Sanchez isn’t one to shy away from a competition.
Actually, it seems he’s bringing it right to his hometown.
Tim Tebow told the New York Daily News that he was invited to — and will attend — Sanchez’s annual “Jets West” camp in Southern California later this offseason.
Just don’t expect a throw-by-throw analysis. The five-day camp “will be private” this year, the Daily News reported, a shift for the normally media-friendly event.
The Jets’ starting quarterback has insisted he can coexist with his high-profile backup, who some expect to give Sanchez a run for his money at the position. But for the New York players in attendance, it won’t be about any could-be QB controversy.
It’ll be about team-building.
“It’s just so important to spend time together as much as possible,” third-string signal-caller Greg McElroy told the Daily News. “It’s a good opportunity for us to get out of our element and do something social as a group with the benefit of working and great weather. It’s really a good time for us. It’s a lot of football and a lot of fun.”
Offensive players McElroy, Shonn Greene, Joe McKnight, John Conner, Patrick Turner, Scotty McKnight, Jeremy Kerley, Dustin Keller, Jeff Cumberland and Josh Baker have also committed to attend “Jets West,” the Daily News reported.
