“If there’s going to be competition at the position, it’s not going to come from Tim Tebow,” Mark Sanchez’s tutor told USA Today.
“I do believe that he has the potential to lead a football team if you get the right pieces around him,” Warner said. “But the problem is that they’ve got a long way to go here in New York to get the right pieces around him.”
It’s amazing how good a former team can look once you’ve sampled someplace else, and how bad things can be when you’re there in the first place. Brandon Jacobs, Darrelle Revis and Tim Tebow must be feeling those emotions right now.
The backup quarterback who isn’t expected to remain on the Jets, but is still with the Jets, worked out Monday with a former Jets quarterback. Yeah, we’re confused too.
Unlike Darrelle Revis, Tim Tebow is planning to “voluntarily” — in the true sense of the word — attend the workouts in Florham Park, N.J., beginning on April 15, according to multiple reports.
“He’s doing an excellent job — the progress Mark has made over the past three weeks is definitely very positive,” Garcia said. “It shows that Mark is committed to bettering himself and getting himself more mentally prepared.”
It is Ryan’s responsibility to put the best players on the field. He can take advice from his assistants, but in the final analysis the most important thing that Ryan will do is determine who is out on the field.
“He’s on the roster, and he’ll get a chance to compete,” Ryan said of Tebow. “We’ll see how the offseason plays out, but right now Tim is on our roster.”
If you know anything about how the Jets operated prior to this offseason, you are very much aware that Florham Park, N.J., was the NFL’s version of the Wild West. But then John Idzik rode into town on an old paint.
The Cardinals are expected to release quarterback Kevin Kolb, and if they do general manager John Idzik will consider signing him, according to a report.
Despite not taking a regular-season snap in the NFL since 2010, the 35-year-old veteran is healthy and looking forward to trying to beat out Mark Sanchez and whoever else might be in the mix at quarterback for the Jets this season.
Following the announcement of the signing, the newest member of Gang Green tweeted: “Just made it official!! I am a New York Jet!!!!!” Garrard has a 39-37 record in 79 career starts, all with the Jaguars.
Newly-hired New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said Sanchez will probably have “just a little bit of a leg up” in any quarterback competition the team has this offseason.
Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore has agreed to re-sign with Miami. NFL.com is reporting that the deal is worth $8 million over two years.
The Jets have given Garrard a workout. If they see any kind of talent, they should sign him and give him the chance to beat out the stiffs that are still on the roster.
