With Peyton Manning joining the Denver Broncos, Tim Tebow needed a new home. The Word Eye Heard is, he’s joining the NY Jets.
Tim Tebow‘s impending arrival to the NY Jets came as a complete shock to several members of the organization … and TMZ has learned the news has already created a rift between the players.
Sources connected to the Jets tell TMZ … a bunch of players were working out in the gym at the Jets training facility when the news broke that Tebow had been traded.
We’re told several players got into a pretty heated conversation about the move … with multiple Jets complaining he’s “overrated.”
But Tebow DOES have supporters … we’re told multiple players argued that he’s a good guy with real potential … and will be a good backup for Mark Sanchez.
As one player put it, “If nothing else, he will make us a more holy squad.”
The Wheard: TMZ
The Lord works in mysterious ways … ’cause Tim Tebow has just been traded from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets … this according to FOX NFL insider Jay Glazer.
According to Jay … the Jets had to give up a 4th round draft pick and a 6th-round pick in exchange for the former Heisman Trophy winner … and got an additional 7th round pick in return.
The Jets already have a starting quarterback in Mark Sanchez … but if Sanchez chokes again … like he did last season … Tebow could be in a good position to take over the #1 spot.
