Tim Tebow is making headlines this morning, but not for being a starting NFL quarterback. That possibility is now up in the air. The New York Daily News has reported that Tebow will ask to be traded following the decision by New York Jets Coach Rex Ryan to select Greg McElroy instead of him to start in the place of Mark Sanchez. "Tim can play quarterback, do traditional things, but to me I was just, I kinda, made a decision that in my gut I feel the best thing for our football team is for Greg to be our quarterback now," Coach Ryan said yesterday. Maggie Gray is the anchor for SportsIllustrated.com. She comes to the studio with the latest on the speculation.
This move signals that Tebow’s not going to back in 2013. “It’s finally turned into the complete circus that we all thought that it was going to be at the beginning of this season,” Gray says. But she says you have to consider the Jets thinking about the team’s future. “They want to see if Greg McElroy can actually come in next year and challenge for that starting quarterback job with Mark Sanchez, and maybe another veteran quarterback they would bring in to have a true quarterback competition in the Jets locker room. But Tebow, out the door.”
