The New York Jets were in the Peyton Manning buzz. There were some thoughts they would bring in Chad Henne to push Mark Sanchez. Could Tim Tebow be the answer?
As much as it does not make any sense at first glance, when you think about it, Tebow to the Jets makes perfect sense. The Jets had the league's worst locker room last season. Tebow is known as, if nothing else, a great locker room guy. Tebow is undeniably the best wildcat option in the NFL and New York just hired wildcat godfather Tony Sparano to be their offensive coordinator.
The Jets also struggled in the red zone last season. Tebow is a red zone monster, where he has the highest touchdown percentage in the red zone of any quarterback in the last two seasons.
Most of all, the Mark Sanchez situation lends itself to a Tebow sighting in the Big Apple. There have been murmurs across the league that Sanchez is too comfortable as the Jets' starting quarterback and they should bring in a veteran to push him to maximize his talent.
The popularity of Tebow (if not the skill set) would have to light a fire under Sanchez to work his tail off. Also, the nature of a relatively stable quarterback situation means the Jets would likely get Tebow for a low draft pick.
The Lefty Savior in the City That Never Sleeps? It could happen.
Chance he winds up in New York: 31 percent
