The New York Jets have made some moves this offseason that they hope will improve their roster towards next season. Two offseason decisions are more prevalent among the rest.

The Jets have re-signed quarterback Mark Sanchez and brought Tim Tebow on-board to play a backup quarterback position. New York has also hired Tony Sparano as the new offensive coordinator to replace Brian Schottenheimer. Some of the moves the Jets made will improve the team, while other decisions are questionable. 

It's unlikely that Tim Tebow will start the first few games for the Jets next season, but if Sanchez doesn't produce or is injured, Jets fans can look forward to the former Bronco taking the field as the starter. Mark Sanchez will and should be the starting quarterback, but it will all come down to how he plays in the first few games.

Sanchez and the rest of the Jets failed to make the playoffs last season, but he has a solid postseason win percentage, and he is known to produce under pressure.

If one move was positive for the Jets, it was adding Sparano to the coaching roster. He is the only NFL head coach to take a one-win team to the postseason the following year. He's the second coach in NFL history to make a ten-game turnaround. Both of those accomplishments were with the Dolphins.

The two men in green that fans will be looking at next season is Tim Tebow and Tony Sparano. It's unknown how both men will contribute, but it's clear that the addition is highly anticipated.
