Tim Tebow can't control what the New York Jets do, but he can control his own actions. 

The enigmatic quarterback is smartly preparing for the team's voluntary workouts on April 15, according to Conor Orr of The Star-Ledger:

Tebow knows, along with everyone else on the planet, that he's not going to be part of the Jets' plans in 2013. The team has been looking for a trade partner since the combine, but to this point, there's been nary a rumor on that front. 

The quarterback is likely frustrated by the team's lack of direction as it pertains to his future. Nobody would blame him if he was, but being who he is, Tebow won't make a scene by sitting out of workouts or by making silly demands.

Instead, he'll show up for workouts like he's been doing since joining the NFL fraternity three years ago, putting his heart and soul into the task at hand. 

Love him or hate him, that's not something that's ever in question with Tebow. 

You can question his ability to succeed as an NFL quarterback, but you'll never question his focus or his effort.

He's that guy on the team that coaches point to and say, "Why can't you be more like him?" when dealing with players who give less than 100 percent, despite possessing outrageous amounts of talent. 

It's this rare quality—his ability to completely sell out for his team, no matter what it costs him personally—that will ultimately cause at least one NFL team to give Tebow another chance in 2013 after the Jets inevitably cut him. 

Tebow doesn't know any other way to approach the game of football, and his passion for life and for the game will end up being the magnet that draws him to another team this upcoming season.
