Tim Tebow traded to the Jets for a 4th rd pick!


Sometimes you just have to take a step back and appreciate the ridiculousness of what is actually happening in the NFL world around us.

Peyton Manning is a Denver Bronco. Jay Glazer of FOX reports the New York Jets have traded a fourth-round pick for Tim Tebow. This actually happened.

If you had predicted this sequence of events just two months ago, your friends might stop talking to you. As a resident of New York City and a student of the back page tabloids, this is all so delicious; I can barely believe it’s true.

The New York Daily News came strong Wednesday with their Timsanity cover. Tebow in the big city will make Jeremy Lin’s New York run like a cute opening act.

So why would the Jets want Tebow?

Apparently, the team believes Tebow’s magical healing powers could unite a divided locker room.

“Bringing in a guy like (Tebow) would help,” one source told Rich Cimini of “It makes perfect sense.”

Except it makes no sense at all. The Jets fanbase will howl for Mark Sanchez‘s dismissal after his first off-target pass of the year. (So roughly the first quarter of the first preseason game.) Tebow factions will emerge on the team, in the media, and certainly among Jets fans.

Sanchez, for one, sounds like a Tebow fan.

“I think Tim will do great no matter what happens,” Sanchez said on the Petros and Money Show Tuesday.

This happened, of course, before Sanchez knew he’d be teammates with Tebow. The hosts didn’t press Sanchez about Tebow possibly joining the Jets, but the USC grad doesn’t sound ready to learn a new offense as a “Wildcat” option.

“I don’t know if I’m very good splitting out like that,” Sanchez said, laughing. “I don’t like coming off the field.”

He might have to get used to it. Sanchez recently said he regretted comments that connected his new contract to his status as a leader of the Jets.

With Tebow now landing in New York, Sanchez’s leadership is under attack once again.
