Sources: Jets Plan to Part Ways with Tim Tebow After Season


Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) —  New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow has been frustrated with his role throughout the entire season, but only publicly admitted it this week.

Sources say that Tebow will seek to play somewhere else next season and that the Jets appear willing to to accommodate his wishes via a trade or release.

With the Jets at 6-8 and out of the playoff hunt, Tebow was upset he was passed over for the starting-quarterback job after Mark Sanchez was benched.

Head coach Rex Ryan opted to go with unproven backup Greg McElroy for the final two games.  McElroy led the Jets to a win over the Arizona Cardinals earlier this season after replacing Sanchez in the third quarter.

When asked if he sees himself returning to the Jets next year, Tebow said:  “I’m not sure.  It’s something we’ll talk about after the season.”

Tebow is signed through the 2014 season.
