With each day that passes, the Jets and head coach Rex Ryan’s intentions to use Tim Tebow as a quarterback become ever more clear.
The latest decisions by the staff to name Greg McElroy as the starting quarterback has all but assured Tebow’s departure from town, as well as frustrated the quarterback to the point that he has “opted out of the wildcat.”
According to ESPN New York:
New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow was so frustrated when the starting job was conferred upon Greg McElroy early last week that he told the coaches he didn’t want to be used in any Wildcat packages Sunday against the San Diego Chargers, multiple Jets sources told ESPNNewYork.com.
Can you blame Tebow for the move? If he wants to have any sort of future in the NFL the last thing he wants to do is risk injury for a franchise that threw him under the bus.
The topic was brushed over following the Jets 27-17 loss to the Chargers, but according to ESPN New York, Tebow told the coaches cut and dry that he wouldn’t be used “situationally.”
As of Saturday night, Tebow to the Jaguars is a “virtual certainty.”
What do you think of Tebow’s decision to opt out of the Wildcat? Sound off below!
