Things just didn’t work out between the New York Jets and Tim Tebow, seeing that the Jets have announced that they will be releasing Tebow from his contract.
Tebow was signed over the the New York Jets in early 2012 after a successful run with the Denver Broncos.
The Jets released a press statement this morning, here are a few highlights:
Tebow (6’3″, 236/Florida/Jacksonville, FL) was acquired by the Jets in a trade on March 26, 2012 from Denver and saw action in 12 games this past season. Originally a first-round selection of the Broncos in 2010, Tebow has started 16 of the 35 games he has played. For his career, he completed 173-of-361 passes for 2,422 yards, 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions for a 75.2 passer rating and added 989 yards and 12 touchdowns on 197 rushes.
“We have a great deal of respect for Tim Tebow,” said Jets head coach Rex Ryan. “Unfortunately, things did not work out the way we all had hoped. Tim is an extremely hard worker, evident by the shape he came back in this offseason. We wish him the best moving forward.”
It is also a bit awkward that Tebow and the Jets stopped following each other on Twitter.
It is sad to see one of Denver’s starting players perform so poorly and make so many mistakes.
Look at how excited he his to join the Jets!
Where do you think Tebow will wind up next?
