New York Jets Intensify Interest In Tim Tebow, According To Reports

The New York Jets have intensified their interest in trading for Tim Tebow, two sources told ESPNNewYork.com on Tuesday night. The Jets began internal discussions about acquiring Tebow as soon as it was reported Monday that the Denver Broncos may be interested in trading him after signing Peyton Manning.

The Jets are in need of quarterback depth behind Mark Sanchez, but they have reasonable concerns about the potential media circus that would follow in the wake of signing Tebow. Still, he would fit nicely in the Wildcat packages that new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano found some success running with the Miami Dolphins.

The Green Bay Packers and the Jacksonville Jaguars have already been connected to Tebow, among other teams. It's unclear whether the Jets have actually contacted the Broncos regarding a possible deal. The Jets recently signed Drew Stanton to be their No. 2 quarterback, but at the moment appear willing to at least send out feelers on Tebow.
