Jets Free Agency 2012: Tim Tebow Will Become Starter, Says Amani Toomer

Add Amani Toomer to the growing number of people who believe Tim Tebow will supplant Mark Sanchez as the New York Jets quarterback sooner rather than later.

According to Joel Schwartz of the New York Post, Toomer feels that Tebow is the future for the Jets behind center.

It's certainly not a hard scenario to see playing out. If and/or when Sanchez struggles early on, fans will be screaming at the top of their collective lungs for Tebow. Forget that Tebow barely completed 46 percent of his pass attempts last year, he's a winner they'll say.

It also stands to reason the Jets love the limelight, and what better way than to throw Tebow into the starting lineup? Head coach Rex Ryan has already talked about putting Tebow in for as many as 20 plays per game. Considering an average game sees each team have about 70 snaps, that's a pretty high percentage.

It remains to be seen what happens when New York hits training camp this summer. It will most definitely be a circus.
