New York Jets Pro Bowl left tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson admitted he was "taken aback" when the team traded for Tim Tebow. Ferguson discussed Tebow, Mark Sanchez and other Jets issues during an appearance on WFAN with Joe and Evan earlier this week.
Here is a portion of the interview. Sports Radio Interviews has the transcript.
How surprised were you when you found out the Jets got Tim Tebow? How do you think this is going to work with Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez?
"I think everyone was taken aback at first. Like wow nobody knew what to expect, but I met with the man and he's got a good head on his shoulders and he's real passionate. I think we'll have to wait and see until the season because not only will it be exciting to see what does happen, but it's going to make a lot of other teams really have to second guess what we'll be doing because we have the advantage of having great quarterbacks and now we have the opportunity to do what we want with what we have."
What is the feeling like in camp with both Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez? Was it a normal starter and backup quarterback relationship?
"The feeling was very normal if you will. Mark was playing ball and Tebow had the opportunity to run with the No.2′s. I don't feel that feeling of conflict was there during that period of time. I think that feeling is more outside in than inside out. I think right now we are in a good place."
