Cimini adds that the Jets will release Tebow if they’re unable to find an interested trade partner.
“I don’t see anyone trading for Tebow,” said an opposing personnel director. “If the Jets get compensation, that’s impressive.”
This has been the general consensus for months now, but I guess you can’t blame Jets’ new GM John Idzik for pursuing all available options.
Tebow, 25, has a $2.586 million base salary for the 2013 season.
The personnel director that Cimini spoke with actually tossed out the 49ers as potential landing spot if he were to be cut loose. Other league executives suggested that the Eagles, Patriots, Bears and the Cardinals could options as well.
This appears to be a fairly optimistic market for Tebow given that there’s been no inclination of any NFL team having interest in bringing him in, even if he were to be cut loose.
