Voluntary off-season workouts start next week in New York.
Despite huge doubts over his future in New York, quarterback Tim Tebow is expected to attend workouts with the Jets next week.
Tebow is under contract for two more seasons, but his future in the Big Apple has been in doubt for some time with the Jets reportedly wanting to trade him.
However, the 25-year-old hasn’t been able to find a trade suitor, and remains on the roster for now but it is widely believed that he will be released after the draft.
Following a frustrating year in which he was overlooked for the quarterback role even when Mark Sanchez was dropped from the offensive starting line-up, Tebow’s days in New York appear to be numbered.
The Jets have Sanchez, David Garrard, Greg McElroy and Matt Simms on the roster, and could conceivably add another quarterback in the draft.
Despite an intention to leave the competition open, there has been a genuine effort to try and shop Tebow ahead of the new season.
Having been linked with a move to Australia in recent weeks, Tebow is clearly keen to make an impression with his current franchise, and perhaps those looking-on questioning his work ethic and commitment.
While it is admirable that he will be present for the voluntary workouts starting on Monday, unfortunately for Tebow, it may not save his career in the league. It would appear the best thing for both parties concerned, would be a split sooner rather than later.
