When the New York Jets released backup quarterback Tim Tebow in late April, the two-time national champion in college suddenly found himself in a national silence. The phone simply didn’t ring. NFL teams appeared uninterested in signing a player whose 13-month stint with the Jets proved more distraction than production. Tebow took only 70 offensive snaps last season as the team languished to a 6-10 record. The general manager who acquired Tebow and the offensive coordinator who failed to use him were fired. Who would dare take a similar risk?
