If Tim Tebow has a limited role backing up Mark Sanchez at quarterback this season at the New York Jets, a source expects him to approach the front office about a possible trade.
“I think he will be a good soldier,” one NFL source said Wednesday. “At the end of the year, I think he will express those concerns to the Jets. He will want to move on. The one thing about Tebow is he is the quintessential team player. He would never do anything that is going to undermine the team. But he’s football-aholic. It’s in his blood.”
Tebow's contracts runs through 2014 and wants to be a starting quarterback again.
“Absolutely he will talk to the Jets or we will have misevaluated his competitive nature,” the source said. “There comes a point, where they get it and realize this is who I am and just accept that role. Tebow is not there yet.”
