Jets fans will have to live with Tim Tebow on their roster for at least a little longer than they might like.
ESPN reports the team will not release Tebow prior to the beginning of the trade window on March 12, and will hope to unload him after that day. The problem for the Jets is that there doesn’t appear to be much of a trade market for the quarter-back. New Jaguars GM David Caldwell said last month that he “can’t imagine a scenario” in which his team would trade for Tebow.
He would likely command only a mid- to late-round draft pick. If released, the cap hit would be about $3 million.
