Charley Casserly of NFL Network says the Jets should get rid of their popular backup quarterback by the Oct. 30 trade deadline. Casserly was a former general manager of the Houston Texans and Washington Redskins.
I think a natural move would be for the New York Jets to trade Tim Tebow to the Seattle Seahawks. What the Jets envisioned for Tebow does not seem to have worked; they simply aren't using him. Now is the time to eliminate the distraction. Seattle, which could certainly use another quarterback, has a shot at the playoffs but is struggling to score touchdowns in the red zone. That's one thing I think Tebow can do.
I just don’t see this becoming a reality. Not only did Jets owner Woody Johnson publicly commit to Tebow, but Seattle has its quarterback of the present and future in Russell Wilson. A potential trade doesn’t make a lot of sense for either side.
I wouldn’t be surprised if a team in AFC East makes a move before the trade deadline. But it’s doubtful it will be the Jets with Tebow.
