IMO Tebow has shown that he can win in the NFL and he even showed some flashes when given multiple plays in a row at QB (see Pittsburgh, Tennessee). Maybe Rex gives in to the GM in this situation because he wants to keep his job. The irony would be delicious. It's still possible until it isn't...
Okay. I'll play.
Why do you suddenly think that Tebow will show anything in training camp that would show the coaching staff that they wouldn't have to scrap their playbook and run his college offense in order for him to be half way effective? And what new OC is going to want to do that? Tebow's reportedly a horrible practice player, to the point where the Jets were shocked at how bad he looked. I mean, come on - he made Sanchez look good.
As for Tebow's contract, it was inherited from Denver. The Jets save 1.5 million if they cut him. Considering they dont view him as a QB and 1.5 is a lot for a punt protector, I'm guessing he is cut as soon as he is allowed to be.
