    "Here's one other team that has discussed trading for Tim Tebow, even if it is considered a longshot: the Jets."

    JI Exclusive, Transcript of that conversation:

    Tannenbaum: So guys, what do you think about trading for Tebow?

    (Everyone in Room bursts into laughter)

    Tannenbaum: Okay, moving on.

    if he converts to a FB/HB/TE hybrid he could be pretty interesting in this system. But NOT as a QB. As long as it's clear will NOT be a QB I'm all for it and think he would actually produce well here.

    not paying for the hype, so I wouldn't spend a lot on him.

    I know everyone is going to laugh it off, but in a specific role he would do damage in what will be our style of offense.

    also, he would probably do WONDERS for the locker room...His teammates really seem to rally around his personality.

    He would produce well for any team NOT as a QB

    Jeez, Sparano would be ALL kinds of wet with Tebow as his wildcat specialist

    Knowing Tannebaum all he did was inquire what it would cost (pick wise)...He's just doing his due diligence...Or because he always says that reporters always attach the Jets to situations like this because it creates a buzz for a large market..

    I'd be more interested in Namath's take on Tebow joining us than Schefter's........Oh yeah, and get Namath drunk first.

    The problem is, you can't play Tebow as anything but a QB after last year. The minute he walks into Jets camp the media would turn it into a QB controversy, if for nothing more then to sell papers. The first time Sanchez has a bad quarter you'd have fans begging for Tebow. You're basically putting Mark in a situation where he's constantly looking over his shoulder (and no, that's not a good thing, playing tight and scared to make mistakes doesn't work in this league). It's just a bad idea on so many levels.

    dont care what the media does...the jets don't have to play him as a QB bc the media says so...also, we'd in essence put pressure on Sanchez without really threatening his job....although we would know that there is a guy who would probably seamlessly fit into what Sparano could do if needed.

    so isn't that killing 2 birds with one stone? let people beg for tebow if sanchez is flat....he's at that point anyway...if he comes out flat this season tebow or no tebow sanchez is going to be blasted...

    Tim Tebow would be a bad move because he can't throw.
