So far, Tebow just a quarterback with Gang Green


Tim Tebow's focus has strictly been on backup quarterback duties during the beginning of the Jets' OTAs, according to sources of the Star-Ledger. While that will certainly change as the offseason continues, it's first things first for the Jets.

New York brought in Tebow to back up starter Mark Sanchez and more or less run offensive coordinator Tony Sparano's Wildcat/option packages.

However, Gang Green is obviously trying to get Tebow settled into the offense from a a signal-caller perspective before putting the extras on his plate.

The Jets signed Drew Stanton in March but let him go after acquiring Tebow via trade, and second-year player Greg McIlroy sits at No. 3 on the quarterback depth chart.
