Tim Tebow: Report of trade request from Jets untrue

Tim Tebow would like you to pay no mind to any talk he's already plotting his escape route from the New York Jets.

Schein: Still skeptical about Jets?
Mark Sanchez and the Jets proved critics wrong in Week 1 win. Can they do it again? Adam Schein takes a look. More ...

Despite coming off a season opener in which he played a nominal role, Tebow said a report on his hypothetical trade demand is "about as true as the report I live in Hoboken," according to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post.

On Thursday, Gary Myers of the New York Daily News speculated that Tebow could be one-and-done in New York. He included a provocative quote from the oft-provocative "NFL source."

"I think he will be a good soldier," the source said. "At the end of the year, I think he will express those concerns to the Jets. He will want to move on. The one thing about Tebow is he is the quintessential team player. He would never do anything that is going to undermine the team. But he's football-aholic. It's in his blood."

No word if Tebow will seek treatment for his football-aholism. Maybe Rex Ryan can stage an intervention.
