New York Jets hopeful to find suitor for Tim Tebow

The New York Jets have an exceedingly slim chance at trading Tim Tebow. That won't stop them from trying.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday on "NFL Total Access" there's no buzz connecting Tebow to another NFL team at this time. This is an unfortunate reality for the Jets, who sunk two draft picks and $2.5 million to obtain Tebow from the Denver Broncos last year.

To give up Tebow for nothing would represent a substantial personnel failure.

Tebow reportedly plans to attend voluntary workouts if he's still on the roster. Rapoport said the Jets are open to keeping Tebow in-house for minicamp and OTAs with the hopes that a suitor eventually emerges.

And while Tebow might have a role in early team activities -- however awkward that might be -- Rapoport has been told it remains "highly unlikely" Tebow will be on the Jets by the time training camp begins in July.

To which we say: What's the point? The Jets would get a seventh-round pick (at best) for Tebow. Is that worth the distraction of having him in the building when your franchise is desperate for a fresh start?
