It's widely believed the Jets will release Tebow if they're unable to find a trade suitor. The team failed to find a role for the quarterback last season, and his absence from the offense became an unwelcome distraction during a 6-10 campaign.
Tebow knows he has no future with the Jets, making it understandable (even logical) if he decided to stay clear of Florham Park until his situation had more clarity. Apparently, he feels it better serves him to remain on the radar.
The Jets -- and Tebow -- probably are better off severing ties before any team activities take place. If there ever was a case of both sides needing a clean break, this is it.
