Report: Tim Tebow to attend Jets' voluntary workouts

Tim Tebow still is a member of the New York Jets. Until he's told otherwise, the quarterback will continue to operate as if he remains in the Jets' plans. (Even if he's not.)

Brian Costello of the New York Post reported Monday that Tebow will report to the Jets' voluntary workouts next week if he still is on the team's roster.

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.

Meanwhile, the Jets would take on a level of risk if Tebow does attend the workouts. A season-ending injury would put the Jets on the hook for Tebow's entire base-salary for 2013.

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.
