Tim Tebow rumors: Jets expected to keep QB through NFL Draft

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

New York sounds like it's keeping Tebow for a while longer.

The New York Jets have been trying to trade Tim Tebow for months, but haven't been able to find a partner. Now, it appears the Jets will hold onto their backup quarterback at least until after the draft is over in April, according to ESPN.com.

Tebow has been on the rumored trading block since the offseason began, but so far the market has been slow to develop. The ex-Florida Gator didn't do much to impress last year, getting only a handful of reps and rarely throwing the football.

If Tebow is traded after the draft, it will likely be as a salary dump more than anything else. However, it's more possible that he's just released at this point with no teams showing any real interest.

Tebow, a former first round draft pick of the Denver Broncos, may well be on his third team in four years by the time training camp rolls around.
