Tim Tebow's QB coach says Mark Sanchez should be Jets starter

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Steve Clarkson thinks Tim Tebow should start, just not in New York.

Tim Tebow's quarterback coach, Steve Clarkson, has been campaigning for his pupil to start in the NFL, but he believes Mark Sanchez should be under center for the Jets, according to Marc Sessler of NFL.com. Clarkson added that if Tebow were to become a starter in the NFL, then it would be on a different team.

That may happen soon, as the Jets could release Tebow after next week's NFL Draft. The team is hoping that the trade market for the former Heisman winner will pick up after the draft dust settles. Despite the rumors, the quarterback still showed up to New York's minicamp this week.

Sessler says that Clarkson doesn't believe himself to be Tebow's personal coach, but rather an adviser brought in to offer an opinion. That opinion has been that Tebow can be a starter in the NFL and has fixed his throwing motion. Clarkson tweeted his proof in the form of an odd picture that may or may not prove that Tebow is actually a dinosaur.

The Jets sent two draft picks to Denver for Tebow, but he played sparingly behind Sanchez in 2012. Tebow attempted just eight passes and was used primarily in the wildcat formation, where he ran the ball 32 times.
