Tebow has played in just 60 of the Jets’ 545 offensive snaps, contributing only 110 total yards of offense this season and prompting many to speculate that he would be dealt to another team in need of a quarterback, like the Jacksonville Jaguars. (Meanwhile, both the Jags front office and their fans insist they are fine with their current QB situation).
But Woody, Rex, Tony and the gang had other plans, and opted to not only keep Tim on the team, but to do absolutely nothing to upgrade the team the team this week outside of releasing two players. The Jets also insist that Tim is a valuable member of the team, opposing defenses spend all kinds of important time preparing for challenges he may or may not present, and the backup quarterback could see an expanded role in the coming weeks.
Haha. Okay. Sureeee.
In other Tebow news that basically broke the internet, Tebow and “actress” Camilla Belle are apparently a couple, according to TMZ. Neither Belle or Tebow’s reps have confirmed the story, which surfaced after the pair was spotted bowling in Jacksonville a few days ago. You can find out more about this thrilling new development here, here or here.
Who is Camilla Belle you ask? Good question. She dated Joe Jonas after he cheated on Taylor Swift with her, according to Swift. (I really just wrote that. Gah). Oh yeah, she also was in a couple of movies, like 10,000 BC and When a Stranger Calls. The more you know. Or something.
- LB Marcus Dowtin has been fined $15,750 by the league for his hit on Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore. The play resulted in a roughing passer penalty last week.
- FYI : Pro Bowl voting is underway. If you feel inclined to nominate a Jet into the Pro Bowl this year – and honestly, not too many of them have earned it – than get to the voting. Might I suggest Antonio Cromartie and Nick Folk? They are certainly deserving.
