Nothing surprising there. Get the Jets involved and expect the bizarre.
Just how Tebow would fit in on the Jets may be a mystery only solved by Ryan. He's the one who declared Sanchez his quarterback, and he's the one who helped reward him with a new $40.5 million contract earlier this month despite a shaky and unproductive season.
Now the Jets try to add Tebow, but why?
To make some noise, for one thing. The other team in New York won the Super Bowl, but New Yorkers now can spend the rest of the offseason talking about how Tebow will fit in or why the Jets went after him. It may have been a move born of desperation but, should Ryan and the front office finally land Tebow, they will have created another act for a city that loves a circus.
There hasn't been a NFL game played in more than six weeks. There won't be another played for real for another five months. The lure of the league is such, though, that it no longer matters.
Give us a big free agent chase, and we forget about baseball. Throw in a Tebow controversy and a bounty scandal, and basketball isn't nearly as interesting.
Tebow Time may have run its course. But it's now NFL Time, all the time.
