Rex Ryan: Mark Sanchez the starter for now, Tim Tebow in the mix
Ryan said the team needs to get better at that position and that Sanchez’s spot as the starter is not guaranteed.
“The first snap, he’ll be the guy running out there first,” Ryan said of Sanchez, via ESPN.com.“But there’s going to be competition at that spot, there’s no question about it.”
“He’s on the roster, and he’ll get a chance to compete,” Ryan said about Tebow. “We’ll see how the offseason plays out, but right now Tim is on our roster.”
Whether Tebow is on the roster in the next couple of months is certainly up for debate. Tebow’s name has swirled in trade rumors for the past two months and it was reported that the team tried to trade him during the scouting combine. The team could also release him.
