Tim Tebow

NY Jets Players DIVIDED

Over Blockbuster Trade

3/21/2012 12:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0321_teebow_jets_getty_exTim Tebow's impending arrival to the NY Jets came as a complete shock to several members of the organization ... and TMZ has learned the news has already created a rift between the players.

Sources connected to the Jets tell TMZ ... a bunch of players were working out in the gym at the Jets training facility when the news broke that Tebow had been traded.

We're told several players got into a pretty heated conversation about the move ... with multiple Jets complaining he's "overrated."

But Tebow DOES have supporters ... we're told multiple players argued that he's a good guy with real potential ... and will be a good backup for Mark Sanchez.

As one player put it, "If nothing else, he will make us a more holy squad."

He is overrated, if he weren't the Broncos would have gotten better than just a 4th round pick for him.

Tim Tebow is ALL hype.

He made a 'fun' story, but he's no player. Everyone will see that later this year.

So much for that brotherhood thing amongst the players of every team... Give the guy a chance before you complain about him!

Mark Sanchez is trembling right now. They just signed him to a $40 mil deal now this. Its a wrap for Sanchez. At least he gets a guaranteed $20 mil of the $40. Enjoy the bench Mark

Nice TMZ, start trouble in the locker room in the off season. Stay away from sports TMZ, you're clueless.

You guys should stick to your Lindsey Lohan/Kim Kardashian/Larry David in a parking garage stories. Calling this a "blockbuster" trade is ridiculous. A projected backup QB traded for a fourth-round draft pick. If Tebow were a Muslim, the story wouldn't have been worth reporting at all. Plus, the deal might be voided due to language in Tebow's contract.
