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."

We all know what Tebow is worth now.. 4th round draft pick, he took Denver to the playoff's you would think he would be worth more than that. The media in New York will tear him apart.

LOL...TMZ covering sports "drama".

Stick to following who Sanchez is banging instead of trying to insinuate a rift in the Jets camp over a deal that probably isn't even going to happen.

All you idiots who think Tebow was the reason the Broncos made the playoffs are ****in morons. It was all about their defense, plain and simple. The Broncos practically had to beg another team to take this guy. All you religious freaks go away and keep your sorry ass beliefs to yourself.
