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."

It was not a blockbuster trade. He is being tossed aside for a few low round draft picks. It is insulting. A block buster would mean a few early round picks. He is only overrated by those that think he is any good. He has no long term prospects in the NFL. He had one really lucky season and the Broncos obviously agree.

Great journalism again TMZ. Is it easier to just say the word "sources" than it is to report the actual person's name that supposidly made these statements. Must be a slow news day.

Man, that sucks for Drew Stanton who signed with them so he wouldn't be a third stringer who never dressed. Hope he ends up back in Detroit if Shaun Hill leaves. #trade

I guess all that talk out of Jacksonville was just that. All this hype for a crap QB. What a joke.

"If nothing else, he will make us a more holy squad."

You don't need some other player to do that. Its all on you. What a stupid statement.

Mr. Ed,(elway) can't endure the drama....Peyton's low key, and one hit away from a chair...

Rex and Sancho, had to watch the playoffs from the couch. Just like you Tebow haters.... Sancho "Hey Rex, pass the dip, and keep the bitches toes out of it"

You sit there and you thump your bible, and you say your prayers, and it didn't get you anywhere! Talk about your psalms, talk about John 3:16 ... Austin 3:16 says I just trade your as!"

A divided locker room...a divided fan base...Tebow is a celebrity, not a football player who just LOVES the cameras. Football is a rough game and Tebow publicly promoting his religion week after week is is disgusting and a distraction from the game. One can pray without kneeling!! I wish people could see through all the BS. A pure travesty for the Jets....sit back and watch the upcoming show:-)
