Greg McElroy was named Jets starter following Mark Sanchez' five-turnover performance Monday night, and apparently that's not sitting well with Tim Tebow. According to a report from the New York Daily News, Tebow will ask to be traded or released after the season if he does not get more of an opportunity in the last two games.
Jets coach Rex Ryan said Sanchez respected the coach's decision to bench him, but Ryan has not publicly addressed the Tebow situation.
"I want to put Greg out there," Ryan said Tuesday. "I'm going to put Greg out there. In my opinion, that's what's best for our team."
Meanwhile, a Jets fan who sent Sanchez death threats on Twitter following the team's Monday night loss to the Titans told the New York Daily News that he wasn't serious and doesn't understand why people are angry about his behavior.
The man, who identified himself as 25-year-old Bravee Grandcu, said he lost $700 when Sanchez fumbled away the Jets' chances at winning, and he claims Sanchez did it on purpose, so he tweeted:
KILL YO SELF TONIGHT! OR IMMA DO IT FOR YOU WEDNESDAY AT PRACTICE, and, DON’T COME TO PRACTICE WEDNESDAY I PROMISE YOU BULLETS EVERYWHERE. He also tweeted a picture of himself wearing a Jets hat with the message, TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT YOUR KILLER!!
Grandcu told the Daily News that he doesn't own a gun and was never going to be violent.
"I don't know why everyone's making such a big deal about the death threats," he said. "I guess it's just because he's Mark Sanchez and he's famous."
