Tim Tebow to Seahawks is not happening
Seattle is in the market for a backup quarterback after trading Matt Flynn to Oakland last week for two draft picks. Since the offense is running more zone-read plays, the thinking was that they would want a quarterback who can run to backup Russell Wilson.
The Seattle Times’ Danny O’Neil says the team is considering bringing back former backup Seneca Wallace and also planning to look at Tyler Thigpen. He also says the Seahawks looked into acquiring Tebow, but that the quarterback is “not thought to be a consideration.”
Tebow is currently under contract with the New York Jets even though few believe he will be with the team when the season begins. He is due to make $2.58 million, which is much more than any team would want to pay him for what he offers. Maybe some team will bring him in for a look after he is released by the Jets, but if New York thinks they can actually get something for him in a trade, they are kidding themselves.
Shockingly, the Jets’ mental game of saying they’re planning to keep Tebow hasn’t scared anyone into offering up draft picks to pry him out of their hands.
