Don’t call it a comeback. No really, don’t. Just one season after being traded from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets, a source close to the team says quarterback Tim Tebow will not be returning next year.

“The fallout surrounding the Jets’ quarterbacking drama generated even more buzz yesterday with reports Tebow and the Jets could part ways at the end of the season.” 

Newsday reports a league source says the Jets will try to trade both former starting QB Mark Sanchez and Tebow during the offseason. But it says if a partner can’t be found, the team will release Tebow before free agency begins in March. 

While many predicted the Tebow experiment in New York was doomed to fail, New York Daily News says he never really got a chance.

“Tebow, who led the Broncos to the playoffs last season and a wild-card win over the Steelers, had only 70 offensive snaps this season, and didn’t play a full series until Monday’s 14-10 loss in Tennessee that dropped the Jets from playoff contention.” 

ESPN’s John Clayton says he wouldn’t be surprised if the phones were cold for Tebow, especially since he failed to win the starting job in New York after Mark Sanchez’s meltdown.

“Could that mean going to the CFL? Very possibly. There is no doubt that Tebow wants to stay in the NFL, but I think there could be a lot of empty phone calls waiting for him as far as if he is released, and there’s clearly not going to be any trade.” 

Alongside the possibility of playing in the Canadian Football League, a writer for the Detroit Free Press points out four other possible destinations where Tebow could end up.

“The obvious choice” — Jacksonville. “Tebow's hometown team is struggling at quarterback … ” right now. The Kansas City Chiefs might also be interested after what can only be described as a disaster of a season. And “If Tebow is willing to accept a backup role … ” he might find himself a new home with the New England Patriots. Lastly, the San Diego Chargers are likely to clean house, and could use a fresh look to revive their hopes of playoff contention. 

With Tebow and Sanchez’s now near-certain departure, some are reporting Jets’ coach Rex Ryan is interested in acquiring Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick after the end of the season.
