The NFL needed Tim Tebow information, so they turned to JetNation.com, thanks to the excellent work by Dennis Agapito.

Tim Tebow-New York Jets divorce would be complex
101

So Tim Tebow is "terrible." The New York Jets only have one quarterback, and that's Mark Sanchez. (That's Jets guard Matt Slauson's quote on the record.)

No matter what Jets coach Rex Ryan says about his team's punting statistics, the Tebow acquisition hasn't worked. The Jets aren't confident enough to play Tebow as a starter. Tebow isn't very effective in his Wildcat role. He's a non-factor.

The Jets are stunned Tim Tebow isn't a good practice player? Should have done their homework, Jeff Darlington says. More ...

Jeff Darlington of NFL.com and NFL Network says the Jets should just cut Tebow if they aren't going to use him. That's not going to happen during the 2012 season -- Tebow has too much value as a backup quarterback -- but it's an interesting thought for 2013.

Will Tebow be around next season? There are a lot of variables here.

Salary

JetNation.com did a great breakdown of Tebow's contract earlier this year. The short, short version: Tebow is due $2.08 million next season. That's a very reasonable salary for a backup quarterback. If the Jets truly believe in Tebow in that role, it makes sense to keep him.

Front office

Ryan and general manager Mike Tannenbaum brought in Tebow. Will they be around next season? We would guess that Ryan can survive just about anything for one more season. Tannenbaum -- the architect of this team -- could be in hotter water. It's possible Jets owner Woody Johnson will give both men a pass because of injuries to the 2012 team.

A new regime unlikely would want Tebow. That's just usually how these things work.

Distraction

After one season with Tebow, would the Jets really want to keep him in a backup role anyway? They clearly don't believe in him as a potential starter. They could decide he's not worth the trouble for such a role player.

Trade or release?

We believe the Jets would have to release Tebow outright if they wanted to move on from him in the offseason. Remember: Backing up Mark Sanchez was the best job Tebow could get. Only the Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars were interested in his services, and reports indicated Tebow preferred New York. (The Jaguars' coaching staff reportedly didn't want Tebow; ownership did.)

Even though Tebow hasn't started this season, we believe he chose wisely. The Jets were his best chance for a meaningful role. It's not like there will be teams lining up to give him a better opportunity. I don't need to talk to an anonymous Jet to tell you that.

FWIW the numbers are a bit off on the deal. His cap hit this year is $2.1 million and next year will be 2.586875. Cimini basically got the numbers wrong or backwards in his initial report which Dennis used. The whole thing with Tebow is that his money escalates based on playing time which I still think is a big reason why the Jets dont play him. If he hits a certain threshold this year his cap hit in 2013 jumps by around $5 million and $6.5 million in 2014. If he starts in 2013 but doesnt hit the escalator this year his 2014 salary jumps by the full $11.5 million.

That said thumbs up on the NFL.com mention.

This is why I stick to spouting off NBA salary cap numbers.
