There could not be a more blatant statement made that Rex never wanted a damn thing to do with Tebow than this. I, for one, am glad. We already know for certain Tebow sucks. We might as well try to find out how much McElroy sucks (although it's a bit late even for that).
I think that what is most obviously needed in the Jets FO is a 'no' man. Someone that can just tell Woody straight to his face that this type of crap is a bad idea and that he'd be a moron to pursue it. Either Tannenbaum doesn't have the stomach for that move, or he's too dumb.
