Looking to add more punch to their passing game during last week's NFL Draft, the Jets grabbed West Virginia QB Geno Smith in the second round.
The Jets acquired Tebow, and the mania that surrounds him, via a trade with the Denver Broncos last season, but it appears he general manager John Idzik wants to go in a different direction beyond starting quarterback Mark Sanchez.
Tebow, who was expected to bring a multifaceted attack to the Jets from the QB position, was ineffective running the football, gaining just 102 yards on 32 carries for the season. As a passer, Tebow struggled in limited opportunities with just 39 yards gained through the air for the season.
