Tim Tebow Expects He And Mark Sanchez Will Work Together

Newly introduced New York Jet, Tim Tebow, says he’s ready to work together with incumbent quarterback Mark Sanchez, according to ESPN.

Tebow said he is ready to work "to make the team a little bit better." Tebow anticipates a "great working relationship" with Sanchez, with whom he already has spoken, ESPN reports.

Sanchez and Tebow have interacted a few times prior to Tebow moving to the Jets. Sanchez even hosted him on his official visit to University of Southern California when he was choosing which school to play for.

The Jets plan on making Tebow their No. 2 quarterback, and he will be involved in a wildcat package as well as having a small role on special teams.

Tebow took over for quarterback Kyle Orton in the second half of last season, turning the Broncos’ fortune and leading them to the playoffs. He sparked the Broncos to a 7-4 record to end the season throwing for a 46.5 completion percentage, 12 touchdowns and six interceptions. He also ran for 660 yards and six touchdowns. 12 touchdowns for 1,729 yards in 14 games.
