Urban Meyer Thinks Jets Should Let Tim Tebow Play

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer, who coached Tim Tebow at Florida, thinks the New York Jets should let Tebow play, according to NBC Sports.

“Let him play, just let him play,” Meyer said when asked about his former star quarterback.

Meyer added that the spread offense that Tebow executed in college would  “absolutely” work in the NFL.

Meyer then told ESPN that the Broncos were too conservative with the way they used Tebow.  However, when the Broncos’ offense were at their best, such as in the playoff game against Pittsburgh, the legendary head coach felt that Tebow was finally given the freedom to play his own way.

In 2007, Tim Tebow became coach Meyer’s first Heisman Trophy winner.  The following year, Meyer and Tebow led the Gators to a 13-1 record and  BCS National Championship over the Oklahoma Sooners.
