Mark Sanchez has been teammates with Tim Tebow for approximately four days, and the New York Jets' quarterback says he's pleased so far with his new backup, according to the New York Post.
"He's been as advertised, as good of a guy, if not better, than anybody said," Sanchez said at a paid appearance last night in White Plains, N.Y., in between offseason workouts. "So, he's been a great addition so far. I'm thrilled to work with him."
When the Jets acquired Tebow in a trade with the Denver Broncos last month, there was speculation that his arrival would cause tension between Sanchez, the starter for three years running, and Tebow, the sensational QB who led the Broncos to the playoffs last year. But so far, Sanchez says there's been no friction between the two quarterbacks.
"From a competitor standpoint, he's great," Sanchez said. "He's what you want in an offseason program -- working hard, competing with the guy in the weight room. This is a big, strong guy, so it's good for me."
