So, this is what Tim Tebow was brought in for when he was traded from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets.
The much-hyped backup quarterback took snaps with the second team offense during Jets practice on Thursday morning and the Jets unveiled a specific package for Tebow, reports ESPN.com. Teams now know that when Tebow is in the game, more than likely he is going to get the football. Head coach Rex Ryan even told the defense that Tebow was "live" on running plays.
In a four-play sequence, he ran for two touchdowns and tossed another on a play-action bootleg. The Jets unveiled a Wildcat-like package, with Tebow taking a direct snap out of shotgun and running 2 yards up the middle for a touchdown.
The Jets were using Tebow as a protector on the punt team before today.
