Jets owner Woody Johnson claims Tim Tebow was "forced" on him

Former Broncos GM Ted Sundquist, who interviewed for the Jets GM job nine days ago, said owner Woody Johnson told him the Tebow trade wasn't his idea. Johnson said the trade was "forced" on him and team president Neil Glat.

Johnson and Glat are added to a growing list of Jets sources who never wanted Tebow. Rex Ryan also washed his hands of it, saying that he would have played Tebow if he thought the backup QB could help the team win.

Johnson seems to have cast blame for the Tebow drama on former GM Mike Tannenbaum, who got the ax  after the Jets' disappointing season.

The Jets are expected to part ways with Tebow next month.
