Tim Tebow won't be able to count Boomer Esiason among his legion of fans.
The retired quarterback and NFL analyst said on his morning radio show on WFAN with co-host Craig Carton in New York, "I’m just telling you right now, I would (cut him), and I’ll tell you why I would. It’s not in any way, shape or form — I think — benefiting this team.”
Esiason called the trade for Tebow a "major mistake" and indicated that his presence only hinders current starter Mark Sanchez by creating a quarterback controversy, not to mention the circus atmosphere that surrounds the Jets camp in large part because of Tebow's popularity.
Esiason doesn't think Tebow is effective enough as a passer to even make a Wildcat package work successfully.
“All you have to do is watch him throw the ball,” said Esiason. “Just watch him.”
