Jets' owner weighs in on Tebow

The SportsXchange

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson has committed to backup quarterback Tim Tebow for three year, and offered support for starter Mark Sanchez.

Despite speculation that the Jets could try to trade Tebow after this season, Johnson told CNBC Wednesday that the team will "absolutely" keep him for the duration of his contract.

He added that he and head coach Rex Ryan haven't discussed inserting Tebow as the starter.

The Jets owner wouldn't say the situation would never change because "never is a long, long time period," but offered that he sees "the same things in Mark Sanchez that I saw when I first met him."
