Breaking News:

Tebow to join teammates for 'Jets West' workouts

The SportsXchange

Quarterback Tim Tebow will participate in the "Jets West" passing camp in southern California with starter Mark Sanchez and other teammates in a few weeks.

Sanchez invited Tebow to the weeklong workouts that Sanchez and his family have staged the past two offseasons at Mission Viejo High School, where Sanchez played before going to USC, the New York Daily News reported.

Tebow wasn't invited to a similar workout organized two months ago in Orlando by wide receiver Santonio Holmes that included Sanchez, Dustin Keller and Patrick Turner.

"It's just so important to spend time together as much as possible," third-string quarterback Greg McElroy said. "It's a good opportunity for us to get out of our element and do something social as a group with the benefit of working and great weather. It's really a good time for us. It's a lot of football and a lot of fun."

The workouts, which are intended to build team chemistry, will take place in late June or early July.

Other players who will join the three quarterbacks in attendance, according to the Daily News, are running backs Shonn Greene, Joe McKnight and John Conner; wide receivers Jeremy Kerley, Turner and Scotty McKnight; and tight ends Jeff Cumberland, Josh Baker and Keller. It's uncertain whether Holmes will be there.

The Jets' minicamp is June 12-14. The team starts training camp July 26.
