Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Tebow likely to end up with Jaguars next season

The SportsXchange

New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow is a "virtual certainty" to play for the Jacksonville Jaguars next season, ESPN reported Sunday.

Tebow will reportedly be traded or released by the Jets at the end of the season. ESPN, citing league sources, reported that the Jets will honor Tebow's request to be released so he can become a free agent.

The Jaguars offered a fourth-round pick to the Denver Broncos in March and owner Shad Khan offered to pay the Broncos $3 million to get Tebow, but could not guarantee him playing time. Jacksonville was committed to Blaine Gabbert, which it drafted in the first round last year.

Instead, the former Florida star ended up going to the Jets for fourth- and sixth-round draft picks. The Broncos also paid the Jets $2.53 million.

Jacksonville is interested in Tebow again since Gabbert has struggled in his second year. Chad Henne recently took over as the starter.

Tebow has played very little with the Jets and was passed over in favor of second-year quarterback Greg McElroy when coach Rex Ryan benched Mark Sanchez as the starter this week.
