With the trade deadline today at 4PM ET, there is no chance that Tim Tebow is not about to be traded, reports the NY Post’s Brian Costello who spoke with a source about the matter.
There was a report by a Jacksonville TV station on Tuesday night that the Jets and Jaguars were talking about a trade to send Tebow to his hometown team. A source said that report is not true.
The Post reported last week the Jets would not trade Tebow before the trade deadline, which was pushed back to today at 4 p.m. because of Hurricane Sandy.

In addition to that, yesterday Adam Schefter told ESPN SportsCenter viewers that a trade for Tebow was “not gonna happen. I never expected that the Jaguars would trade for Tebow now that they are into the season. Ironically, Gabbert might not have been great (55.6% 1,209 yards, 5.84 YPA, 7 TDs 3 INTs 17 SK), but the truth is that he’s been better in a number of statistical areas than Mark Sanchez (52.9%, 1,736 yards, 6.38 YPA, 10 TDs 8 INTs 18SK) has been … and it’s not exactly as if Gabbert is stacked with talent at the WR position either.
The Jaguars might be struggling to find their place, just like the Jets … but the one thing that might be more defined than the Jets is their quarterback situation.
