Tim Tebow’s arrival in New York already has agitated one New York Jets quarterback -Drew Stanton.

The veteran backup, who signed a one-year, $1.25 million deal to be the No. 2 quarterback, has asked to be traded or released, a league source declared. NFL lines.

The NY Jets are at present making an attempt to trade Stanton, a source declared.

Stanton is said to be unhappy because he was guaranteed the No. 2 job and turned down additional lucrative chances with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs to play for the New York Jets. He received a $500,000 signing compensation, but he may have a tough time locating a new team because the backup roles are filling up.

CEO Mike Tannenbaum confirmed that Stanton was to be Mark Sanchez’s primary backup, but the Jets modified the strategy when they acquired in a trade with the Denver Broncos.

Tebow was traded to the Jets around an proposal from the Jacksonville Jaguars afterwards the Jets agreed to pay $2.53 million of a $5 million income advance due Tebow, after the issue of who would pay that advance almost unraveled the trade and gave Jacksonville one last shot at bringing the ex-Florida Gators hero back home.

Jacksonville offered the Denver Broncos $3 million towards Tebow’s income advance and a 4th-round draft pick, league resources asserted. That pick, based totally on the draft “value chart” that teams use to ascertain the correct way to use their picks, is more valuable than the picks the Jets offered, resources expounded.

The NY Jets traded their 4th- and 6th-round picks to Denver in exchange for Tebow and the Broncos’ 7th-round choice.

The Jets will compensate the Broncos $1.5 million in 2012 and $1.03 million in 2013, a league source recounted. The payments will be made in 1/17th weekly installments.

The trade of Tebow to the New York Jets is the 1st time in NFL history that a quarterback in his 1st or 2nd year started and won a game in the playoffs and then modified teams that offseason. Tebow led the Denver Broncos to a triumph over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the wild-card round of the 2011 postseason.

Tannenbaum said the Jets not just purchased Tebow to be Sanchez’s backup but to be the player to run the team’s variation of the Wildcat, an offense that both Coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano are big supporters of running. The Jets’ Wildcat offense sputtered in 2011 after Brad Smith left as a independent agent to sign with the Buffalo Bills. NFL betting lines.

The Jets’ GM said the Jets’ usage of the Wildcat will be game-strategy specific, but “if our offense is sputtering and we have 3 three-and-outs and we roll this out there and it’s profitable, who knows.

Stanton, a t3rd-stringer last season with the Lions, picked the New York Jets due to the opportunity to move up to No. 2.

Besides Sanchez, Tebow and Stanton, the Jets have 2nd-year quarterback Greg McElroy, drafted last season out of Alabama. He spent last season on injured reserve with a thumb injury, but the team loves his upside and desires to develop him.
