Or go sign one. Because it's what normal teams do who don't want a byline.
This is all just chatter, it's meaningless for the game. Tebow's not going to be playing RB - maybe more wildcat but that's it. It's just Rex feeling the need to make proclamations.
Note: I by no means think Rex is a bad coach (he's a good coach) nor do i count the Jets out of this game (why not?), but when he makes his weekly LOOK AT ME statement, why do people listen?
I'm pretty sure they did get a RB off the practice squad. His name is Jonathan Grimes.
I agree Tebow probably won't be playing RB. But a reporter asked him about it, so Rex just said it is a possibility. He was pretty vague about it. I don't really see it as a proclamation.
