Tebow Takes Reporters' Questions after Jets Trade

Ad Feedback

The NFL's New York Jets held the largest news conference in their history Monday...for a backup quarterback.

The Jets introduced quarterback Tim Tebow to nearly 200 media members after the Denver Broncos traded him to the New York team last week.

Tebow talked humbly about his new football home, his relationship with starting Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, and his faith.

"I am excited about my role and opportunity here. I am excited to start working together," the NFL quarterback told reporters. "We will be able to encourage each other and will be stronger together than apart."

In response to reporters' questions about his now trademark kneeling to pray before the games, Tebow said as long as it makes people talk more about faith and prayer, it's okay with him if they call it "Tebowing."

"I'm not the first athlete to go down on one knee, but for some reason it's called Tebowing, and I'm not sure why," he said.

He also said he understands why the Broncos picked Peyton Manning over him, and he has no hard feelings.

Tebow handled the press conference with the same polite composure that has won over football fans around the country.
