Jets | Tim Tebow not forced on owner

Former New York Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum may have been the driving force behind the acquisition of QB Tim Tebow; however, Tebow was not forced on owner Woody Johnson, according to a league source with direct knowledge of the trade. "He owns the team," the source said. "All he had to do was say 'no.' Nothing is ever forced on Woody." The source said once Tannenbaum came up with the idea, several members of the Jets organization tried to talk him out of the trade, saying Tebow was not an accurate passer; however, Tannenbaum was not swayed.
