One reason the New York Jets may have worked out free-agent QB Kevin O'Connell (Chargers) is because there is a chance the team could trade QB Tim Tebow and make QB Greg McElroy the No. 2 quarterback. Head coach Rex Ryan already is on record as saying the wildcat offense, featuring Tebow, hasn't been as successful as he expected. There also have been rumblings that Tebow is frustrated by his smaller-than-anticipated role. He has played only 50 offensive snaps in six games, making more of an impact as a personal protector on the punt team than on offense. As a result, it has become quite clear that Ryan doesn't know how to use Tebow or never wanted him in the first place.
