Tebow's remarks came on the heels of the Jets announcing they are signing a fourth quarterback for the team.
How did Tebow react to the news?
"I may not know what my future is in football, but I am positive about who directs my life and that is Jesus Christ," he said.
The new offensive co-ordinator Marty Mornhingweg for the Jets didn't have an answer as to whether Tebow will be with the team next year, but he said he has conferred with the Christian leader about his role if he does return next season with the team.
Tebow confirmed that saying the two had exchanged ideas about things the team could do if he does return to the Jets next year. But he received no assurances he would return in the wake of news the New York team has signed a fourth quarterback to the roster.
The Jets announced they have signed David Garrard this week as the team's fourth quarterback. In the past Garrard played quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Mornhinweg now has to decide the roles of the four quarterbacks including Mark Sanchez, Greg McElroy, Garrard and Tebow. Sanchez was the starter for most of last season until the Jets season plummeted into oblivion with a series of losses. NFL teams generally only retain three quarterbacks.
"I'm excited to coach all of our players including Tim. We had a long discussion. He's got my thoughts on the situation, and he has some thoughts as well. If he's on this football team, which he is right now, I would do it a certain way," Mornhinweg said recently.
Mornhingweg was complimentary of the son of Christian missionaries, saying, "What (Tebow) did in Denver a year ago was something else. The man can play football. How you utilize him will certainly be the key. Just talking in general with quarterbacks, the decision making is the key, as well as accuracy and timing so he certainly has some of that. It'll be interesting to see exactly where he's at."
Tebow has been the subject of heavy criticism by certain New York sportswriters who have attacked him for speaking at Liberty University this past weekend and agreeing to speak at First Baptist Church of Dallas head by Dr. Robert Jeffress.
Noted Christian author Eric Metaxas tweeted, "We should support Brother Tebow."
Despite all the adversity he has faced, Tebow has remained strong in his faith and his teachings about Jesus Christ.
