FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Tim Tebow has been waived by the Jets, the end of an unsuccessful one-season experiment in New York.
Coach Rex Ryan said in a statement put out by the team in announcing the move Monday morning: "Unfortunately, things did not work out the way we all had hoped."
The Heisman Trophy winner attempted just eight passes after his ballyhooed arrival in a trade from the Denver Broncos in March 2012. He threw for 39 yards and rushed 32 times for 102 yards.
Meanwhile, starter Mark Sanchez struggled amid constant questions about Tebow's playing time. The Jets drafted quarterback Geno Smith in the second round of the NFL draft Friday.
Tebow had led the Broncos to the playoffs in 2011 but became expendable when Denver acquired Peyton Manning.
