08:08 AM ET 06.04 | Welcome to the club, Tim Tebow. [Tebow] told the Daily News that he will be attending Mark Sanchez's "Jets West" passing camp in Southern California in a few weeks. Sanchez, hoping to establish himself as the unquestioned leader of the offense, extended the invitation to his backup. Sanchez and Tebow, who have had their every move dissected to extreme levels ever since the backup QB arrived via a trade with Denver in March, will headline a group of skill position players that will participate in this annual rite of summer. Two months after Santonio Holmes didn't invite Tebow to Orlando for a few days of informal workouts with Sanchez, Dustin Keller and Patrick Turner, [Sanchez] made sure to include [Tebow].

Sounds like a short bus camp.

If Sanchez is going to be the leader, it makes sense to do so to establish himself this way. Additionally, if he's privy to any of Sparano's ideas of incorporating Tebow, then why not bring Tebow out to workout as that role player. Maybe he'll serve as a FB or TE in some sets. Only makes sense to make the most of all available assets.


Then again, this is the Jets. Sanchez knows that bringing Tebow along will draw media attention.

Maybe they're doing a Hard Knocks mini-series.

I bet Sanchez sneaks in media, to discuss how bad Tebow looks.

So Tebow is qualified to hold clipboards on BOTH coasts! What a weapon.

The key sentence in this article is Santonio Holmes not extending an invitation to Tebow. Team player does not equal Santonio Holmes. Just like last year these kind of players on the Jets team will kill them in the season. And oh yes, "JETS SUCK"!!!

The real salinity test will be Fireman Ed. Will he be leading Jets cheers while Tebow's on the field? At this point the most relevant thing going for the Jets is the Flight Crew.

Why are these clowns relevant, have they ever won anything besides a couple of playoff games?

Tell us how you really feel about the Jets....

Is it just me, or is everyone else also sick to death already over all the drama and hype surrounding Rex's Jest? It's like "Jersey Shore, Football Edition." I don't want to hear another thing about this idiotic clown parade until the season actually starts.

Well that right neighborly of them, or should I say him (Sanchez). I hope a cat fight doesn't ensue.

Because we are all special, in our own special way.
