What the Patriots do with TE Rob Gronkowski also could impact quarterback Tim Tebow, who is on the roster bubble in New England. Should New England place Gronkowski on the PUP list, it would give the Patriots additional roster flexibility that could mean carrying a third quarterback.

But if Gronkowski is not placed on PUP and stays on the roster, that will be one fewer spot available on the Patriots' roster.

Fantasy Impact:

Tebow hasn't been impressive for the Pats in the preseason and with a much more capable Ryan Mallett as the QB2, Tebow would only make the team as the third quarterback. With new reports saying Gronk could be back by Week 3, it seems Tebow's roster spot could be in jeopardy.

Geno Smith may have slight lead QB battle

Jets QB Geno Smith has outplayed Mark Sanchez through the first week of training camp, pulling even or perhaps ahead in the New York Jets' quarterback competition.

"He can do more" than Sanchez, one veteran said Wednesday, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

Smith has sparkled with his accuracy, but he tends to hold the ball too long when facing pressure, according to Ryan. That, he said, "concerns me a little bit." The organization knows what it has in Sanchez, who was benched late last season.

Privately, the hope is that Smith can master the offense and seize the starting job. Even if he doesn't win it, Smith will be involved in the offense. Even though Tim Tebow is gone, Ryan said he remains committed to running the ball from the quarterback position.

Fantasy Impact:

If this is a close call, expect Smith to start as the Jets have nothing to gain by continuing to start Sanchez unless he's obviously the better option.

Patriots QB Tim Tebow had his best day of work in training camp, showing steady improvement from recent performances. He showed good arm strength and accuracy on throws down the field, and looks to be more decisive with each live rep.

In addition, the team walked through some read option work early in practice, something Tebow's movement skills can be used in. From afar, it seems as if Tebow's work with offensive assistant coach Brian Daboll is paying early dividends.

It was another up-and-down day for Patriots QB Tim Tebow throwing the ball Sunday. He again struggled to pull the trigger in the pocket, often waiting 5-7 seconds before finally dumping the ball off. He also threw a bad pass over the middle in 7-on-7 drills that should have been picked off by Steve Beauharnais, but was dropped.

Tebow once again participated briefly as a receiver in the catch-and-run drills. It was interesting to see offensive assistant Brian Daboll, who had been working mostly with the offensive line, working personally with Tebow during some drills. Daboll got a lot out of Colt McCoy in Cleveland and Matt Moore in Miami.

The Jets have released QB Tim Tebow.

The Jets will try to shop QB Tim Tebow at this week's scouting combine. The first day they can trade him is March 12, so they might keep him until then with the hope that they can swing a deal. Chances are, no one will bite, so they'll end up releasing him.

Tim Tebow is expected to be one-and-done with the Jets, and now that the potential landing spot in his hometown of Jacksonville is officially closed, the NFL may have seen the last of Tebow Mania.

“Here’s the reason it could be over for him: the distraction,” the source said. “It’s not that someone wouldn’t like to look at him, but the distraction he brings to an organization is not worth it. Now you’ve got two places he’s been and both are adamant that he can’t play quarterback. Adamant. Both paid a heckuva price to kick the tires.”

Fantasy Impact:

We're not completely convinced that the Jacksonville door is fully closed. New GM David Caldwell said, “I can’t imagine a scenario in which he’ll be a Jacksonville Jaguar — even if he’s released.” But talking about another team's players is tampering and Caldwell could be playing coy so that he can get Tebow for free. Time will tell.

Jaguars GM says team is not interested in Tim Tebow

Shutdown Corner - [Full Article]

If you were looking forward to seeing Tim Tebow playing quarterback or any other position for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2013, you can stop doing that now. At his introductory press conference, newly-hired general manager David Caldwell slammed the door on the Jaguars acquiring Tebow this or any offseason.

“I can’t imagine a scenario where he’d be a Jacksonville Jaguar,” Caldwell said when asked about Tebow on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

We'll see how this plays out, but Caldwell's statement certainly doesn't support the notion that Tebow will be under center in Jacksonville in 2013.

Cecil Shorts sustains another concussion

Patriots safety Patrick Chung laid a nasty helmet-to-helmet hit on Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts during the fourth quarter that drew an unnecessary-roughness penalty.

Shorts was knocked out of the game and did not return.

Fantasy Impact:

The hit will likely end Shorts' breakout season. He has 55 receptions for 979 yards and seven TDs. If the rumors are true and the Jaguars acquire Tim Tebow next offseason, it may put a dent in Shorts' value.

The New York Post - [Full Article]

A source said the Jets were shocked at how poor Tim Tebow played in practice soon after he arrived. As Tebow struggled, McElroy improved and eventually gained the coaching staff’s backing. So when Ryan decided to give Mark Sanchez the hook this week, his trust was in Greg McElroy.

There was also the “Tebowmania” factor. One source described the organization as “frozen with fear” that Tebow would actually excel, creating a quarterback controversy that would wreck Sanchez’s psyche. Tebow wound up being more effective as the personal protector on the punt team than as an offensive player.

Fantasy Impact:

It's never a good sign when a team doesn't player a QB because they're afraid he's going to excel. Tim Tebow won't be a Jet in 2013.
