Stanton camp – Tannenbaum lied to us Dan Leberfeld

According to the NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora, Drew Stanton’s camp feels Mike Tannenbaum lied to them.

“Only a week ago, Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum recruited Stanton to New York to be the Jets’ No. 2 quarterback behind starter Mark Sanchez. Now, with Tim Tebow in town, sources said those close to Stanton feel lied to and betrayed,” wrote LaCanfora on NFL.com. “Stanton turned down the chance to explore two other options and also took less money to go to New York because Tannenbaum was unequivocal that the QB was being brought in to be the No. 2 and the team wouldn’t draft or sign any other QBs. Sources also said Tannenbaum acknowledged Stanton, who performed well in occasional relief in Detroit, likely could earn more elsewhere.”
