Tebow on Jets leadership Craig Thomas

One reporter asked Tim Tebow on Thursday if his presence will hurt Mark Sanchez’s ability to lead.

“I hope not,” Tebow said. “I don’t think so. I think that Mark has been a great leader and I think he will continue to be a great leader. He’s someone that works very hard in the weight room, in the classroom, on the practice field, and I think that’s a big key.

“On a football team, you always have a lot of leaders and you always have leaders in different roles at different times. I think we are very blessed to have a lot of leaders from Santonio Holmes to Bart Scott to David Harris to a lot of guys that are leading in a lot of different ways, and I think that’s huge.”
