Tebow: ‘Here to help’


Tim Tebow laughed a few times, smiled steadily and stayed polite and composed. If being surrounded by dozens of cameras and scores of media people made him nervous, the New York Jets’ new backup quarterback didn’t show it. He was cool and calm – exactly how he looked during those hair-raising comebacks last season with the Denver Broncos. His message: I’m here to help, not to create another Jets controversy. Asked what he thought about the media crush, he said: “I really don’t think it will be much of a distraction because, honestly, I will try not to pay too much attention to it.” Tebow spoke for more than 30 minutes at a news conference held in the team’s field house because the media turnout was so massive it couldn’t be accommodated in the normal press room. – AP
