Rex Ryan Refuses To Say If Jets QB Tim Tebow Asked Out Of Wildcat
Rex Ryan stuck to his talking points when asked about whether Tim Tebow told him early last week that he wasn't interested in playing in the team's Wildcat packages after he was bypassed for the starting job.
Tebow expressed his displeasure to Ryan on Tuesday before not talking to his head coach for three days, according to a conversation that the quarterback had with ESPN on Sunday night. Tebow reportedly went back to Ryan on Friday and told him that he'd be willing to help out the team by assuming any role.
Ryan didn't get into any specifics on Monday.
"I've been transparent and all that stuff without question, but I'm not going to give you a private conversation that I would have with a player," Ryan said in a conference call. "That's between him and I. If he wants to share whatever the conversation is - Tim or anybody else - that's up to him."
Ryan didn't elaborate whether he felt Tebow's apparent stance of not wanting to play his situational role was insubordination.
"If I would have asked Tim to play in anything," Ryan said, "Tim would have gone into the game and done that."
