New York Jets planned to use Tim Tebow as running back

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. The New York Jets had a vision of Tim Tebow being a versatile offensive player for them in 2012, and they surely tried to make it happen by lining him up at quarterback, H-back, personal punt protector and blocking back on shotgun passes.

There was one more spot they wanted to place Tebow but never got around to doing so: tailback.

The Jets had visions of lining up Tebow at running back in traditional sets when they acquired him via trade from the Denver Broncos last March, according to a person with knowledge of the team's plans at the time of the trade. The person, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition of anonymity because the Jets didn't divulge that plan, said it involved more than the shotgun look and was intended to "give (Tebow) the ball and play at times just like (Shonn) Greene and (Bilal) Powell" were used.

Jets coach Rex Ryan mentioned using Tebow as a running back only once, and that was in late October when Powell was injured and backup running back Joe McKnight was dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Ryan said Tebow could get some looks in the backfield, though McKnight wound up playing that Sunday. Tebow never lined up at running back.

The Jets' original vision to use Tebow as a running back was for more than just an emergency situation. They believed Tebow could be an integral part of their game plans as a running back.

The first question this revelation raises is, why did it never occur? Ryan was the one talking up Tebow as the ultimate weapon who could play a variety of roles. Offensive coordinator Tony Sparano didn't make it happen. Sparano was fired Monday.

The other question, then, is whether this means Tebow is definitely on his way out, as many have anticipated. The Jets will hire a new offensive coordinator and are in the process of hiring a new general manager. It's unclear at this point what those two men will think about the possibility of trying to hold on to Tebow and expanding his role to, among other things, running back.
