Tim Tebow Pokes Fun at Jets During Easter Sermon

Tim Tebow was one of the greatest college quarterbacks of all-time. In the NFL, his career never really took off playing sparingly over three years with two teams (Broncos, Jets) while also trying out for two more (Patriots and Eagles). His greatest moment in the league came against the Steelers in the 2011 playoffs when he connected with Demaryius Thomas on an 80-yard catch and run for the game-winning score.

Tebow is now out of football and playing minor league baseball for another New York organization, the Mets.

While he only played in one season for the Jets, that did not stop Tebow from taking a shot at the team who acquired him to challenge Mark Sanchez for the starting job. Here's what he said during an Easter sermon:

“What we are talking about is the greatest trade in the history of the world. There have been some really big trades. The Red Sox traded Babe Ruth [to the Yankees] for $100,000. How’s that for a trade?

“Wayne Gretzky was traded for a couple of scrubs. How’s that for a trade?

“I got traded to the Jets. How’s that for a trade? That didn’t work out for anybody. When’s the last time a Jets trade worked out? Anyway, that’s beside the point.”

That burn may replace his game-winning overtime touchdown pass against the Steelers in the playoffs as his greatest NFL moment.
