Jets officially welcome Tebow to New York

The Jets have officially welcomed quarterback Tim Tebow to New York.

The polarizing quarterback was introduced to the media during a press conference in New Jersey after he was traded from the Denver Broncos last week. Jets management has stressed that Tebow will serve as backup to quarterback Mark Sanchez.

In Brooklyn, Modell's Sporting Goods stores are already gearing up for Tebow fever, but many football fans say they have mixed feelings on the team's newest addition. To watch Tim Tebow's introductory press conference, click on iO Extra on Channel 612.
