Tim Tebow speaks for the first time since being traded from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets.

On the Denver Broncos & Peyton Manning:

“I understand what they were going through. You don’t get many opportunities to have a chance to sign Peyton Manning. What a great quarterback he is.”

On Rex Ryan:

“I wanted to play for Coach Ryan ever since I saw ‘Hard Knocks. He just seemed like a coach who loves football and is passionate about the game of football. He’s definitely a players’ coach. I just love that about him. I have so much respect for Coach Ryan. He’s a coach you want to play for, a coach you want to go out there and do good for. … There’s not many NFL locker rooms you’re going to go where you have the cleanest language, so I’m not too worried about that.”

On Mark Sanchez:

“Mark called me and left a voicemail. I was searching through all my voicemails and I heard his and I called him back. We talked, got a chance to catch up a little bit. It was a great conversation. We’ve been blessed to get to know each other the last three years. I think we’re both extremely competitive. I think we’ll be able to push each other to get a lot better. I think we’ll have a great working relationship, and we’ve had a great relationship off the field. He’s such a classy guy. I’ll be very honored to call him my teammate.”

On his new situation:

“I feel like this is a great opportunity for me to develop. I think the scheme we’ll be playing in is a great scheme to play under and improve every day. My goal is just to be the best player, the best quarterback, the best teammate I can be and improve every single day and earn everything I get by working hard and find a way to help the team in whatever role that is.”

Overall:

“I’m just thankful to be a Jet.”
