Jets leaning towards starting Greg McElroy, according to report

The New York Jets are leaning towards starting quarterback Greg McElroy against the Jaguars on Sunday, according to a report.

The New York Jets haven't decide on who they will start at quarterback against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, but a recent report suggests that Jets head coach Rex Ryan is leaning towards a candidate. Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports is reporting that Ryan is leaning towards starting Greg McElroy against the Jaguars, but will meet with the front office to further discuss the matter.

One source suggested to La Canfora it was 65-35 in McElroy's favor but noted that Ryan still was set to meet with general manager Mike Tannenbaum about the issue tonight. Tannenbaum moved up to draft Sanchez and has rewarded him handily with contracts, and Sanchez is likely bound to New York next season with $8.25M fully guaranteed on his deal with no offsets and language requiring that full sum to be paid within 30 days if the former first-round pick is released.

The report also suggests that Tim Tebow isn't really even being considered as possibility to start Sunday's game against the Jaguars, even if he was fully healthy.

It's possible Tebow may not even be on the active game day roster for his second trip back to Jacksonville.
