New York Jets new offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said he had a "long discussion" with Tim Tebow about ways the quarterback could be used, according to the New York Post.

Tebow's first season with the Jets was expected to be his last, given how 2012 ended for both quarterback and the team. His release still could be forthcoming by the Jets as the new league year begins on Tuesday. But on Monday, Mornhinweg sounded as if he is making Tebow-specific plans, just in case the quarterback remains on the roster next season.

"He would be taking reps at quarterback and then some of his other skills could certainly help a football team,” Mornhinweg said. “What he did in Denver a year ago, that was something else. The man can play football. How you utilize him would certainly be the key. He’s on our football team right now so it’s my duty and responsibility to have some thoughts on how he could help us win the next football game. I have put an awful lot of thought into that. He certainly has some skills to do that. He has some quarterback skills. As a quarterback, the gut instincts are real important and he certainly has that.”
