Tebow shows off his fastball at Jets practice

New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley had good things to say about his new teammate, Tim Tebow.

Kerley told the Newark Star-Ledger that Tebow was more accurate than he thought he would be and that he has plenty of velocity on his throws.

"Different than Mark, different than Mark," Kerley said. "(Tebow's) ball comes out a little bit stronger, but he's accurate, he's more accurate than what I thought he was going to be. But he's a good dude, he has a great personality, he'll bring a lot of personality to the team."

Asked specifically about Tebow's velocity compared to Mark Sanchez, Kerley replied, "A LOT, a lot more velocity. No dis to Mark, he brings it, man."

Get ready. It's one of the first of many comparisons that will be made between the two quarterbacks as the 2012 season unfolds.
