In an interview with Michael Silver of Yahoo Sports on Wednesday, Jets running back suggested that Tim Tebow should replace Mark Sanchez at quaraterback.
Steve Wyche of NFL Network and NFL.com reports a source close to Jets running back Shonn Greene, who spoke with Greene overnight, said the running back was not advocating for a quarterback change.
“You feel bad for Mark, but at the same time, you want to win games. We’re not here to protect people’s feelings,” he said. “If you want to win games, you’ve got to try something.”
The source said Greene was not suggesting any specific personnel changes. Instead, the source said the “change” Greene meant is that the Jets need to start winning instead of losing.
Greene will reportedly clarify his remarks to the media today.
