In his training camp debut as a Jet, Tim decides to show off his newly built body. However, his teammates rags on him for being a "superstar".
"When we walked into the quarterbacks meeting room, we told Tim, 'We're just glad you kept your shirt on for the meeting,''' McElroy said after Sunday's practice. "Sure enough, there it came off and he sat shirtless for about 30 minutes.Oh Tim, they picked on Jesus too.
"Especially when we're in that room, we give each other a hard time.''
Other teammates got in on the action.
"The slow-motion run?'' asked linebacker Bart Scott about Tebow's run. "Like I told him, 'I've never seen anybody decide to take their shirt off in the rain. Usually, I put stuff on.
"Maybe it was holy water."
Wide receiver Chaz Schilens didn't see the television or web shots of Tebow showing off his newly-chiseled physique after adding nine pounds to his 6-3, 250 frame.
"Oh, man, he mentioned something about it,'' Schilens says. "I heard it was all over the news.
"It was a little funny. But I'll bet he won't do it again.''
