From Monday to Thursday, Mark Sanchez, Santonio Holmes and Dustin Keller, among others, worked out together at the ESPN Wide World of Sports facility near Orlando. Conspicuous by his absence was one of Florida's favorite sons, Tim Tebow, who was nearby in Jacksonville.
Tebow apparently didn't receive an invite to work out with his new teammates -- and he said he was okay with that.
"We'll have enough time working out together," Tebow told reporters Friday night at his charity golf tournament at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra, Fla., according to Newsday.
Tebow also said, "I've been in contact with Mark and he's a great guy, we've got a great relationship. We'll look forward to seeing each other on Monday."
Monday is the start of the Jets' off-season program in Florham Park, N.J. Save for a couple of days in the wake of last month's trade, including the ballyhooed news conference, Tebow hasn't spent any time at the facility. He has met a handful of teammates, but the big introduction happens Monday.
