Tim Tebow confirmed that he will show up Monday for the start of the Jets' offseason program, saying he will arrive with a "great attitude" and putting to rest the notion of switching positions to prolong his career.

The Jets' backup QB, speaking Friday at the Tim Tebow Foundation Celebrity Gala & Golf Classic at TPC Sawgrass, said this has been his best offseason ever. He didn't say much about his future with the team or the crowded depth chart.
"It's nothing I can control, and like I've said ever since I was at Nease High School [which, like Sawgrass, is in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.], I really try not to worry about what I can't control," he said. "Just try to have the best attitude, have the best effort, a great work ethic, and so far this offseason has been a lot of fun. Been my best yet."
The Jets have been trying to trade Tebow, and they're expected to release him in the coming weeks if they can't pull off a deal. He won't switch positions to make himself more attractive to potential suitors.
"It's always been my dream, always will be," Tebow said of playing quarterback.
Monday could be awkward for Tebow, seeing as how his days appear numbered, but he insisted, "Yeah, I'll be there Monday ready to work out and have a great attitude."
