Drew Stanton Traded; Agent deletes tweet on true feelings about Jets’ move

Drew Stanton Traded; Agent deletes tweet on true feelings about Jets’ move

As you know, Drew Stanton was signed by the Jets last week to be the backup and #2 behind Mark Sanchez.  All that lasted one week when Tim Tebow was suprisingly traded from the Broncos.  It was reported that Stanton requested a trade and that wish was granted today.

nyjets #RL The Jets have announced they have traded QB Drew Stanton to the Indianapolis Colts. Terms of the trade were undisclosed. 3/23/12 4:39 PM

Stanton was traded to the Colts.  I’m sure Drew was upset with the Jets flip flop but take a look at his agents’ tweet (which by the way has since been deleted). He all but calls Tim Tebow a “gimmick to sell tickets”.

A big hat time from our friends NavyandWhite.com for sending us the tweet:

I searched Deryk Gilmore’s account and found this tweet in it’s place:

DerykGilmore #Jets are a class organization for doing the right thing. I believe in my players and know what they can do. Glad it all worked out! 3/23/12 5:15 PM

You know what, I don’t blame Deryk for being upset one bit.  I hear Drew is one classy guy and it’s unfortunate the Jets pulled this move on him but look at it this way.  For dealing with this and for being a Jet for one week, Drew walks away with $500,000.00.  Um, can someone do that to me?!

drewstanton It’s been a crazy week but I’m thankful @nyjets r a classy organization Circumstance changed & now I’m @nflcolts. Can’t wait to get 2 Indy 3/23/12 5:12 PM

Stanton wanted out as soon as the Jets traded for Tim Tebow. Understandably, Stanton felt betrayed because the Jets had promised him the No. 2 job; that’s the main reason he signed with them. The Jets agreed to find him a new home, and they received a list of five preferred destinations from Stanton, according to a source — the Colts, Rams, Broncos, Steelers and Packers.

The Jets did the right thing and cut bait.

Actually, it wasn’t a bad trade, all things considered. They managed to get something back instead of having to cut him outright. The Jets received a sixth-round pick from the Colts, sending a seventh-rounder (acquired in the Tebow trade) to the Colts, according to a league source. ESPN

    Agent is clueless Jets sell out all their games don’t need Tebow to sell tickets.

      Which makes it doubly stupid to sign Tebow.  Of course it was for media attention, why else do you give signing a backup QB a press conference. Ringling Bros. Circus has nothing on NY Jets. Stanton is well rid of the Jets, glad it worked out for him. Tebow is getting what he wished for, not as humble as he seems I guess.

        Yeah! Ur all knowing and real creative by recycling the term “circus coming to town!” Did u plagerize that joke all by urself or u had some help!

    Doc thanks 4 saying what should have been otherwise obvious. Jets arent the sorry jags or, lol, now the colts for the next few yrs. Nobody will show up in Indy like they didnt from 83′ all the way up until their messiah arrived in 98′. Save for the first yr or two Dickerson was sent there in 87′! Guarantee u the Colts r blacked out sometime within the next 2 years.

    …and dont tell me about Luck. Hes a great prospect but hes not Manning and after yr one when they r still going 4 -12, the fans won’t show up and they will front run until the Colts win again and then they will hop on the bandwagon!
