The NFL pushed its trade deadline to Thursday after Sandy struck, giving teams a little more time to try to work out deals, but the biggest of them all doesn’t appear to be happening.

Tim Tebow isn’t likely to be traded by the New York Jets, according to a report by Albert Breer of the NFL Network. Breer cited an unnamed Jets source who denied that the team and the Jacksonville Jaguars had discussed a trade for Mark Sanchez’s backup. Jacksonville’s had reported that the team was “making a play” for Tebow.

Just before the Jets obtained Tebow from the Denver Broncos in March, the Jaguars had tried to acquire the former University of Florida star, who won two national titles with the Gators. The Jets landed Tebow, though, giving up fourth- and sixth-round picks in the April draft. Despite Sanchez’s struggles, the remains the team’s starter, with Coach Rex Ryan making limited use of Tebow, who insists he’s a quarterback, on special teams and on offense.
