NEW YORK (AP)

Jets owner Woody Johnson says backup quarterback Tim Tebow will ''be with us for three years,'' and also backs struggling starter Mark Sanchez.

LET'S GET NUTS!

NFL fans are a special breed, and they bring their own brand of craziness on game day.

Johnson tells CNBC on Wednesday that despite some speculation that the Jets could try to trade Tebow after this season, his first in New York, the team will ''absolutely'' keep him for the duration of his contract.

Johnson adds that he and coach Rex Ryan have not discussed making a quarterback change, saying that Sanchez ''played great'' in a 23-17 loss to Houston on Monday night. The Jets owner would not say the team would never make a switch because ''never is a long, long time period,'' but adds that he sees ''the same things in Mark Sanchez that I saw when I first met him.''
