Tebow practices jump pass with Jets

Tim Tebow is practicing one of his old tricks.
The New York Jets backup quarterback completed a jump pass on a fake punt during practice at training camp Monday. Tebow was lined up as the up-back when he took the direct snap, dropped back and then hopped and completed a short pass to tight end Jeff Cumberland.
Tebow first unveiled his jump pass while playing for the University of Florida, sparking the Gators to a 23-10 victory over LSU in 2006.
Tebow, Mark Sanchez's backup, has been practicing as the punt protector on special teams since training camp began last Friday. He is also expected to enter games when the Jets use a wildcat-style package, but the team has yet to work on that this summer.
