During a radio interview on Wednesday, former New York Jets general manager Mike Tannebaum talked about some of the mistakes he made while he was with the team, most notably trading fourth and sixth round draft picks to the Denver Broncos for Tim Tebow in 2012.
“Obviously we made a couple mistakes — trading for Tim Tebow most notably. But I would say beyond that, but we [could have done a better job with the bottom of our roster], especially toward the end,” Tannenbaum said on CBS Sports Radio.
Tannenbaum started with the team in 1997 and took over general manager duties in 2006. He was fired after the 2012 season when the Jets finished the year 6-10.
