NFL Notebook: Jets release QB Tebow; Sanchez's status dubious

The Associated Press

NEW YORK - Tim Tebow was waived by the Jets on Monday, the end of an unsuccessful one-season experiment in New York.

"Unfortunately, things did not work out the way we all had hoped," Coach Rex Ryan said in a statement.

As a backup to Mark Sanchez, the former Heisman Trophy winner attempted just eight passes after his ballyhooed arrival from Denver in March 2012.

The Jets drafted quarterback Geno Smith in the second round of the NFL draft Friday, giving them six quarterbacks -- and creating uncertainty about Sanchez's future, as well.

BILLS-COLTS: Buffalo traded Kelvin Sheppard to Indianapolis for Jerry Hughes in a swap of linebackers two days after the draft.

NFL COMMISSIONER Roger Goodell distributed a document to teams reiterating the league's anti-discrimination policy on sexual orientation.

The document warns that "any jokes, comments or pranks" about an employee's sexual orientation constitute harassment, and prohibits teams from asking prospects questions such as "Do you have a girlfriend?"

BUCCANEERS: UCLA receiver Jerry Johnson and Arizona State cornerback Deveron Carr are among 13 undrafted college free agents agreeing to terms with Tampa Bay.
