Tebow Released: Tebow Earned $28,883 Per Yard with the Jets in 2012

The New York Jets released Tim Tebow today.  Tebow had an undistinguished 2012 season with the Jets, rushing for 102 yards and passing for 39.  His compensation per yard (rushing and passing), however, was quite impressive, particularly in comparison to his 2010 and 2011 seasons with Denver:

Note:  Because of trades, compensation paid by each team is not identical to the years Tebow played with a given team.  This analysis is simplistic because it does not take into account the opportunity cost of having Tebow on the field or how much Tebow played. Different sources have different salary information.  2013 required payments are not included.
