EAST RUTHERFORD - Tim Tebow says he had a "great conversation" with New York Jets quarterback and friend Mark Sanchez.

Speaking on a conference call late last night, Tebow says he's thankful the Jets stuck with him through "this whole crazy process."

After some initial confusion, the Jets settled on a deal to get the Denver Broncos quarterback and a seventh-round draft pick for a fourth- and sixth-round draft pick.

Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum says Sanchez remains the team's unquestioned starting quarterback.
