Tebow's NJ Arrival Causes Fans to Gather
Florham Park Police and training facility security were on the scene ready for Tebow Mania.
Football fans gathered outside of Florham Park's Atlantic Health Jets Training Facility on Thursday to welcome the newest member of Gang Green.
Tim Tebow and the sure-to-follow Tebow Mania arrived at the Morristown Municipal Airport shortly after 3 p.m. Thursday, and he was expected to join with Jets' personnel shortly after at the team's training facility.
Tebow was traded to the New York Jets on Wednesday from the Denver Broncos after the team signed Peyton Manning as a free agent. Manning and the Indianapolis Colts had ended their 14-year relationship earlier in the offseason.
The man responsible for the trade was Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum, who is a Basking Ridge resident.
Fairleigh Dickinson University students Karlee Goergia, Sara Chauvette, Jenna Campfield and Kim Campfield ran over to the facility to wait for Tebow's arrival. Though the four are self-proclaimed Giants fans, they could not help get swept up in the excitement.
"We'll be running here from now on," Jenna Campfield said.
Members of the press were not allowed into the Jets facility, and were later removed from the area. Florham Park Police were also on the scene.
