Tim Tebow decides to poke fun at one of his former teams, the New York Jets, while, oddly enough, delivering an Easter sermon.

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” It’s the verse that’s transformed into what we all know as the Golden Rule, something all folks from all walks of life strive to follow.

Yet, interestingly, one practicing Christian let his slip past his boundaries… on Easter Sunday, no less.

Tim Tebow decided to poke fun at one of his former teams, the New York Jets, while delivering an Easter Sermon.

“What we are talking about is the greatest trade in the history of the world. There have been some really big trades. The Red Sox traded Babe Ruth [to the Yankees] for $100,000. How’s that for a trade?

“Wayne Gretzky was traded for a couple of scrubs. How’s that for a trade?

“I got traded to the Jets. How’s that for a trade? That didn’t work out for anybody. When’s the last time a Jets trade worked out? Anyway, that’s beside the point.”

Yeah… by no means did Tebow obliterate the Jets here. Those who listened to the full two-minute video understand that notion completely. It was simply a harmless ribbing of one of the NFL teams who must continue to take that abuse until winning ways come, once again.

Tebow, 32, was traded from the Denver Broncos to the Jets for a fourth and sixth-round pick prior to the 2012 season, the same season Rex Ryan inexplicably brought Tony Sparano in to call the offensive plays.

The experiment turned out in disastrous fashion. Tebow finished his lone season in New Jersey with 39 yards passing on a paltry 6-8 to go along with 102 yards on the ground (32 attempts). After failed stints with the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles, the Christian has taken to baseball, the sport in which he currently resides (minor-league system with the New York Mets).
