“I would really encourage Trevor to find out: how are they going to use you? How are they going to support you? If I was him, I would genuinely try to evaluate everything and look at it with open eyes. Because he’s so good and so talented, he will have leverage.”

Both the New York Jets (0-7) and New York Giants (1-6) have been linked to Lawrence, putting the futures of Sam Darnold and Daniel Jones in question. Tebow, who played for the Jets in 2012, acknowledged playing in the Big Apple is something Lawrence must consider.
“I think he’s got to do a lot of evaluation. What are the Jets’ plans, how are they going to surround him. I really am a huge believer that in college, but even moreso in the NFL, your success is so much predicated on the system and what’s around you. When these QBs are in the right system that fits who they are and how they play, then guys do good. … When [quarterbacks] go into places where there’s turmoil and chaos and they don’t have players around them, they’re not as good.”
