The Jets' special teams coach says he plans to use Tim Tebow.

Monday, Mike Westhoff said he had discussed the plan with Tebow and the backup quarterback was amenable to it.

Without revealing specifics, Westhoff calls Tebow a "more potent Brad Smith," referring to the versatile former Jets receiver who was a college QB.

On offense, Tebow is expected to play some quarterback in wildcat packages and could see time at running back and fullback.

The Jets acquired him from the Broncos this offseason to back up starter Mark Sanchez.
