INDIANAPOLIS -- Tim Tebow's days with the Jets appear numbered, but they apparently haven't divulged their plans to Tebow yet.

Tebow's agent, Jimmy Sexton, told reporters Friday at the scouting combine that he hasn't talked with the Jets about his client's future. Tebow is under contract for two more years, but a parting of the ways is imminent. The Jets will try to trade the World's Most Famous Backup Quarterback, but they probably will end up releasing him after the start of the league year, March 12.

On Thursday, Rex Ryan gave a non-committal, lukewarm (at best) response when asked about Tebow.

BART WILL HAVE TO WAIT: Former Jets LB Bart Scott underwent recent toe surgery and won't be healthy until early May. He already has drawn some preliminary interest from teams, but he probably will have to wait until after the draft before finding a new home.

The Bills, Chiefs and Ravens could be potential suitors. Buffalo and Kansas City make sense, considering former Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine has the same position with the Bills and former Jets linebackers coach Bob Sutton is the Chiefs' coordinator.

WHAT A TWEET: Seahawks coach Pete Carroll made light of Richard Sherman's Twitter battle with Jets CB Darrelle Revis.

"It's obvious that Richard has a lot of free time on his hands," Carroll said of his Pro Bowl cornerback.

Carroll said he hasn't read any of Sherman's tweets, but he added, "Richard knows what he's doing. He's having fun with the whole thing. He had a tremendous season, so he has something to stand on right now."

I asked Carroll if he believes Sherman is the best corner in the NFL. Carroll didn't bite.

"I think he's a great corner," the former Jets coach said. "I think he's playing tremendous football. I think not enough people know about him yet, although he's working on it. I don't know how you can rate the best corner, but he's up there for consideration."
