Willie Colon backs the New York Jets' decision to get rid of Tim Tebow.

New York Jets offensive lineman Willie Colon has insisted that they are a better side without controversial ex-quarterback Tim Tebow.

Colon joined the club this summer and while he was not around at the same time as Tebow, Colon said that getting rid of the QB was a good decision.

"I think having the Tim Tebow circus out of here, and having different things that were kind of holding this team back, are starting to go out the window," he told Philly.com.

"I think we're all starting to care about football and only football, which is a good sight to see."

The Jets have won three of their first five games of the season.
