New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow has had quite the tumultuous last couple months, but that won't stop him from showing up Monday for the start of the team's offseason program.

Tebow, who has been the subject of various trade rumors and is expected to be cut or dealt by the Jets, remained positive when speaking of his situation Friday at the Tim Tebow Foundation Celebrity Gala & Golf Classic in Florida.

"It's nothing I can control, and like I've said ever since I was at Nease High School, I really try not to worry about what I can't control," Tebow said, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York. "Just try to have the best attitude, have the best effort, a great work ethic, and so far this offseason has been a lot of fun. Been my best yet."

Ever the optimist, Tebow insisted he has no plans of changing positions, and he'll show up Monday ready to work.

"It's always been my dream, always will be," Tebow said of playing quarterback. "Yeah, I'll be there Monday ready to work out and have a great attitude."

His arrival will be met with some disdain, namely from Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez's tutor Jeff Garcia, who called Tebow a "distraction."

"If there's going to be competition at the position, it's not going to come from Tim Tebow," Garcia said. "Having Tebow there [last season] just became more of a distraction, more of a circus show. Obviously, it's their decision, but from an outsider looking in, having Tebow there doesn't bring anything positive. It just brings distraction."
