Jets QB Tim Tebow and his new teammates got to work yesterday. He's striving to earn an important role in the offense while the rest of the team is hoping he can help the franchise achieve a memorable 2012 campaign and bury last year's ugly implosion.

Yet such events have been superseded by real news: In an homage to his new environs, Tebow is changing the name of his dog, a Rhodesian ridgeback, from Bronco to Bronx.

Funny ... and enough to start a new trend on Twitter: #RejectedTebowDogNames.

Some of the suggestions:

Elway
Completion
Starter
Champ
Peyton
Judas
Patriot Killer
Spiral
Satan's little helper (that'll be on The Simpsons soon enough)
Excited

We're just waiting for "Rex" to catch on ...
