FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Tim Tebow is buying into his new life with the Jets in more ways than one.

The former Denver starting quarterback-turned-Jets backup told reporters Thursday that he's changing the name of his dog from "Bronco" to "Bronx" in honor of his move to the Tri-State area.

Tebow, who owns a Rhodesian ridgeback, said the name change is subtle enough that the dog still will come when called.

Speaking of the Tri-State, Tebow also shot down reports that he recently settled into Eli Manning's town. "I don't live in Hoboken," he said. "I've never even been to Hoboken."
