Tim Tebow to the New York Jets – Deal Goes Through
It’s really, really official! The Denver Broncos have elected to part ways with Tim Tebow, and are sending him to the New York Jets. Just two days after the Broncos signed Peyton Manning, John Elway has sent Tebow packing. Denver General Manager, Brian Xanders, says the Broncos will receive fourth and sixth-round draft picks, while New York gets a seventh-rounder – all in 2012.
Tim Tebow to the New York Jets – the Details
After Tim Tebow led the Broncos to a winning season, and the second round of the playoffs by defeating the Steelers, John Elway said he believed Tim Tebow had earned himself another season in the Mile High. Oh how things have changed. Many had speculated that Elway was going to look to part ways with Tebow and the hoopla that goes along with him. But this comes as a surprise offseason move.
Now, Tim Tebow will be a backup to quarterback Mark Sanchez, who just signed a long term contract with the Jets. The one bright side here for Tebow is that if Mark Sanchez continues to under-perform, then Tebow will get his shot in the Big Apple.
