Broncos not expecting much in Tim Tebow trade

Divisional Playoffs - Denver Broncos v New England Patriots Getty Images

The Broncos are expected to move quickly to trade Tim Tebow as soon as the Peyton Manning signing becomes official, and they’re not going to hold out for a great offer.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported that the Broncos aren’t confident at all that they’re going to get much of value for Tebow, who two years ago was a first-round draft pick in Denver and two months ago was a winning quarterback in a playoff game in Denver.

As we’ve previously noted, Mortensen mentioned that Jaguars owner Shad Khan would love to see Tebow in a Jaguars uniform from a business perspective, even if the football people tell him that it doesn’t make sense from a football perspective because Blaine Gabbert was the Jaguars’ first-round pick last year and Chad Henne has been signed as well. This might just be a move where the owner overrules the football people, especially if Tebow can be had on the cheap.

Tebow’s popularity in Florida could also lead to Miami or Tampa Bay seeking his services, and the Patriots could have some interest, as offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels was the man who drafted Tebow in Denver, and head coach Bill Belichick has said he liked Tebow after studying the Urban Meyer offense that Tebow ran at Florida.

But no matter which of those teams are interested in Tebow, they won’t be interested in giving up a bounty of draft picks for him. Former NFL general manager Charley Casserly told USA Today, “I’d be surprised if he went for much better than a fifth rounder.”

Mortensen said that if the Broncos can’t trade Tebow, they would likely release him. Bottom line: Tebowmania in Denver is dead.

    Please, NOT the Dolphins!

  2. joetoronto says: Mar 19, 2012 1:19 PM

    If two teams want him, they might get a 4th or 5th, otherwise forget it, maybe a box of used tissues or Packer “stock”.

  3. johninthewest says: Mar 19, 2012 1:19 PM

    I think Tim is a lot better than what we think. He needs onmore year under his belt..

  4. md228010 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:19 PM

    Manning represented by Tom Condon. Tebow represented by Jimmy Sexton, Condon’s partner.

  5. md228010 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:20 PM

    Tebow was paid $6.3 million option in July by Broncos, scheduled to make $1.1 million this season.

  6. tennesseeoilers says: Mar 19, 2012 1:20 PM

    Just … wow. This is the NFL’s biggest star we’re talking about here. The man the NFL chose to put on the cover of the premier issue of its official magazine. Again … wow.

  7. doncherry81 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:20 PM

    I hope Tebow comes back to haunt you, Elway. Never seen a guy who wins disrespected so much.

  8. md228010 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:20 PM

    While a Stanford quarterback will replace Peyton in Indy, he will work for a Stanford quarterback in Denver.

  9. ohnothatguy says: Mar 19, 2012 1:20 PM

    Why not keep him?!?! Change of pace qb? That 4th n inches qb sneak you cant have manning risk, as another rb or a te?! That way you keep the tebow sales n fanbase..

  10. coonsqualler says: Mar 19, 2012 1:20 PM

    Please Cleveland. He can beat Pittspuke!!!

    Just Sayin’….Go Brownies!!!

  11. ronswansonsdinner says: Mar 19, 2012 1:21 PM

    Tebow just had his first drink of his life.

  12. tatatoothy says: Mar 19, 2012 1:21 PM

    Reunion with McDaniels in New England.

    I don’t agree with it, but I see it happening.

  13. mrmarcus55 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:21 PM

    Maybe a kite and a ham sandwhich?

  14. thankheavenfornumberseven says: Mar 19, 2012 1:21 PM

    The nice thing for Tebow is now he’ll be able to play in a place where he’s wanted.

  15. rkymntnhigh says: Mar 19, 2012 1:21 PM

    Steve Young is flabbergasted at this turn of events!

  16. afunny0 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:21 PM

    Tebow to South Beach for Lebron , sounds good to me

  17. md228010 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:22 PM

    The 49ers better do some scrambling to sign Alex Smith and not lose him to Miami. The next best QBs are Vince Young, D. Garrard and McNabb

  18. stairwayto7 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:22 PM

    6th rounder at best!

  19. TSizzleBallSoHard says: Mar 19, 2012 1:22 PM

    I would think that they could get at least a 2nd or 3rd round pick for him. Not because he’s a good player but because he’ll sell tickets.

  20. trubroncfan07 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:22 PM

    They should trade Tebow for Henne and a pick, makes sense for both teams.

  21. mrplow3 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:22 PM

    My goodness things have kicked into high gear this morning.

    /popcorn

  22. nunpuncher says: Mar 19, 2012 1:22 PM

    If Tebow goes to Tampa Bay I’ll have to go to Mons Venus after every home game to wash the Christ off of me.

  23. kspec1982 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:22 PM

    So the smart thing to do would be for all teams intrested to wait till Tebow is released so they wouldn’t have to give up anything for the all mighty Tebow.

    I would consider if i were the Jaguars getting Tebow for a 2015 7th round draft pick.

    Other than that wait and see.

  24. wyofootballfan says: Mar 19, 2012 1:22 PM

    Remember when the wildcat was semi successful and everyone thought it was genius? Then every team created their own and became useless? Same thing with tebow, he had a few decent games then everyone figured it out. He will be a bench warmer where ever he goes. Because he can’t throw!

  25. bronco1st says: Mar 19, 2012 1:23 PM

    Of course they won’t get much when the begin the deal by saying we don’t expect much. I think Elway should sue the league for excessive concussions. Of course the damage probably limits him from thinking of that.

  26. Philadelphia says: Mar 19, 2012 1:23 PM

    If I were Elway and PM, I wouldn’t go on that private jet anytime soon, at least until Tebow finds a new home…..that thing just might get struck by lightning….

  27. yahmule says: Mar 19, 2012 1:23 PM

    Charlie Casserly was a joke of a GM, so his opinion is fairly meaningless.

  28. AlanSaysYo says: Mar 19, 2012 1:23 PM

    They’ll do better than a 5th. Steven Ross has two 3rds burning a hole in his pocket.

  29. whatnojets says: Mar 19, 2012 1:23 PM

    MORONS!

    Well, after the locus , the fire and then rain- nothing will be left over in Denver!

  30. webothlose says: Mar 19, 2012 1:23 PM

    WR in New England?

  31. bmue42 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:23 PM

    hahahahaha all those numb skulls who bought #15 jerseys last year better get the tape out to convert those 15s to 18s

  32. canjura says: Mar 19, 2012 1:23 PM

    Texans should offer a 5th rounder for him to back up Schaub. As “good” as T.J. Yates looked last season, he was awful. 158 yards a game isn’t something a “prototypical” QB should be throwing. Tebow also threw for the same amount of yardage, but added 70 yards rushing a game.

  33. broncobrewer says: Mar 19, 2012 1:23 PM

    Where ever he ends up he won’t be a qb.

  34. sportsmeccabi says: Mar 19, 2012 1:24 PM

    I’ll offer $50 for him to come play on my rugby team.

  35. TeamBalco says: Mar 19, 2012 1:24 PM

    4th rounder and a pack of New Castle.

  36. thousandcasts says: Mar 19, 2012 1:24 PM

    Trade him to anywhere that doesn’t have media or access to a podium microphone. A silent Tebow is a good Tebow.

  37. kacapaco says: Mar 19, 2012 1:24 PM

    See the exact similarity b/n politicians and front-office ppl like Elway. They will say whatever now and will never hesitate for millisecond to f’ u up when they want. Poor Tebow.

  38. jakek2 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:24 PM

    “Bottom line: Tebowmania in Denver is dead.”

    good.

  39. vegaskid21 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:24 PM

    Yeah, the Broncos aren’t expecting much for a guy who helped take a 1-4 team to the playoffs and got the pleasure of knocking out the damn Steelers. Elway is an ungreatful bas*ard.

  40. cali49er707 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:25 PM

    no shnit, their is no way they actually thought any team would make a respectable offer & with that rational approach how did they land peyton,OH WELL WATCH OUT STEELER FANS WERE COMING FOR WALLACE!!!!

  41. medtxpack says: Mar 19, 2012 1:25 PM

    Thank God……is that to PC?

  42. rameyag says: Mar 19, 2012 1:25 PM

    Doug Flutie proved his mettle in the Canadian Football League. Tim Tebow should do likewise. Otherwise, wherever he lands, he’s just languish on the bench.

  43. greysolon says: Mar 19, 2012 1:25 PM

    It’s not like Gabbert and Henne are top QBs a team can rely on. Put Tebow in the mix and run some creative stuff with Gabbert/Henne and Tebow splitting plays.

  44. datd00d says: Mar 19, 2012 1:25 PM

    Sounds like the guy saying “..I’d be surprised if he went for much better than a fifth rounder” is trying to make a headline. Tebow is AT LEAST worth a fourth rounder on his H-back skills alone.

    At a minimum, the guy can run in the NFL. He routinely trucked and outran linebackers and secondary players last year. Add in his star power and potential as a QB, he could definitely go for a 2nd-3rd rounder to the right buyer.

  45. bucrightoff says: Mar 19, 2012 1:25 PM

    Just cut him, no one is going to give them anything for him. The Broncos recent first round history has been pretty atrocious

  46. Broncofanatic7 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:27 PM

    Elway please don’t trade him!

  47. evilboy128 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:27 PM

    Bud Adams not getting Peyton Manning and being left out for many of the top free agents is a PERFECT example of the owner NOT making your personal decisions…unless the Jaguars can trade a 2013 7th round draft pick to get him…then it doesn’t need to happen. PERIOD!

  48. preventoffense says: Mar 19, 2012 1:28 PM

    Could turn out like an Ebay bid that starts at a buck to generate interest, and ends up far beyond the expected price.

  49. lonespeed says: Mar 19, 2012 1:28 PM

    I wouldn’t call myself a fan, but I don’t get the Tim Teebow hate.

    The dude played three games last year with a quarterback rating over 100. And one was a 149.3. His TD to INT ratio was 2-1, and 3-1 if you count his rushing TDs. That’s not bad for a second-year quarterback who has yet to play a full season.

    You don’t do those things and not know how to play. You also don’t win playoff games if you don’t know how to play.

    Is Teebow to praise for all the Broncos success last year. No, his team certainly came through but he was the catalyst, no doubt.

  50. dannywoodrow says: Mar 19, 2012 1:28 PM

    Best of luck to Timmy wherever he winds up.

  52. adamwest101 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:28 PM

    does the author of this article double as tebow’s agent? is the interest in tebow generated by the teams mentioned, or by tebow’s camp?

  53. jakek2 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:29 PM

    With Tebow, Quinn and Orton all gone or soon to be gone, is Elway himself backing up PM?

  54. thetooloftools says: Mar 19, 2012 1:30 PM

    Come to Cleveland.. we need a saviour.

  55. babyjesus69 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:30 PM

    Peyton chose comfortability and money over his best chance at winning a championship and playing in same conference as lil bro. Why not choose the team that was less than a quarter from playing in the championship if you’re really serious about winning another title? Guess he’s contempt in having 1 more than Marino.

    And it’s not like Joe Montana when he went to Chiefs. Here’s the difference between the two. Montana got traded to Chiefs. He would of never signed with the Chiefs. But like any true competitor he made the best of his given situation. Something Peyton didn’t in this case.

    -bitter niners fan

  56. citizenstrange says: Mar 19, 2012 1:31 PM

    He’d look good in Black & Gold!

    GO STEELERS!

    Is he in the final year of a three year contract?

    If so he will probably get cut and then sign for a lot less somewhere.

    I guess he will want to start somewhere. There are 32 teams in the NFL … 31 not counting the Broncos … would Tebow be an upgrade for ANY of them?

  57. bigginfragable says: Mar 19, 2012 1:31 PM

    The only way Tebow is going to Tampa is if he learns how to block and wants to become a Tight End.

  58. kurb21 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:32 PM

    I have never seen a person who you would think would be loved and adored by everyone get treated so badly.

    This guy has never once “tooted his own horn” or done anything to cause harm or embarrassment to his organization or teammates. He played hard, was pretty much an awful passer, but he did bring some excitement. Looks like he will be a footnote in sports history, though.

    Here in Denver, I think half the Denver Metro area bought his jersey last year even though the organization knew he would be gone the first chance they got. Its business, but sometimes…ok, all the time, the business side of things is unfair to fans.

    Don’t we all know that Peyton lost strength in his arm that will not come back and will ultimately cause him to not play that precision timing game with anywhere near the efficiency he did previously?

  59. bigfranky75 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:32 PM

    This guy will end up in a Bills uniform. Book it.

    Buddy Nix & Chan Gailey were desperately trying to trade back into the late 1st round to nab this guy and were beaten out by the Broncos. Trust me… if he can in fact be had on the cheap…. the Bills will try to get him.

  60. hatesycophants says: Mar 19, 2012 1:32 PM

    Maybe we should wait 3 days or so to see if it comes back to life? *rimshot*

  61. cosmoman11 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:33 PM

    Stephen Ross, being the shrewd football man that he is, is prepared to offer 3 1sts and 3 2nds just to prove that he can get someone to play QB in Miami.

  62. dumbasdirt says: Mar 19, 2012 1:34 PM

    The Broncos were 1-4 until Tebow took over and helped turn them around. Now he’s being treated like he’s JaMarcus Russell or Ryan Leaf.

    The Broncos 2012 schedule has 7 teams on it that went to the playoffs this past season.

    When Manning gets injured the Broncos will be sorry that they traded Tebow and disrespected him.
    The Colts had no back up plan last season and look what happened to them.

  63. skipbayless says: Mar 19, 2012 1:34 PM

    Poor Tiny Tim. A first rounder (i dont know how) win a playoff game, then about to get traded for a 5th rounder to a team that he is going to have to compete to even play, or even worse-getting cut.

  64. sbxxix says: Mar 19, 2012 1:34 PM

    The picture may be a quick glimpse of what team Tebow will be saying his post game prayers with

  65. jclii says: Mar 19, 2012 1:35 PM

    Go ahead and take Wallace. We won’t ever pay him what he wants anyway. I’ll miss him, but that’s football.

  66. squared80 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:35 PM

    If you want to sell tickets, sign Tebow. If you want to win, don’t.

  67. ragingmouse says: Mar 19, 2012 1:35 PM

    Would make a heck of a blocking back, fullback or tight-end!!!!

  68. greysolon says: Mar 19, 2012 1:36 PM

    If/when Manning gets hurt the fanbase will be irate– especially with if Tebow is on Sportscenter highlights w Jacksonville.

  69. pir8life says: Mar 19, 2012 1:36 PM

    All this talk means nothing until we hear what Merril DuAine Hoge has to say.

  70. deconjonesbitchslap says: Mar 19, 2012 1:36 PM

    you have to admit, John Elway threw Tebow under the bus quite a bit. Tebow was at the helm when they won the division, and won a playoff game, and excited the entire league.

    Elway just kept throwing Tebow under, and didn’t seem to care. The move makes sense, and is the only Elway could have gotten rid of Tebow without Denver residents running him out of town. but still, Tebow was not exactly treated well in Denver by the front office. and he brought more excitement to that franchise. and now they are going to trade him for a new set of urinal cakes if they are lucky.

  71. knew8411 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:36 PM

    I know Peyton is a HOFer. That being said, I do not think this deal will make Denver a SB contender. Tebow is not a terrible QB, as many think he is. If you watched him closely, he looked a whole lot better in December & January, than he did in September. I wish them both the best.

  72. andypro18 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:39 PM

    “Same thing with tebow, he had a few decent games then everyone figured it out”

    Yep, you’re exactly right. I remember in the playoffs when the mighty Pittsburgh Steelers ‘figured him out’ and crushed the Broncos.

    Oh wait, that didn’t happen at all.

  73. rodaday says: Mar 19, 2012 1:40 PM

    Tebow to the 49ers where he takes them to the Super Bowl. Just like another lefty QB who liked to run and all the experts said would never be a quality NFL starter did.

    Denver goes 6-10 and misses the playoffs.

  74. canuckinamerica says: Mar 19, 2012 1:41 PM

    God made Peyton do it, Tim.

  75. holeinone09 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:42 PM

    Miami isn’t the place no one supposedly wants to go to. It’s Cleveland!

  76. jpb12 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:43 PM

    Jags are the clear choice.
    Either Henne or Gabbert could go the other way.

    Broncos need a backup. Unless Sorgi is coming out of retirement, Henne makes sense.

    Cleveland needs a QB.
    Jets need a QB.
    Az may need a QB…

    And of course the Dolphins can’t get out of their own way.

  77. rabidbillsfan says: Mar 19, 2012 1:43 PM

    I’m sure the Dolphins will pony up a 2nd rounder for him…

  78. mikevicksdoggydaycare says: Mar 19, 2012 1:43 PM

    Dont the eagles need a 3rd qb. Maybe andy can do something about timmys throwing and with vick being injury prone i could see them signin him, hell he cant be worse than vince young was. I still think its a mistake for manning to go to denver instead of SF.

  79. 49er60 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:44 PM

    this is a case of the ” nice guy ” finishing last .

  80. trojan33sc says: Mar 19, 2012 1:44 PM

    Nothing to boost your esteem in watching your trade value equate to a box of “mcnuggets & side of fries” after having one helluva ride to the playoffs in the prior season. “Ouch”

  81. milehigh85 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:44 PM

    Whatever happens I’m still a Tebow fan… I hope somehow he stays in Denver.

  82. Philadelphia says: Mar 19, 2012 1:45 PM

    I love how they all talk about PM staying in the AFC so there could be a Manning Superbowl…..

    As opposed to him already being in the AFC for 14 years and his brother being in NY for 8?

  83. tdk24 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:45 PM

    Watch the Pats trade Ocho for him.

  84. armoderate says: Mar 19, 2012 1:46 PM

    You have to remember, Casserly is an idiot so take what he says with a grain of salt. This is the first rumor he’s put out that actually came true. As far as talent evaluator and football guru, Casserly proved he wasn’t either at Houston. That’s why he’s a media shrill and not in football. I think there will be several teams that would pony up a 3rd or 4th rounder who currently have a question mark at QB. Look at Alex Smith. How in the hell did he continue to be in the league?

  85. myeaglescantwin says: Mar 19, 2012 1:47 PM

    Tebow needs a west coast offense.

    & how can you clowns say he isnt worth a 5-3rd round pick.. Apparently you havent been watching him play. Give him a QB coach and let him mature as a passer for at least another year..

    i see teams lining up with 3rd rounders in hand..

    Andy Reid can take him, coach him for a year then trade him to Arizona for a pro bowler and a 1st round pick.

  86. suhisabeast90 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:48 PM

    Nice backup for Big Ben. Low risk high reward. Steelers wanted to draft him anyway!

  87. squared80 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:49 PM

    Yeah, after all those big FA signings, TB is going to take 12 steps backwards and start Tebow over Freeman. Did you really just say that? What a great football mind you have.

  88. the1theycallpatch says: Mar 19, 2012 1:53 PM

    Somewhere Kyle Orton is laughing like Lloyd Christmas after he slips laxatives in Harry’s drink.

  89. thcnote says: Mar 19, 2012 1:53 PM

    The people that love Tebow are the people responsible for the Broncos having to trade him. If you morons wouldn’t treat him like he was an all pro QB and see him for what he is ( a QB that needs a lot of work) then maybe the Broncos could keep him and let him develop under Manning. But you all have made it such a circus that it wouldn’t surprise me if no team wanted to deal with Tebowmania.

  90. hedleykow says: Mar 19, 2012 1:56 PM

    How much is a Team Chaplin worth in today’s market in the NFL?

    Exactly. Not much.

  91. jamaltimore says: Mar 19, 2012 1:57 PM

    I hope both Manning and the Horse tooth Elway fail terribly here. I’m not a Fan of Tebow but Elway is jerk and I hope he outsmarts himself and is run out of town like he ran out on the BALTIMORE COLTS!

  93. rc33 says: Mar 19, 2012 1:59 PM

    Not a Tebow fan but it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if this blew up in Elway’s face.
    Bottom line is if Peyton & the Broncos don’t get it done in 2012…and by get it done I don’t mean just make the playoffs…then he’ll come back in 2013, at age 37.
    And so on..
    Not unlike when the Celtics picked up Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, there’s a limited window of opportunity and the meter is running. Better get it done right now.

  94. belichickrulz says: Mar 19, 2012 1:59 PM

    I think the best fit for TEBOW would be New England. Reunited with Josh McDaniel and learning how to QB from Tom Brady could make all the difference in his career.

  95. snowpea84 says: Mar 19, 2012 2:00 PM

    I’d love to seehim on the Patriots. Sit behind Brady for a few years while being part of certain packages.

  96. ernie ernie says: Mar 19, 2012 2:01 PM

    At first I thought the title was “denver expecting much for Tebow’ and thought are they nuts.

    Yes of course they will basically give him away.
    I feel sorry for the guy in a way. After all he did win and he took the team to the playoffs. But I listen the analyst who know football. Before the draft the word was poor throwing motion and weak arm on the out pass, not a good prospect at QB.

    They were right. Denver spent three years working with this guy and he never really developed into the kind of QB they wanted. They gave him the opportunity to flourish, he can’t complain about not having the chances.

  97. thousandcasts says: Mar 19, 2012 2:01 PM

    It doesn’t matter if Tebow is a “nice guy” or not. Most people outside of Denver and any local church know that Tebow is a horrible NFL QB. He can’t be traded to the arena league because they require someone who can actually throw the ball.

    He caught teams off guard last year, that’s not gonna happen again and Denver’s FO is smart enough to realize this. Tebow is NOT a long term solution at QB. Not today, not tomorrow, not for any team.

  99. fwippel says: Mar 19, 2012 2:03 PM

    Okay, I don’t understand the rush to push Tebow out of town. There’s no question he’s the backup now, but why does that mean he’s got to go?

    Furthermore, what’s with this story? It’s almost like this organization is embarrassed by the guy’s presence. Why? The Broncos were 1-4 last year when Tebow took over the starting job. While he struggled at points, he managed to lead his team to the playoffs, and engineer a playoff victory over a Pittsburgh team that many thought was headed for the Super Bowl.

    I don’t blame the Broncos for going out and getting Manning, because there are about 23 other teams that he would immediately make better. But discarding Tebow like they’re embarrased by his presence? There’s more to this story than the Bronco front office is letting on.

  100. georgebrett says: Mar 19, 2012 2:03 PM

    I think Denver is missing out if they trade him or release him. Tebow brings an option not many teams have in short yardage situations and it doesn’t even have to be as a quarterback. Line him up anywhere on the field and he will get tons of attention. You also have to think about Manning getting hurt again and the what if’s. You have probably the most quality young man in all of football on your roster and you’re going to let him go? Why? He doesn’t make much in a football sense and he brings nothing but good to a team that embraces him on and off the field.

    Lastly, all of you Tebow bashers are comedy. This guy is a gamer that has the will to win and you guys bash on him because he prays and has faith. Try it, you might like it.

    If two teams want him, they might get a 4th or 5th, otherwise forget it, maybe a box of used tissues or Packer “stock”.

    Peyton is not going to share time with Tebow. Plus, if Peyton is 80% the QB he used to be, he’s still better than Tebow.
    Peyton will sell seats. Tebow will move on.

  103. kenny328usa says: Mar 19, 2012 2:08 PM

    And in other news the most ungrateful football fans in america tarred and feathered the man that made their horrible football team respectable last year. And John Elway was quoted when asked about trading tebow saying “I’m sorry tim who?”

  104. purplepride4ever says: Mar 19, 2012 2:08 PM

    There would be no Tebow if it wasn’t for Denver’s defense. Tebow will never make it with a team with a bad defense.

    “I have never seen a person who you would think would be loved and adored by everyone get treated so badly. (Tebow) has never once “tooted his own horn” or done anything to cause harm or embarrassment to his organization or teammates.”

    The whole Tebowing thing was tooting his own horn. The praying on the sidelines when he knew he was miked up was tooting his own horn. It was all “Hey look at me!”

    One thing Tebow is not, is stupid. He knows he’s not very good at the NFL level, but if he does enough of the “Thank you Jeebus stuff,” some hate group disguised as Christian (like Focus on the Family) will pay him a bunch of money to speak out against lesbians visiting their dying loved ones or half-time performers flipping the middle finger.

    fwippel, it isn’t hard to understand that the broncos organization—Bolen, Elway, and Fox don’t want the entire drama and blind followers of Tim tebow causing a stir when Manning throws his first pick. The drama and tim Tebow for long term doesn’t make sense.

    I personally like and respect what Tebow is about. Most of us would be proud if he married one of our daughters. He is a clean-cut, sincere Christian. I love that in him. He doesn’t hit his girlfriend, he doesn’t “make it rain” in “scrip” clubs, he isn’t pulling a gun on anyone……

    He just isn’t an NFL STARTING QB over the long-term. He beat ONE team with a winning record. Elway knows that the way Tebow plays over the long haul will not get them that far.

    Denver won games DESPITE the way he played SO POORLY in the 1st 3 quarters of the game, that the “miraculous” comebacks SHOULD HAVE BEEN WON IN THE 3rd quarter, but Tebow put the offense and team in such terrible positions, the DEFENSE and their kicker helped get them alot of those victories.

    I like TTebow, I just don’t like him as a starting NFL qb for the long haul…..a few games, sure!
    Stopgap….sure! But HE didn’t win those on his own…..he actually was in the way of winning for most the games he won until he finally played well enough…..

    I wish him well in Jax or Miami……

    He’s not disrespected… he’s just not very good. Waaaay too much credit given to Tebow for winning. Just for a second, take a look at the defensive side of the ball. THAT is why the Broncos were winning.

    The nice thing for Tebow is now he’ll be able to play in a place where he’s wanted.

    If he goes to the Jags, it’s only the owner that wants him to sell seats. If he goes to Miami, it’s only because no one else wanted to and they’ll draft a replacement in 2013.
    Anywhere else he goes, he’s a backup or only comes in on trick plays. Tebow should have never been drafted in the first round.

    Tebow to Miami for an old used conch shell.

    Priorities:

    1. teach him to block
    2. turn him into a tight end
    3. option/wildcat QB when appropriate
    4. sell more tickets
    5. win more games
    6. everything is beauuutiful!!!!

  115. thinwhiteduke76 says: Mar 19, 2012 2:31 PM

    Is anyone surprised?

    While fans think it’s some divine intervention that he wins some games, Tebow’s stat record is really bad. Check it yourself.

    I’m not sure why Elway continues to treat Tebow with disrespect

  118. thepitts says: Mar 19, 2012 2:44 PM

    Personally, I’d like to see Tebow as Ben’s backup….with all the bad press the Steelers have gotten over the last few years I think he’s what we need….oh yeah, throw Jonathan Stewart in to my wishlist.

  119. ericjshelton says: Mar 19, 2012 2:49 PM

    Jacksonville should call and offer to take Tebows contract off of denvers hands, but since they would be hamstringing themselves to him Denver should throw in D.T for Jacksonville helping them out.

  120. boilerup1869 says: Mar 19, 2012 2:49 PM

    I still think Tebow isn’t a good quarterback, but I kinda can’t help but feel for the kid with how the Broncos have treated him. I know it’ s a business, but it sure is brutal.

    Sounds like the guy saying “..I’d be surprised if he went for much better than a fifth rounder” is trying to make a headline. Tebow is AT LEAST worth a fourth rounder on his H-back skills alone.

    At a minimum, the guy can run in the NFL. He routinely trucked and outran linebackers and secondary players last year. Add in his star power and potential as a QB, he could definitely go for a 2nd-3rd rounder to the right buyer.

    Elway didn’t want Tebow there and neither does Peyton/Archie.

    Who knows what Tebow was like in the locker room and the Tebow fangirls and nutcase followers were getting out of hand.

  128. patriotsjim says: Mar 19, 2012 3:12 PM

    “Trade him to anywhere that doesn’t have media or access to a podium microphone. A silent Tebow is a good Tebow”…

    So what you’re saying is you want him traded to the Patriots… there is no place on earth more controlled than behind the Iron Curtain at Patriot Place…. If he can keep Ocho Cinco from talking and twittering, he can keep the mics away from TT. You don’t want to mess with Darth Belichick.

  130. EJ says: Mar 19, 2012 3:29 PM

    Tim Tebow can be a successful starting QB in the NFL, heck Doug Flutie did it when so many people over and over put him down for his style of play. Does anyone remember Flutie’s jump and throw, because the offensive lineman were so much taller than him? Tebow has already prov-en he can win, he just needs a Head Coach and GM to believe in him.

  131. pafinsfan says: Mar 19, 2012 3:31 PM

    As a long time fins fan I say bring him on. The guy has heart and knows how to win. What’s the alternative? At least he is a guy I can respect and get behind. I just think he needs time and you know what? The Dolphins aren’t going anywhere this year anyway, there is no one to throw to!

  132. kevinb73 says: Mar 19, 2012 3:33 PM

    Being the classy guy that Tebow is, he probably already called Peyton to congratulate him and welcome him to Denver. I’m sure he’s bummed but he has way too much class and character to complain or say anything negative.

    Peyton chose comfortability and money over his best chance at winning a championship and playing in same conference as lil bro. Why not choose the team that was less than a quarter from playing in the championship if you’re really serious about winning another title? Guess he’s contempt in having 1 more than Marino.

    And it’s not like Joe Montana when he went to Chiefs. Here’s the difference between the two. Montana got traded to Chiefs. He would of never signed with the Chiefs. But like any true competitor he made the best of his given situation. Something Peyton didn’t in this case.

    -bitter niners fan

    __
    Because he realizes that the AFC is the softer conference and that it will be easier to get to the Super Bowl that way. Just one bit of proof of this is that the last three Super Bowl winners were from the NFC.

    The Niners will be just fine without him.

  134. choice1329 says: Mar 19, 2012 3:51 PM

    I am not a Tebow fan, but I will say this. Tebow worked hard for the Broncos, and they in return did nothing but disrespect him. If they think for a moment they are going to get something good out of this, they certainly have another think coming.

    Keep Tim, manning can make him a better qb. I say trade or get ride of Quinn, he ain’t doing nothing but sitting in the sideline & getting paid for nothing. John elway will regret trading tim (if he does), besides manning can get hurt & tebow can take over and do better than quin.

  146. gazzzmann says: Mar 20, 2012 3:40 PM

    He will NEVER be a Patriot, Belichick would never allow all that “holy” stuff creating a circus,hope he goes to the Jets their already a circus w/Ringmaster Rex and club clown Sanchez
