They say you can always go home again. And Tim Tebow will wait a while to test out that theory.
Reportedly given the choice between a trade to the Jets and a trade to the Jaguars, Tebow has picked the Jets over the team that plays in his hometown of Jacksonville.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Broncos will send Tebow and a seventh-round pick to the Jets in exchange for a fourth-round and sixth-round selection.
The Jets also will reimburse the Broncos for half of the $5 million salary advance the Broncos paid under Tebow’s contract.
UPDATE 9:00 p.m. ET: In what may be the first case of Schefter-on-Schefter crime, ESPN’s Adam Schefter followed his tweet explaining that Tebow will choose between the Jets and Jaguars with a tweet explaining that the Broncos will make the best decision for the franchise. Either way, Tebow is a Jet.
