On the surface, the decision of the Bears to sign linebacker Danny Trevathan from the Broncos has nothing to do with the Jets. At a deeper level, there’s a connection. And the Bears decided to point that out on Twitter.
Declared the Bears on Wednesday evening: “New #Bears LB Danny Trevathan was selected in sixth round of ’12 draft with pick Broncos acquired from Jets for Tim Tebow.”
Bears coach John Fox coached the Broncos when Tebow was dumped onto the Jets for the pick that became Trevathan. Now, the Broncos have to at least be considering the possibility of bringing back Tebow, given this week’s decimation of the depth chart.
I’m kidding about Tebow. Then again, given that the other choices apparently are Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III, maybe I’m not.
