Tim Tebow Trade
March 21, 2012 by staff
Tim Tebow Trade, It’s Tebow Time on Broadway. The New York Jets acquired Tim Tebow from the Denver Broncos today, bringing the polarizing quarterback to a team that just recently gave starter Mark Sanchez a three-year contract extension.
Denver general manager Brian Xanders said the Broncos will receive fourth- and sixth-round draft picks, while New York gets a seventh-rounder — all in 2012. The trade first was reported by Fox Sports.
Tebow, who became expendable when the Broncos signed Peyton Manning to a five-year deal, is expected to complement Sanchez, who received a $40.5-million contract extension, with $20.5 million guaranteed, earlier this month. The Jets also had pursued Manning.
Tebow led the Broncos to the playoffs last season — along the way, beating Sanchez and the Jets, who missed the postseason. But Denver executive John Elway believed Manning gave the team a better chance at winning a championship now.
For the Jets, Tebow is expected to add a versatile dimension to the offense, including running the team’s wildcat package — something new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano enjoys using. He also provides a solid presence in a locker room that was rife with infighting last season — particularly between Sanchez and wide receiver Santonio Holmes.
He also brings with him a flock of fervent fans for reasons that have to do as much with his faith as his football skills. A devout Christian, he’s been a role model since his days at Florida, when he led the Gators to two national titles and captured the Heisman Trophy.
