Tim Tebow Traded to Jets

The Tim Tebow saga is about to start a new chapter.

The Denver Broncos traded the polarizing quarterback to the New York Jets Wednesday on a day filled with NFL headlines. The deal sends Tebow and a seventh-round pick to New York for a fourth and a sixth-round pick, according to the Denver Post.

The move came just one day after Denver signed four-time MVP quarterback Peyton Manning to a five-year, $96 million contract.

It is not usual for a team to get rid of a young quarterback. It is not usual for a team to get rid of a quarterback who won seven of his first eight starts the previous year. It is especially not usual for a team to get rid of a quarterback that led them to a playoff victory.

But this offseason has been far from usual.

With one of the all-time great quarterbacks released this offseason, Denver saw an opportunity to improve dramatically at the position. While Tebow won games last season, his play, particularly his throwing ability, was a question mark throughout the year.The Broncos decided to hand the reins to Manning, even after he missed last season due to a neck injury.

Mark Sanchez is likely to remain the starting quarterback in New York, but this move is certain to add to the pressure he has faced.

Tebow will now be in one of the most scrutinizing media markets in the country. With Rex Ryan and the reported offseason locker room riffs, Tebow will be just another reason to keep an eye on the Jets.
